Tavares, hearing that name conjures up the names of hits songs like, "Heaven Must be Missing an Angel", "Penney For Your Thoughts", & "More than a Woman", & "It Only Takes a Minute", & "Check it out" and "She's Gone", just to name a few.
This Grammy Award winning group of brothers, have definitely made their mark on this industry. Now, they embark on a new journey that will take them to uncharted waters. One of these brothers, namely Feliciano "Butch" Tavares, for the first time will go as a writer, and producer for his family. What you are going to hear, they hope. will bring you closer to them not only as artists, but as a family of brothers who have seen all sides of life, and now get their chance to express their views through their music.
This CD is something that Butch likes to call a Tavares sampler of tasty track tidbits.
The first song Heaven 24/7 is the first single from this CD, written by Butch for his wife Gracie who was the inspiration and also co-writer. Shouldn't surprise you when you bite into it because it continues their long time tradition of love ballads that their family is so well known for.
But now, we get to the next tasty morsel, which is entitled "I Owe". they get to stretch out with a young Rapper-Artist Jaye Smooth, kicking a strong groove track that is hard to ignore.
Moving right along, B.T. also brings some international flavor from a female Artist-Writer by the name of Susan Couch via Jamaica, who adds her own flavor to the mix along with the brothers in the song entitled "Lady", that Butch's son Jordan believes will be one of the favorites from this CD mix.
Continuing on with another spice, by way of Trinidad, is another female Artist-Writer by the name of Debbie Sargent. She teams up with Butch to bring you a groove ballad Entitled, "Wind & Rain", that will stir your emotions.
To finish this sampler, Butch again teams up with Jaye Smooth, and family member, Lionel Wood, in a song with strong lyrical content called "Late-Late Show". Together, they take the family to new heights of expression. Here again, surprisingly, showcasing his talents and lyrical ability as a Rapper, believe it or not.
We would like to thank "God" for blessing our family and giving us the strength and health to continue. We also want to thank our loyal fans stateside and all around the world for the many years of dedication.
Well there you have it, the Tavares sampler, check it out. The main course is yet to come, humorously entitled "Old Dawg-New Tricks". Co-produced by Chay Alexander Wright from Look-A-Like Productions.
So kick back and enjoy. See ya.
