About this item
For fans of.. Durand Jones & The Indications, Frightnrs, Thee Sinseers, Jr. Thomas & The Volcanos, Bobby Orozo.
Producer, songwriter, and member of Thee Sinseers, with an upcoming LP on Colemine Records; Joey embodies the East LA sweet soul scene, and it now dipping into reggae! As the leader of the modern Chicano soul outfit, Thee Sinseers, and releasing a string of singles as a solo artist, Joey Quinones and his crew have recently been ushering in a new era of modern soul. It is the type of music that shares a genesis with the birth of soul and R&B sounds emitted from the classic lowrider cruising down Whittier Boulevard to the sunshine-y vibes of traditional ska and dancehall reggae. And with his debut 45 on Colemine, Quinones shows that he's adept at not just the slow and low, but also the mellow sounds of early reggae.
Matt says: Sounds like vintage lover's rock - and had me scouring the internet for the 'original' release like a fool. This is the original! Joey Quinones brings back those vintage feels and flavours, having dabbled with soul we now get his authentic-as-you-like take on reggae, with an aforementioned lover's / rocksteady feel to proceedings. Well good.
