Groove (Neo-Soul) Music History

woman red swirlWell, Sech may have made up the name Groove Music and specifically, “Groove Music for Lifemates” —   but it was conceived out of the sweet, smooth side of Soul Music with one thing in mind.

Soul Ballads from Aretha Franklin like “Givin’ Him Something He Can Feel,” James Brown, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Tina Turner, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Barry White, Stevie Wonder, Sly Stone, Chaka Kahn —

and so many more were the impetus for Sech, with the help of composer-producer Sherese Timeless, to create Groove Music for Lifemates.

While R&B captured the exuberance of Gospel, Soul drilled down to Gospel’s emotional essence.  There was too much to be said beyond spiritual

topics — the proclaiming emotion of independence and the sensual emotion of love — all possible if you’re still standing on the giant shoulders of the Blues.

From a cultural view that celebrates sensuality, fertility, while striving for faithful love, Soul gave us intimate songs to sing to our love with the chase over, consent given, content in the familiar.  From this well of inspiration, Sech wanted to expand the repertoire of songs for Lifemates in the Groove.
