First Listen: Noel McKoy Needs a “Love Under Control”

London-born Noel McKoy has made a name for himself over the past three decades with dedicated soul listeners via both his solo work and guest spots with established international acts. His credits include songwriting for the likes of Jaki Graham, singing with The Pasadenas, and serving on both fronts as part of The British Collective with Junior, Don-E, Leee John, and Omar.

Gearing up for the release of his fifth album, People Make Change, McKoy offers the slow-grooving “Love Under Control” as the first taste of his newest musical venture. Melding influences of reggae and classic soul with sophisticated phrasing and an assured melodic structure, he funnels a passion for commitment, depth, and patience via a convincing lead delivery and stylish backing arrangements. Take a First Listen to the downtempo jam below and let us know your thoughts!
