Soul and funk are not for the faint of heart. It’s for the ever romantic rebel and the fiery lover. For decades, Andre Williams has delivered songs coated in funk-lessened riffs and soulful relevance. In his new album, I Wanna Go Back To Detroit City, Williams continues this trend by brilliantly displaying a keen ability to stylize his cool, nitty-and-gritty, bluesy funk. I Wanna Go Back To Detroit City echoes his impressive persona, defined by his smooth and charismatic voice. These are nine tracks that defiantly remind the listener of the proud strength, but sad state, of the once prosperous motor vehicle capital of America. As the record spins, listeners will easily find that Williams’ voice inspires nostalgia for the rustic and mighty Detroit.
