The debut single for Josiah & The Greater Good is now here! “Real Mother Lover” is the first commercially released effort since Josiah released the Scoundrel EP in 2014 under his own name. So for all his fans in Knoxville, this has been a long-awaited moment, and for the world, we hope to convert you ;).
For more information, Knoxville Music Warehouse has done a wonderful job summing up the release:
“Real Mother Lover” is a chill party track, and the jazzy sax and tasteful background vocals from Tara Gideon and Ci Ci Teasley really set things off. The rapping third verse is a nice buildup and the sax solo at the end is the exclamation point.
It’s been a big month for Josiah & The Greater Good. They have new music coming out, they just played the Market Square Stage at The Dogwood Arts Festival, and they recently announced being added to the Bonnaroo lineup. Oh yeah, and they’re opening for Kansas at the newly minted Back Porch on the Creek at the end of this month!
Josiah enlisted a whole squad of talented musicians for this song like Danny Brown on keys, Brandon Bowman on sax, and Frank Sheadrick Jr. on bass. It also features rapper Dylan Moore lending his talents in the third verse. You can find more info on Dylan, also a Knoxville native, on his website.
