Fatback Royalty: Aretha Franklin, The Queen Of Soul

At its roots, Fatback’s musical sensibilities lean heavily on funk and soul; a couple of pretty general terms that can conjure up many different ideas for many people. But on everyone’s Venn diagram, Aretha Franklin resides smack dab in the union of those two fantastic circles.

This Saturday 8/20, […]
