Soul/Blues Singer Tad Robinson is Back in Style on New CD From Severn Records Due May 18

SEVERN, MD – Severn Records announces a May 18 release date for Back in Style, the latest CD from five-time Blues Music Award nominee Tad Robinson, with special guests The Memphis Horns and guitarist extraordinaire Alex Schultz. Severn Records is distributed in the U.S. by City Hall Records.

On his third disc from Severn Records, Tad Robinson puts his stamp on the soul side of today’s blues scene with Back in Style. Taking inspiration from the great sounds of Stax and Hi Records, Robinson literally oozes soul with his testifying delivery of the eight originals and two covers on the new CD. From the opening organ swell of the funky lead track, “Rained All Night,” through the soul anthem closer, “Get Back To Love,” Robinson explodes back on the scene with his authoritative, singular and passionate style. Throughout this collection, Robinson’s voice is suffused with varying shades of blue and exhibits the warmth and power that only the most seasoned vocalists on the scene can summon.
