Who are his contemporaries in music?


Most pale in comparison to Mr Withers. There are some artist like Anthony Hamilton that comes to mind. I have so many wonderful memories growing up listening to his music. This was an excellent documentary on bill Withers and soul music that's not being heard by a younger generation. At the end of the film when he sings with his daughter it's as if he's passing the torch to another generation. I was happy and sad at the same time because this type of music isn't being made like it use to. But I guess what is.

Check out Aloe Blacc, he is doing some decent soul music.

Thank you for replying and for the recommendation of this artist. I had never heard of him. I guess a sign of me getting old! lol Aloe Blacc does have that classic soulful sound of yesteryear. Thanks again.
