Felton Pilate: "Nothing But Love Spoken Here"

Felton Pilate Soulful crooner Felton Pilate has been wowing audiences for decades as the lead vocalist for R&B funksters, ConFunkShun. His silky falsetto highlights quiet storm slow jams the likes of "Straight From The Heart,"" "(Let me Put) Love On Your Mind," "All Up To You," and "Baby I'm Hooked ( Right Into Your Love)."

With the debut release of his solo CD "Nothing But Love Spoken Here," on Escapi Urban Music, Pilate presents listeners with a 10 song set of pure unadulterated tributes to the emotion known as love. Lush signature arrangements provide the melodic backdrops to songs that evoke sensual "ear- rotic" desires of the heart. Warm, sweet and intimate, "Nothing But Love Spoken Here" is the backdrop for an evening of romance.

From the onset title track, "Nothing But Love Spoken Here" Pilate whisks us away on a seductive voyage of love induced wonder. Providing all the production, songwriting, most of the vocals and instrumental tracks, Pilates sets forth a showmanship of skill. Titles like "Leading Different Lives" flow melancholy and forlorn, while "Devotion" rings with intense passion. "In Time" sways with the fervor of strong yearning but when A Taste of Honey's Janice Marie Johnson duets with him on "Only For You" the sentiment of love rocks sweetest. And on "Keepin' You To Your Promise" originally penned for the Stylistics, Pilate simply soars.

Pilate continues to tour with ConFunkShun. With a background that includes, per his production efforts for M.C. Hammer, record sells in the millions and a slew of awards, he was recently selected as one of the celebrity judges for the new online music network, American Idol Underground. This one-of-a-kind event offers the opportunity for independent artists to have their music reviewed by Internet listeners as well as the celebrity judges, providing a platform to reach the masses like only American Idol can.

Having experienced the recent drama of Hurricane Rita, in his home of Houston, TX, Pilate has also launched the non-profit, Singing4TheSouth, a karoke-kommunity, Katrina relief-aid fund raising entity to benefit the American Red Cross, MusicCares, and other charities. In fact, a portion of his CD sales proceeds of "Nothing But Love Spoken Here" derived either from www.CDBaby.com or from www.FeltonPilate.com will go directly to Singing4TheSouth.

"Though I had to evacuate, I still feel like the lucky one. Katrina equals pain, and music equals love. The challenge is on, and love is gonna win!" affirms Pilate.

"Nothng But Love Spoken Here" is a wonderful offering from an artist whose career has been a reflection of love. With nothing but love being spoken, Pilate certainly makes us want to listen!

Bio - Felton Pilate

Felton Pilate Felton Pilate, longtime lead vox for Mercury/PolyGram's ConFunkShun, steps out with a fantastic solo LP entitled, "Nothing But Love Spoken Here". With his flair for the pop-AC flavored bump and grind goodies, Pilate really lets loose with this 10-song set of slow to mid-tempo love anthems. Unlike many R&B ballad offerings, it is more about love than simply lust.

The album title cut is a riveting soul scorcher, a truelove tale of sensuous melodic power. His signature lush arrangements are consistent song after song, but "In Time" has a patient chorus of flowing grandeur. "Leading Different Lives", a melancholy story about forlorn regrets, has movie-theme quality. Pilate's silky falsetto is given free reign and soars throughout - with a delightful showing in "Keepin' You To Your Promise" - originally penned by Pilate for The Stylistics; they recorded it as a Pilate/Preston Glass co-production, but Pilate proves very capable in his rendition as well. A Taste Of Honey's Janice Marie Johnson duets with him on "Only For You" about that elusive quality, devotion. Providing all the production, songwriting, most of the vocals and instrumental tracks, Pilate exquisitely demonstrates his many talents in the recording booth and at the mixing console, too. On the whole, this LP is truly a confession of love on many gone good - gone mad levels - all intimate - Nothing But...Love Spoken Here.

Originally, Pilate exploded into the national spotlight with ConFunkShun with a formidable run of ten huge records including one Platinum and four consecutive Gold albums. Their 20 hit singles included 8 Top Ten R&B Hits and one #1 R&B smash. Alongside blistering dance workouts like "Chase Me", "Ms. Got-The-Body", and Ffun are their quiet storm/slow-jams for which Pilate is noted. Classic fav's such as, "Straight From The Heart", "(Let Me Put) Love On Your Mind", "All Up To You", and "Baby I'm Hooked (Right Into Your Love)" whet the appetite for this new LP. These Pilate vocal hits remain on radio play lists while ConFunkShun continues to churn out concert dates year after year. Pilate and ConFunkShun really sparkles on TV events like "Sinbad's HBO Soul Music Special," "Motown Live" and "Vibe." Recent LP releases include "The Best Of Con Funk Shun Vol. 1 & 2", "Live For Ya A**" - the Live LP, "The Ballads Collection", and the re-release of the Gold LP, "Secrets" on CD, and "Greatest Hits" among others.

Pilate is just as well known for his production/writing with rap phenom "M.C. Hammer". The Hammer-Pilate joint effort staggers the imagination with sales from '89 to '92 alone of 30 million, including "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em", the #2 all-time selling R&B LP. The awards, such as Grammies, M-TV, American Music, Billboard, and Soul Train, among others, lauded on his mix-magic with Hammer are too numerous to mention. He also doubled as Musical Director for Hammer's record breaking 250-date world tour which included the Earth, Wind and Fire horn section, and over 40 musicians, singers, dancers, & rappers...Other landmarks in Pilate's Capitol Records days include his film and TV soundtrack work such as his Oscar-nominated "Addams Groove" (Addams Family Movie theme) and Hammerman (Hammerman cartoon show). Pilate also has production/writing credits with the California State Lottery radio and TV campaign slogan "I Feel Like The Lucky One". His influence reverbs on countless samples like the D-Shot/Jive Records single, "Huckleberry", featured on the GOLD Columbia Pictures soundtrack, "Booty Call" and the DOUBLE PLATINUM "Gang Related" soundtrack cut "A Change Is Gonna Come", by J. Flexx. The recent eponymous PLATINUM debut LP, Dru Hill, with Pilate's re-vibed Con Funk Shun classic, "Love's Train", produced by Keith Sweat demonstrates how his music has crossed over to Generation Next. "Love Therapy", is the title track he produced/wrote on the new Lenny Williams LP. Most recently, he produced a cut, "Tell Me" on Evander Hollyfield's Real Deal Records' new male vocal act, Four Shades. True to his calling, Pilate emotes love's many facets, song after song, whether as producer, writer or artist. "Nothing But Love Spoken Here" fits in the Pilate mold and keeps on proving that his style and message are, indeed, universal and timeless...

CD Review - "Nothing But Love Spoken Here"

Felton Pilate Felton Pilate, the front man for the legendary R&B/funk band, Con Funk Shun, and Grammy-nominated producer of the top selling rap album of all time, M.C. Hammer's "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em", has struck out on his own with his first solo project, "Nothing But Love Spoken Here." The CD is a collection of pure love songs, featuring his signature silky, soulful voice heard on so many CFS classics, such as "Straight from the Heart" and "Baby, I'm Hooked".

"Nothing But Love Spoken Here" offers the kind of romance soundtrack that is reminiscent of the back-in-the-day slow dance, while it remains fresh and contemporary in its delivery. This CD showcases not only the many facets of relationships, but Felton's considerable songwriting and musical talents as well.

He takes us through a range of emotions, from the title cut, an open invitation to love and lovemaking, to the lushly vocalized "In Time", a plaint of love gone wrong. Originally penned for the Stylistics, "Keepin' You To Your Promise" is a classic ballad with an old school flavor, sung in sweet falsetto. The up-tempo, and downright peppy, "Yours For Life" is a bright, happy number; contrasted by "Watch You", with its sensual, smoky pulse and heart-throbbing bass line. "Different Lives" tells of erstwhile lovers who once again cross paths and wonder what could have been, and while very strong conceptually, the vocals seemed not quite in sync with the strength of the story.

Felton teams up with Janice-Marie Johnson (A Taste of Honey) on "Only For You", resulting in a duet wherein the voices blend beautifully and flow like wild honey. "Always Come Back To You" is an earthy, relaxed ballad rendered in stunning simplicity, declarative of a similar sentiment as in "Devotion", another of the melodious and highly listenable cuts on the CD. A little incongruous and over the top were the three different dance remixes of the title track, which appeared to be a gratuitous afterthought and a somewhat startling departure from the mellow mood already firmly established. Overall it's a winner; a must-have CD for lovers....
