A man pretending to be a woman pretending to be a man! Preposterous!!
First, I am truly biased. I have always been a huge Jason Walker fan!! I, like many others before me, thought it was a woman when I first heard his voice (think male Kristine W) but this big black diva voice comes out of a skinny little boy from Pennsylvania!
However, having just gotten a copy of his new CD "Flexible", I have a new obsession!!
His first CD "This Is My Life" was amazing and spawned 3 #1 Billboard Club hits including "My Life" which was voted best gay pride anthem of that year by HX Magazine.
This new CD finds Jason once again working with Junior Vasquez (as it's released on his label JVM) and also Quentin Harris as well. But it's the disc's title track "Flexible" that really caught my ear. Anyone who's very familiar with Junior's music will know what I mean when I say that this song is VERY Twilo. It uses alot of his old Twilo tricks and loops and makes the song a total standout.
"Can't Get You Off My Mind" is the lead single of this CD and for a visual you can check out the video for it on You Tube which was done by Karl Giant with makeup by my best friend Christopher Milone!
And "Foolish Lover I'm Sorry" is an awesomely aggresive electroclash track which finds Jason apologizing..."Baby I'm sorry. I never meant to hurt you. It's just that it was rough, you know? Maybe we weren't together at the right time. Maybe one day we will be...and I'm sorry." and continues from there...
Of course, that's to say nothing of Jason's incredible vocals! I highly reccommend you go to iTunes right now and buy this CD. You will NOT be disappointed.
But just for a taste...
