Toussaint New Single Release Set

04/08/2010
.
With a husky tenor that is the epitome of soul and a unique ability to link soul with roots, hip hop gospel and blues, Toussaint's sound continues to live up to his nickname, The Liberator.

While liberated from any boundaries of form or genre, Toussaint remains grounded in soul and roots music. And with an epic album from I Grade Records on tap, Toussaint is poised to break new ground worldwide.

"Be You", the first single to be released from the forthcoming album, Roots In A Modern Time, is already taking roots and soul to another level. "Be You" will be available on iTunes on 4/20 (April 20) and the album drops this summer.

Toussaint has spent his entire life at the musical crossroads, always breaking new ground along the way. The son of a Baptist preacher and gospel singer, Toussaint nurtured his craft in the church at a young age before finding his own voice in the compelling lyrics and artistic independence of the hip-hop group Red Pill, the funk reggae oufit The China Band, the rock and soul of The Trama Unit, and most notably during the two years he spent as lead singer with legendary Stax Records and Blue Note recording group, Soulive.

Connecting with Virgin Islands-based I Grade Records-the label responsible for setting a new standard for roots reggae through critically acclaimed albums like Dezarie's "Fya", Niyorah's "Purification Session" and Midnite's "Assini"-puts both I Grade and Toussaint at the crossroads. Indeed, their upcoming abum, Roots In A Modern Time (set for a summer 2010 release) will be a defining moment for soul reggae and music fans everywhere.
