First Listen: Whitfield Batson is "Feeling the Love"

(February 20, 2019) Whitfield Batson spent much of his early years moving between Paddington, West London, where he was born, and Barbados, the place where his mother’s family lived. He went to Barbados at three and returned to London as a teenager. Music was a constant in both places. Batson’s uncles influenced his musical tastes while he was living in Barbados, and he immersed himself in London’s musical scene upon returning to the place of his birth.

Batson formed a singing group with some high school friends after he returned London and enrolled in college where he trained to become certified in audio engineering. Batson spent the bulk of career working as an engineer, producer, manager and even a songwriter, but now has emerged to take his place behind the microphone. Batson released two songs that charted on the UK soul chart in 2018, and now he hopes to continue that success with the ballad “Feeling the Love,” a track that Batson endows with that old school vibe due to his rangy baritone and the 1970s styled backing vocals.

The song’s message of unrestrained love and remaining together through the ups and downs also serves throwback to perhaps a more innocent and idealistic time. Check it out here.
