Eugene Cole Feat. Felton Pilate [2021] - Why Are You Holding Back [Jerningham Entertainment Group]

The best track I've heard since the current SoulStrutter Selection of the Week from Allana RoyaleEugene Cole (aka Gene-O) teams up with Felton Pilate (Con Funk Shun) for a superb new soulful single "Why Are You Holding Back". 

It is little wonder as he is from a gospel background and states his influences growing up were Luther Vandross, Phil Perry (who must be one of my favourite male artists), Jeffery Osbourne as well as Patti Labelle (who's a bit too 'screechy' for me) and he also states Celine Dion, four out five ain't bad I suppose! (I'm sorry but Dion has never done anything for me).

He recorded his first solo album "What About Forever" in 2007 but it was never released  as the label folded but it gained release in 2013.

I've added a few more tracks as this guys voice should be heard if you're not already familiar with it. If you go looking for his music then prior to about 2016 he was known as Gene-o which is listed separately on DSPs (I've included a row of separate icons below).
