First Listen: Stan Mosley takes us on a "Sentimental Journey"

(September 29, 2018) Stan Mosley is the kind of artist who has music so ingrained in his body and soul that he remains in the business no matter what misfortunes and disappointments the music gods concoct. The gravelly voiced singer with a muscular baritone that can move into high tenor and falsetto range, is a native of Chicago who started singing professionally in the early 1970s. However, it would be more than 20 years before  Mosley got a chance to cut his first album. “At some point and time, I have either opened or performed in the same venue as just about every major soul or blues act in the business,” Mosley recalled.

However, the harshness of the business for soul, blues and southern soul vocalists led a frustrated Mosley to leave the business in the mid 1980s. He returned in the early 1990s and cut several albums for several blues and southern soul labels throughout the 1990s and 2000s.
