Press Release: David Washington “Games/Ready For Your Love” SJ 522

Release Date: Monday April 29th 2013

https://soundcloud.com/chalkster/david-washington-soul-junction

David Washington is a multi talented singer, songwriter producer and musician (bass guitarist) who was one of the founding members along with Michael Powell of the legendary Detroit Group Chapter 8. Chapter 8 went on to recorded three highly acclaimed albums for major labels Ariola (1979) entitled “Chapter 8”. The “This Love’s For Real” Beverley Glenn (1985) and the “Forever “ album Capitol (1988) these albums and their subsequent 45 and12” singles secured Chapter 8 a cult following not only in Europe but Japan where they toured for 6 months at a time for 3 consecutive years.

David Washington was also responsible for discovering Anita Baker whom he first heard singing with another local Detroit band “The Osmoses”. Following brief spells with female lead singers Carolyn Crawford and Barbara Love, Chapter 8 in 1978 were again in need of a new female vocalist and Baker fitted the bill. But Baker was to leave following the group being dropped by Ariola. When Anita Baker embarked on a solo career she did so under the tutelage of producer Michael Powell who enlisted David and other former Chapter 8 members to record on the Baker sessions, they also found success with Regina Bell, RJ’s latest Arrival, Marissa Rose and David Peaston, amongst others.

David Washington has also worked and travelled the world with the likes of the Detroit Emeralds, The Fantastic Four, Joe Simon, Sam and Dave and The Dells whom Chapter 8 backed on their Detroit and national concerts. This opportunity came about through Tin Alison as he was the cousin of Marvin Junior the Dells baritone lead singer.

Also, David, along with fellow Detroit musician Donny Lyle formed another group known as Quazer who also established a firm fan base in Japan. At one point Quazer looked to be close to signing a recording deal with CBS/Sony before a difference of opinion caused the group to split. Additionally, in 1999 David toured Europe with the British gospel singer Lavine Hudson.

David then turned his back on the road life of a professional musician. Firstly, he operated his own pest control business before entering college where he attained a degree in information technology. David went on to work as a network specialist with his wife, Jeannine, in Japan that was until the tsunami hit. Upon his return to his native Detroit David rediscovered the urge to perform and record music once again, his first effort being a solo rework of the Chapter 8 classic “Ready For Your Love”, which we at Soul Junction records have since picked up for release along with David’s own brand new interpretation of the song “Games” which David previously wrote for former Fee recording artist, Jimmy Scott.

With the amount of threads already pitched on this 45 - one would think soul junction was the 4th emergency service or some sort of organisation to assist people in despair.  

 

Soul Junction - ah a soul music samaritan who's inhabitants are identical and members are unchanged.

 

Not a bad thing then - good luck with this better release offering.

 

:yes:

Well Nick

One of the many joys of owing a record label is the amount of free advise you recieve from armchair critic's :yes:

 

ie "you don't do enough promotion"  and in your case "We do to much" promotion :g:

 

But hey keep up the goodwork as the old saying goes "there's no such thing as bad publicity , cheers :thumbsup:  :hatsoff2:

 

Have a nice day

Looking forward to getting one of these. Both sides played at Yarmouth the other week. Was good to dance to the A side in one room early in the morning, then sit and soak up the B side in the other room the next afternoon! :yes:

 

So remind me again how us mere mortals get our mitts on these before official release dates?! :D

Hi Andy as you can hear in David's interview unless your a young buck hip hop artist on a major label there's nothing happening for you stateside. That's why the work not only our selves (Soul Junction) but other labels, Kent, Daptone, Numero, Timion  etc etc do should be supported wholeheartedly by genuine soul fans throughout the world. The obituary columns are growing longer and the material is getting harder to find in a physical format so the future is gonna be in the release of previously unissued masters, again for as long as they are obtainable.

Yes Andy

"Games" is proving to be a popular choice with our Scottish Brothers and Sisters, so by the time the "True Soul Weekender arrives it should be regarded as a anthem. Better keep a copy back for Jocko (I'll get back to you later  :tumbleweed3:  :tumbleweed3:  :tumbleweed3:  :yes: ) O'Connor before it sells out :lol:
