Featured Album: Rahsaan Patterson shines on "Heroes & Gods"

The number seven has long had mystical and spiritual references. There are seven cosmic planes of consciousness, seven wonders of the world and the number seven represents divine abundance. Cycles of change and rebirth also tend to come in seven-year intervals. It is only fitting that Rahsaan Patterson’s seventh album as a leader, Heroes & Gods, is his boldest musical gift to the world yet. “This was the longest amount of time that I have ever allowed myself to make an album,” confesses Rahsaan. “This time I allowed myself the room to breathe and allow the music to tell me what I need to do.” The result is an enthralling collection of Rahsaan’s most organic, emotionally potent and sonically adventurous offering yet.

Rahsaan Patterson’s Shanachie debut, Heroes & Gods, is as much an intimate sonic diary as it is a love letter to his fans.  “A lot of the songs and even the title come from life and the lessons learned from what some might call failure. However, these experiences can be used as tools,” explains Rahsaan. “The wisdom gained can become a source of strength to fight against what the world has to offer, which is not always positive.”

The first single on Heroes & Gods is the glorious “Sent From Heaven” – which already became one of the most popular songs on SoulTracks this year.  

Heroes & Gods is a testament to Rahsaan Patterson’s staying power as a relevant artist whose music has not only grown with him but with his evolving fan base. “I have always felt my path is my path and when everything is aligned that is when it will be my time to shine brighter.” Heroes & Gods is a confirmation to the fact that Rahsaan Patterson’s time is now.
