Mississippi born, Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Maurice Smith has a feel for classic soul, and he fed that love through his work with artists like Sy Smith, Tony Toni Tone, Seal and Beyonce. While Maurice claims artists like Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye as influences, one can hear an awful lot of Curtis Mayfield meets James Brown in his music. And that goes for his brand new single, the hot, horn-filled “Can’t Fight The Feeling.” If you are a lover of Southern & Northern Soul with a Chicago Funk twist, you’re going to love this cut. “ I really think Maurice Nailed this record and gives a great funky soul punch that can be heard on the dance floors nationwide,” says by Marvyn Mack. President of Soulside Productions.
