The album is a wide array of tempestuous soul arias, sentimental ballads, urban love dramas, Memphis blues, upbeat existentialism and last but certainly not least, a civil rights anthem.

Starting at the beginning of this year and continuing every few months, Chicago native Zeshan Bagewadi traveled down to Ardent to track and mix his latest project. Having grown up being exposed to Indo-Pakistani and Stax-era soul music, Zeshan's musical background is excellently reflected in this new album. Zeshan called upon Stax Records legend Lester Snell to produce and assemble the players, Memphis' own wrecking crew.

The album will be released on Chicago label Minty Fresh in April 2017. Stay tuned for updates!
