I’m very excited to officially announce the release of my tribute to Aretha Franklin. Aretha has been an inspiration to countless musicians worldwide, so, I knew I had to do something to honor the “Queen of Soul” after her passing. Out of respect for the Queen, I decided not to hire a vocalist to sing these songs since there is only one Aretha Franklin. Instead, I put together my own melodic chord arrangement simultaneously covering her vocal melody along with the chords behind it on my guitar. This project covers “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and “Respect” in the form of a medley. I’m also very excited to have the members of The Jesse Loewy Band on this project including; Rich Budesa, Mike Whren, and Neil Simpkins.
