Friend to GFM Tim Dillinger has just released a track that to my ears will serve as the perfect lead-in to his soon to be released album The Baton:1985. “Say Thank You” feat. B. Slade is matching the heat that I feel while being out and about here in VA and that’s a good thing. The track simply grooves and the melodic and harmonic content are the icing on the cake. This is my type of Gospel, 2013 Gospel where we understand that even though the music may have changed the message is timeless. Whether you’re going through or just on the other side this is some music you need to ride to this Summer. Press play.
