R.I.P. Southern Soul star Larome Powers

(June 17, 2020) He became a Southern Soul star late in life, but music was part of his existence forever. Today we say a sad goodbye to singer, songwriter and musician Larome Powers. He was 67.

Powers first made his mark as part of the Detroit soul music scene in the 70s, often working with legendary producer Don Davis. He continued his ascent working with artists such as Joe Tex and Millie Jackson, and became known as both a top notch soul music writer and musician.

Powers moved to the front as a performer in the new millennium, issuing three albums between 2003 and 2014 that became hits on the blues and Southern Soul charts, with the latter two (What’s Life Without Love and Stepping Out) being released on the popular Malaco label. His hits included “Knockin’,” “Shake and Shimmy,” and “I Feel Like Cheatin’.”

Powers is another of the many talented artists who, over the past five decades, have helped establish the many shade of soul music. He will be missed.
