The Chairmen of the Board "Reach Out" with hot remix

We’ve been fans of the legendary act the Chairmen of the Board for a half century, and they are still going strong under the leadership of longtime group member Ken Knox. Ken kept the group alive after the 2010 death of General Johnson and the subsequent death of member Danny Woods, and continued to record songs that are true to the group’s past, even as he paves a new way forward.

A few years ago, Ken reformed the group with new members Thomas Hunter and Brandon Stevens. And they shocked much of the R&B world in 2017 with the brilliant, richly produced Words Left Unsaid, one of the year’s finest soul albums and a throwback to the classic Philly Soul sounds of the 1970s.

Now Ken, Thomas and Brandon have a new single that is out in a whopping seven mixes that take a tune that Ken and Thomas wrote in 2015 in a hot new direction.

We’re featuring the Wheeler del Torro-produced, Doug Gomez remix of “Reach Out” as our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check out this dance gem below and welcome The Chairmen of the Board back to SoulTracks.
