First Listen: Audrey Wheeler is "Dancing Under The Influence"

(August 18, 2018) Audrey Wheeler is simply too great a singer to not be a household name. But, while not all music fans know her name, they have certainly heard her work over three decades. She sang lead on the Unlimited Touch hit “Searching To Find The One,” as well as Jeff Lorber’s “Step By Step.” And she supported a countless number of other performers over the years, ranging from Chaka Khan to Freddie Jackson.

When songwriter and producer James Day arrived on the scene over a decade ago, Audrey Wheeler was one of the first artists he tapped to perform his compositions, and she won us over right away with the brilliant “Brick By Brick.” Audrey has performed regularly on James’ albums since then, and that includes his current two part celebration of dance music Groove Nights (Vols 1 and 2).

The latest collaboration is “DUI (Dancing Under The Influence),” which has three different mixes, all of which will take you right to the dance floor. Audrey – who is also Mrs. Will Downing – sounds fantastic as usual, and lifts the song into an instant favorite.
