Press Release: AUDIO (Featuring Vince Broomfield)
“ Don’t Move A Muscle/Donna Lee” SJ521
Release Date: Monday 20th June 2011
Florida based recording artist Vince Broomfield first came to prominence through his 1987 release “Do You Really Want Me” which he recorded for the independent Mote label under the pseudonym of “Audio”. Do You Really Want Me went on to become a popular anthem with modern soul and rare groove aficionados alike. On the strength of the Mote 45 the acclaimed “Romantic” album was released in 1991 on John Anderson’s UK based Rare Groove Label. The album contained an extended version of “Do You Really Want Me” plus several other tracks that gained extensive club and radio play at the time.
A further limited edition 45 “Berries On The Vine” was released in 1994.
Vince is a multi-talented musician who also lists keyboards, piano and Saxophone amongst his performing repertoire. He continues to perform to this day as part of his sisters Dee Dee Wilde Band, alongside brothers Al, Benn and Eugene Broomfield. The entire Broomfield family have also been heavily involved with the recent Cool Millions project “Back For More” which features as a solo outing by Vince entitled “Sprinkle” a song he also co-wrote.
In 2009, Soul Junction records released a 45 single on Audio featuring two previously unissued tracks “Kisses Don’t Lie/I Can’t Take It” (SJ503).
A follow up album to the 45 release was always in the offing so finally in June 2011 the much anticipated “New Beginnings”album finally hit the streets.
The album contains eight previously unissued tracks, which Vince cut during the period of 1989 to 1995. All the tracks were written and performed by Vince with the exception of “All My Love” which features additional vocals by Rick Washington.
Vince was also joined on “She’s Gone” by his brother Ben who provided additional guitar work. Tracks such as “Rain, Rain Go Away”, “Just What The Doctor Ordered” and “I Need Your Kisses” received extensive radio airplay in the months that followed the albums release.
In April 2012 Vince returned with the sublime “Won’t Somebody/The Answers No” (SJ515) a totally brand new song that Vince wrote and produced only a couple of months before it’s initial release. “Wont Somebody” went on to become a very firm favourite during the summer of that year, thus inspiring Vince to return to the studio to record his current new release, “Don’t Move A Muscle/Donna Lee” (SJ521).
“Don’t Move A Muscle” will be released on Monday March 11th 2013 but you will be able to witness Vince perform the song live two days before when he makes his long overdue UK debut at the Prestatyn Soul Weekender at 4pm during the Saturday afternoon session in the Modern Room.
