Music Programmer: Chad Courneya

Artist Selected: Gavin Turek

Song Selected: The Distance

Chad’s thoughts on the track…

This song just came out on her most recent EP, Good Look For You. The track settles right in-between r&b, funk and pop for the perfect mixture of soul and spunk. Gavin Turek who sings backup for Mayer Hawthorne in his soul funk group, Tuxedo is a future funk diva legend!

Unfamiliar, but pleasing to everyone’s ears, it works for a dinner/late night lounge setting. It has a dim lit vibe –eloquent and soulful. Not too high in energy, but groovy enough to dance to if you wanted. That’s what you’re looking for in that type of setting. I added this one across a selection of my high-end dining clients for that very reason and the feedback has been nothing but positive.

Listen to “The Distance” below.
