Toussaint

Blue Note, Sets @ 12:30am ~ LATE NIGHT GROOVE SERIES

TOUSSAINT ~ Toussaint the Liberator: Defender of the Roots, Protector of the Soul. With a deep, penetrating voice, Toussaint’s husky tenor can fill a room and spill out onto the streets. Asked to join Soulive in 2006 as the band’s lead singer, he penned all the lyrics for the group’s acclaimed album, No Place Like Soul (2007). This venture found Toussaint traveling the world over, performing with such notable artists as the late Isaac Hayes, the Rolling Stones, John Mayer, and The Dave Matthews Band.

The last few years have found Toussaint continuing to shine brightly. His collaboration with I Grade Records spawned his genre-defying, soul-lifting debut album, Black Gold (2010). 2011 produced the mixtape African Soul Exchange with Relic Secure and Secure Dem Sound. His latest effort, Where I Lead, dropped in April of this year.
