Will Sessions have established themselves as one of Detroit’s must-see live bands, with a varied musical output that reflects their city’s roots.
In addition to their own work, the group is known for collaborations with the likes of Amp Fiddler, Mayer Hawthorne, Slum Village, Elzhi, Black Milk, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, Eminem and Slaughter House, KRS-One, Danny Brown, DJ Dez/Andrez, Jeremy Ellis, Wendell Harrison, Toots & the Maytals, and Griz.
On April 21st, Will Sessions released, Deluxe, their debut LP of original material, made up of tracks only previously available as limited 7″ records, all of which have been remixed and remastered.
The album contains guest appearances from Detroit legends Allan Barnes (The Blackbyrds), Amp Fiddler (Parliament/Funkadelic), Florida’s ‘King of Funk’ Rickey Calloway, and relative newcomer Coko (Funk Night Records). Deluxe is packed with songs reminiscent of classic soul and funk, deep breaks, tight rhythm tracks, blazing horns and raw vocal performances.
Taken from this album comes the tremendously funky and enormously soulful sounds of Run, Don’t Walk Away, featuring the powerful voice of guest vocalist Coko. This song certainly wouldn’t sound at all out-of-place on a Funkadelic album and should be playing loud out of your speakers right now! Check it out above.
