*("Dont You Just Love Those Holidays", my latest holiday is here: http://cdbaby.com/rudy4)
Relax, have your favorite whatever and enjoy the soulful, clear, joyful, colorful, sexy, uplifting and much more sounds of Rudy Jovan, an H-Town guy. A true Love Cruise Inside,really!
Don't be surprised if the sounds remind you of The Temptations, Spinners, the late Johnny Taylor, Luther Vandross, Frankie Beverly, Lionel Richie and many other legendary R & B artist. And soothing sounds like Johnny Mathis, the late Eddie Kendricks and Curtis Mayfield, and the likes of Maxwell and Brian McKnight all wrapped neatly in the music and voice of Rudy Jovan.
I did a lot of lead singing with a group back at Texas Southern University called The TSU COLLEGIATES. We worked with the TSU Toronados who later backed up Archie Bell The Drells.
After TSU, for over the next twenty five years, I was a family man and successful business entrepreneur. I was a positive black business professional role model, but had I paid the price I surely would have made it long ago in the music industry, but I loved my family and community life.
I could have joined many bands and occasionally I did gig.
Band leaders and groups would come by my home or office and ask me to write them a song, I would, but they seldomif ever got to the studio or broke up
I sang for many years in church choirs and played some sax and a lot of lead vocal with a Catholic Jazz Mass. Man, the Jazz Mass was great!
I WOULD change the past by simply doing things better.
It was probably written that I do what I am doing, right now! I dedicate this album to my parents, the late Rudolph H. Stearnes for all of his biz savvy, Love, intelligence and sacrifice and my late mother, Devona J.Stearnes, my mother, for passing on the passion of love for music and people, and her musical talent. They were married almost 70, count them, seventy years!
To say God has been good to me would be an understatement,
likely a sin!
Where ever this first CD takes me I'm ready. Although the first album, I have written hundreds and hundreds of full, complete songs and had the privilege of writing and producing the music for several theatre plays written by Shirley Servance, a sensational Houston, Tx. based playwright.
I love writing more than anything. I have NO problem with performing! I have superior writing skills and taking a poem, idea or thought and developing a fully produced recording from it in JUST time. I can help complete song recordings for OTHER ARTIST, bridge that gap between their song idea to a finished complete recording, and,I'm VERY REASONABLE. Just email with your concern.
I felt a strong desire to write a love soul album, and it's happening just that way! I thank God for my health, talent, youthful aging and a clear, creative productive mind.
HOLIDAY SEASON! If you order now you will receive my HOLDIDAY CD "HOLIDAY LOVING", F-R-E-E in a few WEEKS!
The last two clips are from HOLIDAY LOVING.
Track 1, Louisiana Girl was a lot of fun and focuses in a small way on some of the myth's(to my knowledge) of Louisiana women, but is still about LOVE.
Track 2, Good Morning, is loved by many and I titled the CD by it.
My songs are long, from 4:32 to 7:20, but THEY BUILD AND BUILD from beginning to a soulful, surprise ending.
Each song has a high bridge and soulful &breakdown so you'll have to HEAR THE ENTIRE SONG TO REALLY APPRECIATE IT!
Everything on this CD started with MY idea,all the vocals and music, everything you hear, is Me!
I thank all who inspire me and hope I serve as inspiration to others.
Peace Be With You All!
