First Listen: Hil St. Soul and Noel Gourdin are "Blessed"

(July 9, 2021) Strong and sweet collaborations like this one are a real cause for celebration here at SoulTracks. Longtime British neo-soulstress Hil St Soul (aka Hilary Mwelwa) and Boston-born deep R&B purveyor Noel Gourdin have teamed up for the pure and unassuming midtempo “Blessed.”

The assuaging deliveries of both vocalists merge seamlessly on this confirmation of mutual love and commitment that brings together the strengths of Mwelwa and Gourdin in a subtle fashion effortlessly, spurring repeated listens. The duo’s collective four decades of tastemaking with socially conscious and thought-provoking soul fare need no explanation, as they organically trade lines and complement each other’s vibes on a sophisticated, cool groove that provides a welcome respite from everyday stress and unnecessary distractions.
