15-Dec-2019 | Shake well- New 45
Out now on Shakewell Records
WILL work 4 Funk, together with Shakewell Records, have given us another festive treat.
It's a single, "Playafool" by six piece US outfit Shakewell.
There was nothing unlucky about this 7" being released in Friday 13th!
Far from it, it's a delight for fans of funk, soul and rock 'n' roll.
Jordan Smith, vocalist and bassist with Shakewell, wrote the words behind "Playafool".
It's definitely Mayer Hawthorne-esque, soul hip with a slight lean towards a vintage vibe.
The band is something of a funk brotherhood, made up of lifelong friends and collaborators with a shared live if groove and songwriting.
With tasty horns and smooth vocals, this track is sure to have you spinning it on repeat.
Shakewell has shared the stage with the likes of The New Mastersounds, Snarky Puppy, Galactic, the Wailers and Dumpstaphunk to name but a few, which tells you all you need to know about their credentials.
They are on a mission to broaden their fan base and leave no dancefloor unshaken.
With "Playafool" they are well on their way to achieving their goals!
