First Listen: Darryl Perry gets "Inside of Your Love"

(March 25, 2019) The press release for Darryl Perry’s ballad “Inside of Your Love” states that he possesses a voice that belies his 25 years. Well, I thought, I’ll be the judge of that. Look, 25 is ancient in contemporary R&B, and sounding much older than that might not be something you want to advertise, even if it’s true. And in the case of Darryl Perry, it is definitely true. From the first “ah” and vocalized hum, it becomes clear that Perry possesses a rich, powerful and resonate baritone that will remind many of SoulTracks favorites such as Will Downing.

That’s high praise and Perry earns those accolades on this quiet storm throwback jam. This cut is mature in every way. The track is sensual without sliding into show too much musical voyeurism. Lyrically, “Inside of Your Love” bring new appreciation the old school virtue of allowing the imagination to run wild. The track sports and arrangement that combines a romantic yet funky bass line with jazz infused piano. Radio should not sleep on this. Check it out here.
