This is Ola Onabulé‘s eighth studio album. He recently had tremendous success in the UK with a remix of "Soul Town" from his 2004 album "In Emergency, Break Silence". The British Nigerian soul singer and songwriter who sounds like a mix between Frankie Beverly and Michael McDonald, recorded his latest 12-song set in London with George Whitty mixing the songs.

The album is "as much a work of exploration as it is a declaration", according to Ola and his songs really have a unique sound – a soulful melange of Jazz and Soul with a lot of heart, depth and insight. There are some beautiful love songs here like "Love Again" with a catchy guitar by Femi Tomowo. And funky excursions to the 70s like the mesmerizing "Patience Endures".
