World Premiere: Sam Huber wants to "Be With You"

(November 5, 2021) Sam Huber’s journey into soul and funk music began with him hearing the music of Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder. Huber recalls hearing Stevie’s Songs in the Key of Life album and hearing the Franklin’s “Baby I Love You,” and he was pretty much in. Huber said that he knew he wanted to make music even before hearing those two music legends, but hearing their music gave his desire even more focus. The only thing that might be surprising about Huber’s origin story is that it happened in Finland. Well, we know that soul music travels far and wide and always find welcoming ears in every locale.

Huber has been putting down the soul and funk music for a while, and his latest effort is the funky ballad titled “Be With You.” The single is the first release from his upcoming funk album called Down that drops on December 3. The single is a part of a unique two album release taking place in the fall that finds Huber releasing another album called Up in mid-November.

“Be With You” is on the album Down, and it’s easy to see why after Huber explains the distinction between the two, noting that Down about getting down, either on the dance floor or on the song’s bumping downbeat. And “Be With You” digs deep into the groove with a bumping bass line and kicking drums providing the foundation for the kind of harmonic and synchronized horn work that groups like Tower of Power gave us (and continue to give us).

The song’s subject matter is also about getting down to the facts about how he feels about a lady that he is eyeing. The song finds him dismissing all pretense and making his pitch. Check out “Be With You,” here.
