ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CHARLES STEPHEN HUGHES, singer/composer - LOVE NOTES

A good, rhythmic beat with a sturdy bass and vocals that make you want to get up and shout.

Genre-melding: He mixes r&b, gospel, and house influences to come up with a sound that makes your body want to get up and move.

"I write lyrics that come from my heart and soul. I write about something I've been through or where I was at a particular moment, a special feeling that I experienced."

He writes bittersweet wisdom: LOVE HURTS / but it's good for you. A frenetic chase: You've got me RUNNING FOR YOUR LOVE. A wake-up call: TIME AFTER TIME he's left you lonely / why are you so sad?

Strident: I'm sick of all this bullshit / people living in the street / there's got to be another way / there's got to be a better day / THIS DAY SHALL BE.

Fervent: LOVE LETTER (DEAR LORD). Inspirational: PRAISE HIM! Puts your hands and feet into holy motion!

He gets close and shares some tender motion: LOVE UNLIMITED. Stays close. His mellow voice intones: My DESTINY / is here for me / in your arms / is where I want to be.

He turns reminiscent: I remember a sunny day / a love so tender / oh how I remember / AUNTIE'S LOVE.

Then loose, low-down, & blues-tinged: MOMMA SAID / a piece of a man / is better than none at all. And scathing: But truth is very hard to find / coming from your kind / WHAT IS LOVE / a one-way street.

Finally uplifting, anthemic, soaring: I'm calling all STARS.

Charles has been currently working on a new project, entitled...The Dance....

Watch for it !!!!

Lornetta Payne

SISTERS! This one is for us! It delivers the low-down on love.
I really don't know which one of these is my favorite song. Every one takes me to a place I've been with love -- both the bad and the beautiful places. I didn't know a man could write about love like this. And BROTHERS, take a tip -- if you want your woman to think you understand her, buy her this CD!

T.K. - Japan

Nice, smooth dance !!!!!

Dean Phillips

Highly engaging, great beats, emotionally compelling lyrics
I loved this CD! It's great for both listening and dancing. It covers the whole gamut of moods related to love in its many forms -- whether romantic, spiritual, or familial -- and does so with insinuating and varied beats that fit perfectly with the sentiments of the lyrics. And his voice will melt even the most hardened of hearts!

Jessica

Awesome
I think it's great that a man can sing about his dreams and not get critized! Great job Mr Hughes. Keep up the good work. I recommend everyone to get this C.d, this is a very talented young man....

Tammy Fargo

I really enjoyed this cd as well as the artistry.
This Artist is truly expressing himself in that he is singing from the heart something that is truly missing in the music industry. If he continues to push himself I'm sure that he will go far in this industry.

Barry Frauman

Excellent word-note match and trancelike reiteration.
A fine job, with excellent word-note match and trancelike reiteration. In the 4th song, there's a strong reminder of the mean-spiritedness that now grips Washington D.C.
