Ten years ago, Res hit us with her solo debut How I Do—a seminal album, which was far ahead of its time when it was released! The past year and a half, we have seen her in the group Idle Warship with Talib Kweli, and she also released her second album, Black.Girls.Rock. independently. Now on the verge of hitting us with some amazing music this year, Muphoric Sounds was able to catch Res live at Nona Hendryx‘s monthly “Unfiltered Music” series at SOB‘s, March 25, 2010. After seeing her live, we were blown away by how beautiful Res‘s voice is. In a way, the production of her debut album down played her vocal ability. This woman can truly SING! Her rich bravado is reminiscent of the legendary Stevie Nicks, then add a little soul, gives Res a unique and forever fresh vocal style.
Check out the interview below, which documents the event and showcases Res in action; a very cool woman. Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it! For Vimeo users, you can view the video here.
