First Listen: Aloe Blacc helps bring Killiam Shakespeare "Home"

(February 28, 2018) Fast rising, Philly-based crew, Killiam Shakespeare, have been garnering a much deserved buzz ramped up in part by their presence on the star-studded, and Jazzy-Jeff helmed, Chasing Goosebumps project of last year.  They’re sure to get it humming louder and shine a light on their versatility to boot with the release of their heartwarming and impressive new track, “Take You Home” featuring The Man himself, singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc.

“Take You Home” is a fervent song of hope, musically extending a helping hand and sturdy shoulder to lean on for those wading in a sea of despair or believing they’re all alone through life’s most challenging seasons.

Killiam Shakespeare provides the perfect, beautifully lush soundscape for Aloe Blacc’s inspiring, Withers-like delivery. Blacc himself explains in the release for the song, “This is about the humanity we share with our fellow brothers and sisters, from friends helping friends to nations aiding nations. There is no shame in asking for assistance when you are truly in need.  And it is the duty of the able to look after those who are not. In the wake of recent tragic events the message of love and compassion rings ever stronger.”

Certainly fitting words and song for a world now with so many needing to feel the comforts of home.
