Product Description

Product Description

Marcella Detroit's outstanding new album is self-produced, and mixed by legendary Reggie Dozier, brother of Motown's Lamont Dozier of Holland-Dozier-Holland. It features top musicians including drummer James Gadson (Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Albert King, BB King) and bassist Reggie McBride (Al Jarreau, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Rod Stewart). Marcella says, It's a direct and deliberate return to my soul roots. You can take the girl out of Detroit but you can't take Detroit out of the girl .

About the Artist

Born in Detroit, Marcy Levy's musical career hit the ground running. She joined Bob Seger's band in the early 70 s, and went on to tour with Leon Russell before becoming a member of Eric Clapton's band in the mid-70 s. In addition to touring and recording with Clapton, she wrote several songs with him, including the multi-million selling hit Lay Down Sally. After four years she left to pursue a solo career - although she did rejoin his band in 1984 to record and tour with him for another year. This included performing at Live Aid in 1985. She went on to work with Aretha Franklin, Alice Cooper, Bette Midler, David Foster, and Robin Gibb, and co-wrote songs for Al Jarreau, Belinda Carlisle, and Chaka Khan. In 1987 Marcella began song-writing with former Bananarama member Siobhan Fahey, and the enormously successful Shakespear's Sister was launched. The band's debut album Sacred Heart instantly made the UK top ten, along with the single You're History. 1992's follow-up Hormonally Yours was an even bigger success with four chart-topping singles including the worldwide megahit Stay. This track still holds the UK record for the longest-running #1 single by a female artist. The melodramatic ballad featuring Marcella's soaring lead vocals and its memorable, Brit Award-winning music video secured Shakespear's Sister's place in pop history.

What a beautiful lady.
I was at the Apartment 58 London gig standing around 6 feet in front of her, in absolute awe of her incredible voice. She is an outstanding performer and some of the songs on this album are brilliantly funky and made everyone in the place dance. Pretty much lost for words to describe the whole experience but I would say every song deserves its place on this album. You will not be disappointed. Marcella Detroit reigns, long may she continue.

The whole album is quality from melody, lyrics, voice and production. Honest. Good for Marcella, if you get the chance to see her live, do it.

Marcella Detroit returns with her best studio album since Jewel her debut solo album. The Vehicle is amazingly consistent. Every single track flows together so precisely. They gel together like a family. This album I would describe as Soul/Funk/Pop fused into one. It's very commerical and uptempo.

Marcella's voice is as crisp and clear as anything she's done from her Solo work to Shakespears Sister. Speaking of, she reinvents Stay as a bonus track and it's very different and subtle yet a nice end to the album.

Very hard to pick favourite moments as this album is not made with 1 or 2 great songs then filler. It's filled with 13 great songs. You won't wanna miss any of them. Forced to pick some highlights I would say Serious which is a ballad and has stellar vocals, lead single Good Girl Down is funkstatic!, Look No Further is so different and you couldn't predict what Marcella or the music was going to do I just wanted to hit repeat straight away. Find The Good has a strong message. Practice What I Preach is also great and very funky.

If you've ever loved Marcella Detroit's music. I highly reccommend this album. Definately her strongest album alongside Jewel!
