New Music from vocalist and songwriter Kori Withers, daughter of soul singer/songwriter Bill Withers…

We’re thrilled to announce a continuing legacy that’s among us here at GFM. Bill Withers took soul music in a radically introspective direction in the early ’70s, reviving the storytelling of blues from a socially conscious perspective. Most of our Grown Folks can sing the lyrics to his biggest songs from the ’70s and ’80s, including “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Grandma’s Hands,” “Lean On Me,” “Use Me,” “Lovely Day” and “Just the Two of Us.”

But what else do we know about Mr. Withers? He has created a talented musical offspring. Daughter Kori Withers takes her legacy head on with her new single, an interpretation of her father’s classic record “Ain’t No Sunshine.” The track is well-noted for it’s acoustic warmth and mellow vibe. But Kori takes an approach that is different, yet very intriguing. Check out this cover #Growns, give us y’all feedback.
