ReCollect: Supernatural, Misty Oldland

SUPERNATURAL: Misty Oldlandmisty old landReleased on Columbia Records in 1994, Supernatural touched soul music fans worldwide. It came at a time when London Street Soul first emerged and bands like Jamiroquai had crossed over into the mainstream charts.Misty Oldlands voice is subtle, innocent and soulful, a surprising contrast to the groovy, funky musicality of it’s authentic production. With heavy influences of Jazz and Funk coupled with her traditional songwriting style, Misty and partner producer Joe Dworvoniak created something fresh, tender and ever-lasting.‘Got Me A Feeling’; A duet with a young Omar who was also ever present in the street soul scene of the 90’s.Signature release, the vibey; ‘A Fair Affair’ was all about female equality in relationships. Everyone heard on the track is female and she asked a gaggle of her girlfriends to provide backing vocals.Misty, an accomplished jazz pianist, was always intent on not compromising her self-confessed ‘human vibe’ sound for the sake of heavily produced affects. For this, paralleled with refusing to give the industry what it demanded at the time, and staying true to herself, her stories and her own distinct style, we salute her.Buy this album if you don’t have it and rediscover the wonder that is Misty Oldland.Track List:I Wrote You a Song A Fair Affair (Je T’aime) Got Me a Feeling Imprison Me Why Do I Trust You Caroline Kissing the Planet One World You Are the One Like I Need I Often Wonder Groove EternityMI-SOUL RATING 10/10
