Timmion Records subsidiary label Stylart once again comes through with a serious slice of soul and this time from Jonny Benavidez with Cold Diamond & Mink backing this smooth selection. Instrumental on the flip which always makes these releases double on the nice side and must haves.
This next chapter of Timmion’s talent scouting in the US will land home with the Purple Heart of Soul, and turn even the coldest of us to the love side. No prisoners taken. It’s time for Jonny Benavidez to lay his falsetto over the ever smooth backing of Cold Diamond & Mink. With the sweet as candy mid-pacer “Tell Me That You Love Me” he should go the whole mile.
Those, who have an insatiable thirst for crossover soul sounds by groups such as The Commands and TSU Toronadoes, should snatch up this piece of wax without haste. Texas made and California raised, Jonny has polished his teeth for years in doo wop groups and sung backing harmonies for big names such as Archie Bell and Eugene Pitt from The Jive Five. Currently residing in Austin, Texas he’s forming and coating even more sweet treats for Timmion.
It might not break the charts, but for some with the proper ear for beauty, this will undoubtedly be the new soul record of the year. Have a listen, if you are one of those privileged people.
