Rich...soulful... mellow with an urban edge. Tony Green's debut CD, 'Shine' is a fantastic introductory onto the R&B music scene. A melodious blend of Donny Hathaway, John Legend and KEM, this singer/songwriter from the heart of Detroit is mesmerizing. He sings of the ups and downs of love relationships on songs like 'Never Meant to Hurt You' and 'You Know, I Know It's Love'. His stirring tenor voice rings true on songs like 'Summer Love', 'Living Without You' and 'Fade Away'. His cover of 'Lately' is smooth and warms the soul. Green gets you up and moving on your feet to the rousing tempo of 'The Price You Pay', 'Let Me Take You Away' and 'Everything Must Change'. The title song 'Shine' gives you insight into how long this artist has been waiting for this moment which makes you ask yourself, 'Where has he been all this time'? He brings it home on the inspirational 'Hold On' as his gospel roots emerge and raw powerful emotions meld with simple piano accompaniment, proving from begining to end, that this CD has something for everyone.
