This Shade's first full-length release, created to give listeners a variety of instrumentals for relaxation and introspection, while also providing the first extended glimpse at the Shade's growth as a musician, writer, producer and recording engineer.
To my Father God, my wife NeShea, my kids (Nay, Jr, BB, Don), my parents, the late Theodore P. Jenifer and Gwendolyn H. Jenifer for nurturing my gift; to my siblings Theodore, Jason and Megan for being a constant source of light and happiness in my life; to the Harris/Griffeon/Vonk crew, the VCMI family, my artistic muses TAKE 6, Fred Hammond, Commissioned, J. Moss, B.SLADE, Aaron Lindsey, Asaph Ward, Baby Dubb and Shawn Martin, and to Rob Ulsh, Darin Pinkney, Jeff Brown, Antonio Dixon, Graham Cochrane (BIG UPS), Dubspot's Daniel Wyatt, Justin from WinkSound, my bro Jay and Chris (from Upper Marlboro) for Pro Tools tips, and especially to Damon Jenkins and Bernice Felder, whose belief in and $$$upport of my gift is why you're able to hear this.
This is my first album, but I'm gettin' better every time I go in - VOLUME 2: THE VOCLAS is coming soon! Thx for listening. I hope this blesses you.
Love + Respect - slj
