The Brooklyn urban-soul rock trio, The Nth Power, is proud to announce the release of their long awaited fourth studio album, Reverence, and are hitting the road to support the release (August 2019). Recorded over a period of two years in six studios and cities, with the bulk of the work being done at Chillhouse Studios with Will Holland (Pixies, Dead Can Dance) and Treesound Studios with Paul Diaz (Outkast) in Atlanta, GA, Reverence proves to be the band's most focused effort to date. There are few bands as busy these days and with the musical pedigree of its three members, Nikki Glaspie (Beyoncé, Maceo Parker) on drums/vocals, Nate Edgar (John Brown's Body) on bass, and Nick Cassarino (Big Daddy Kane, Jennifer Hartswick) on guitar/vocals, The Nth Power have achieved something truly significant, making a great and passionately relevant album, while essentially being on tour throughout the whole recording process. For much of the record, The Nth Power worked with producer Will Bradford of the band SeepeopleS, and there is certainly evidence of the band stretching itself sonically on Reverence. But, most importantly, the album represents a new level of maturity, both lyrically and compositionally, and there is a heartfelt thread of esoteric sentiment that permeates through the entire track list. There is assuredly a story being told here.
The album also features musical contributions from the legendary Maceo Parker (James Brown) and Ivan Neville (Neville Bros, Dumpstaphunk, Bonnie Raitt) , but Reverence is, in many ways, an eloquent and consummate adieu to long time collaborator Kofi Burbridge (1961-2019), who passed away earlier this year. Burbridge's musical presence is expansive and he plays on almost every track, including an exquisite flute arrangement on "Spirits," one the of the album's highlights and is one of the songs that will resonate the most with longtime fans. Other stand outs include the anthemic "Hero," the reggae infused "Shine On," and the astonishingly graceful "I Will Never Leave You." Reverence, as a whole, serves as true testament to a prodigious musical act truly finding its legs through the lens of compassion, loss, and heartbreak, and the end result is nothing short of inspiring. Reverence is being released on July 4th and will be available on all major streaming platforms. The band is currently on tour and pre-order advance copies of Reverence will be available at the band's shows starting in August. Opening up the evening is the Brooklyn based Phantom Vanity and Portland's own Janaesound.
