"What The Funk?" is an album of classic authenticity, melding an incredible musical experience. The album was written and recorded over a two year period in (New York - Los Angeles - Atlanta - United Kingdom - Barbados - Nashville - Boston), featuring Stevie with a fabulous lineup of guest artists, vocalists and musicians.
Although titled What The Funk?, the album is not entirely comprised of funk tunes. Says Stevie, “The album is a mix of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Latin, Disco and Blues, with rock overtones woven throughout the tapestry of the tracks. Although this is me doin' my thing, me being me, the album pays homage to some of my inspirations and influences as a vocalist and drummer such as Clyde Stubblefield, Tower of Power, Al Green, Bobby Bland, Bootsy Collins and P-Funk, George Clinton, Funkadelic, Sly Stone, James Brown, Toots Thielemans, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and others. There is a little something here for everyone. You get the funk, and then some!"
With soulful vocals, deep drivin' bass, slick guitars, big~n~tight in your face horn sections, smooth Fender Rhodes, super-funky drums, Hammond B-3 organ, Clavinet, Arp and Moog synthesizers, the heavy guns on this new album fire with all barrels. Pop the disk in, turn up the volume, enjoy.
