Southern harmonies and bluesy lead vocals characterize the stylings of Poppa Joe and The Harmonizers. Produced by Derek “DOA” Allen (Smokie Norful, The Thompson Community Singers, Shirley Murdock, Virtue, Wayman Tisdale, et al), this release epitomizes what is standard and revered in the finest Gospel quartet music.
Seasoned with Southern flavor and gut-wrenching vocals with a pinch of the 21 st Century, they deliver a hardy portion of your mother's gospel.
With the first single “Come By Here” Poppa Joe and the Harmonizers repeatedly request, “Oh Lord We Need You To Come By Here.” Though simple in lyrical content the sincerity and conviction in this heartfelt song clearly shines through. The background vocals flow over guitar licks like a soothing stream of holy water as the lead grabs you with its’ firm plea for redemption. In fact, throughout the album the listener is dazzled with sweet soothing harmonies and husky church/blues inspired lead vocals that prompt you to clap your hands and stomp your feet.
