 From the Kamilaroi nation of Australia and the South Pacific nation of Tonga comes Radical Son. A strong man with a stronger stage presence and a voice that at once seduces the soul and punches the heart.He’s been making music for the people for ten years but it is this album that will deliver to Australia its first big black soul Man.

 

A defining album, Cause ‘n Affect takes the listener on a sonic journey of contemplation providing thought provoking content and insightful message. It is soul, dub and classic R’n’B with reggae-esque influences, hip-hop sensibilities and all ‘round great grooves. It appeals to those with a penchant for the likes of Fat Freddy’s Drop, Amy Winehouse, Aloe Blacc and dare we say it, Messrs Gaye, Cook and White.

 

Featuring spoken word by Archie Roach and Maupower, backing vocals from three extraordinary singers Emma Donovan, Deline Briscoe and Crystal Mercy, Cause ‘n Affect is produced byMercury award winning producer Wayne ‘Lotek’ Bennett (Roots Manuva, Speech Debelle). The Radical Son band weave between intricate grooves embedded with classic tones’ and incorporate eclectic samples and scratching that makes this an outstanding album release with broad appeal.

 

From hip-hop roots to soulful social statements, Cause ‘n Affect conjures uncompromising visions and merciless lyrics of where we’ve come from and what could be. After an incredible transformational life journey; one that every man can relate to, yet would never chose to go through, Radical Son re-emerges to take his place on the contemporary stage. http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/radical-sons-hard-lessons-strike-a-musical-note-20140706-zsxtv.html

SNAPSHOT BIOGRAPHY

Radical Son’s musical story starts with Steve Balbi from Noiseworks.

Steve was working at the Settlement in Redfern on an album with community.

Radical had driven his girlfriend’s sister to her recording at Steve’s house in St Ives where he delivered a spoken word he had written called Black Baptism. Steve enjoyed it and invited Radical down to the studio Green Dragon. He and his music partner worked with Radical to produce a number of tracks after that. He was 24 years old and since that time has released two EPs; Self-Titled in 2005 and Black Stone in 2008. For more info please go to: http://www.reverbnation.com/artist_3398786/bio
