ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Armed with the rhythms of Dance, infused with the vocals of “Ole Soul”, and tainted by the edge of Hip-Hop, Trade Stevens attacks each supremely. Because his father was an Army Specialist, they traveled the world and spent time in various settings. Trades talents were realized during a class “sing-off” for the role of Santa Claus in the annual Christmas play. Upon winning the sing-off Trade discovered his passion.

Once settled in Michigan, Trade would hone his gifts, focusing on writing, production and vocal stylings. He’d sing in various talent shows, local plays and weddings. Realizing he wanted more, Trade set his sites on the big time. He’d move from Michigan to NYC in hopes of securing a recording contract. Much to his dismay this would prove trying. Trade continued to perform in local events while pursing a recording contract. One of Trades most notable performances was at the Apollo Theater where Trade performed the Teddy Pendergrass classic “Turn off the Lights”. The audience was moved to a frenzy. Trade would receive a standing ovation.

After years of struggling, Trade would move closer to his goal, securing a recording contract with a major “Indie” label. Once signed, Trade would start recording what he thought would be his debut album. To Trades dismay, his relationship with the label soured and Trade moved on.

With an album set for release, Trade confesses “Recording an album from the heart, mind, body and soul proved challenging. But it was worth it”.

Citing Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, Darryl Coley, Barbra Streisand as some of his favorite singer/songwriters/entertainers Trades voice harkens back to an era when singers were true singers and the songs they sang told great stories.

“It’s my hope- my music inspires. It’s my hope- my music fills people with joy and hope and insight to ones self.”

It been a long time since someone new has popped on the scene with the flavor of old school that has been missing for so long and that a brotha who can sing and I mean Trade is off the hook. he
is a great vocalist and the songs are so beautiful
with great romantic lyics that you can relate too.

This will go on your replay list once purchased and you cannot wait to share it with anyone who has a good ear and lust for some good ole soul
music. I leave with just 2 words-"THANK YOU"
