NYC-based Doo Wop ‘n’ Soul Singer/Songwriter Jonny Benavidez – backed by the legendary Finnish backline Cold Diamond & Mink (Bobby Oroza, Pratt & Moody, Jeb Loy Nichols) – has released his new single My Echo, Shadow and Me.
The name alone – Cold Diamond & Mink – should indicate the soulfulness of this record before you press play or drop the needle, and they never disappoint. Taken from his forthcoming debut LP, the Chicano Soul Brother serves as an ode to timeless soul music.
This fresh serving of mellow goodness floats with horns and harmonies, as well as funky guitar chords, drum licks and Jonny Benavidez’s sweet vocal tone. The band’s talented performance and retro soul vibes add to the emotional tale of his search for love. This timeless piece will make you nostalgic for a past where style and elegance were standard.
After his debut single, Tell Me That You Love Me, Jonny Benavidez released the dance floor twister Let’s Get Together (2018), which delivered a positive message over a northern soul rhythm.
Released in collaboration with the iconic Finnish soul label Timmion Records, My Echo, Shadow and Me is available on 45. The full album is out June 23rd 2023, also on vinyl.
This single reveals that the album is an absolute must-listen.
