Back To Intimacy has been an incredible journey for me. It represents my growth as a poet, performer, singer and composer. It began in one direction, then slowly took on a life of it’s own, which in turn caused me to reevaluate my whole creative process. So that being said, Back To Intimacy is the end result. I tried to make a CD, that I myself would want to listen to. Took the time to make sure that all 17 songs were meaningful and relevant, and a full and honest representation of who and what I represent as a person and an artist. Here is a reviews of my CD, Back To Intimacy
Back to Intimacy
The quest for true love and intimacy is never ending. We all want that special someone with whom we can spend the rest of our lives. As we embark on this search for love and intimacy, we look for answers that will help us along the way. What is love? What is intimacy? How will I know if I found either – or both?
On Back to Intimacy, The Nxt Level (Mario Coleman) will take you on a journey of discovery. Through messages shared through poetic prose, you will be empowered, enlightened, inspired and encouraged. As the bass line ridden tracks and smooth vocals enter your ear gates, the musical lyrics and Nxt’s imaginative tongue will penetrate your intellect, beginning a thought process that will allow you to view love and intimacy with a new set of eyes and a strengthened heart.
Although Nxt has much to say about love and romance on Back to Intimacy, he takes time to speak words of healing and empowerment to African American women. In pieces like Black Jewel, This Flower, and You’re Beautiful, Nxt reaffirms the beauty of the Black Woman. He offers her a way of Escape from the cares of this life, as he asks her to Smile 4 Me. He reminds her of the power that lies within her in You Created Me.
But Nxt does not stop there. On the title track Back to Intimacy, he invites us back to a time when love and intimacy was expressed in word and deed. He takes us back to a time where a lady had no doubt about where she stood in a man’s life. One and Only expressed these sentiments from the view of a man who is ready to settle down. This man has no problems wearing his heart on his sleeve or letting his lady know who she is to him as expressed in You Are My Heartbeat. Inspired by the love he’s being given.
Back to Intimacy also has a beautiful romantic side. On Would It Be Cool?, Nxt takes you on an imaginative journey of loving thoughts expressed in loving actions. Come Chill With Me is the anticipatory journey of a man longing to spend a romantic evening with the one who completes him. As they anticipate being together, Nxt encourages you to allow those thought to take you away from your current reality. On Think Of Me, Nxt encourages you to allow yourself to be drawn away by your thoughts of your special someone. These thoughts will make that romantic evening By Candlelight a more pleasurable experience.
Back to Intimacy is an awe inspiring journey of empowerment through love, romance, and intimacy. Get on board. Take the trip. You will most definitely enjoy the ride all the way back –Back to Intimacy
