Veteran soul singer Gloria Scott has signed to the UK’s Acid Jazz Records.
The singer who was discovered by Sly Stone, went on to become a backing singer for Tina Turner as a member of The Ikettes and worked with Barry White.
Gloria’s debut release for Acid Jazz is a cover of the Gospel-House tune ‘Promised Land’. The original written and recorded by Joe Smooth and released in 1987, is an all time classic. Gloria’s version is pure soul, it still has a driving 4/4 house beat coupled with her amazing vocal and a fantastic arrangement. This will go down well in Soulful House and Soul sets alike. A great version, breathing new life into an old classic!
