Chris Turner – If You Want Me To Stay (Sly & The Family Stone Cover)

Happy Monday!

You may remember him from my post on the band ERIMAJ “Conflict of a Man” or even seen him sing on tour with Bilal, However I like to follow his musical journey so check out his cover for the classic Sly & The Stone “If You Want Me To Stay”. I absolutely love his voice and it sounds even more fresh when he slips in a little Musiq Soulchild “Just Friends” (one of my favorite songs) …Enjoy!

Afro Chic’s Pick Friday Mix: ERIMAJ – Conflict of a Man

I had a chance to see Bilal live this week (AMAZING!) and met a dope artist by the name of Chris Turner who not only sings for Bilal but is also apart of the upcoming band, ERIMAJ.  Formed by Houston native and dummer Jamire Williams, ERIMAJ (his name spelled backwards) has been a moving and grooving sensation for underground bands today. The group includes; Corey King (Music Co-Director) Matthew Stevens, Chris Turner (on the vocals), John Ellis, Vicente Archer and Jason Moran on the piano.  Their latest single “Conflict of a Man” tells a story and the visual definitely paints a pretty picture. I’m hoping that I’d get a chance to see them live in the bay area…. *hint hint* lol
