Quinn Soular has released his 3rd official single “Ovah & Ovah” which is a summer banger featuring guest vocals from Dutch-Caribbean Reggae superstar Ziggi Recado. Born on the Island of St. Maarten, Quincy Adolphin aka Quinn Soular is a Pop and R&B singer-songwriter who has his own music production company, QP (The Quinn Productions). If you’re a fan or just a longtime R&B historian in general, you probably know that some of the game’s most renowned voices were cultivated in choir stands and churchyards. Sure, R&B’s secular content often clashes with the gospel’s divine intent but the similarities are unmistakable. The storytelling, delivery and, most importantly, the heartfelt passion, go hand-in-hand. So it’s no surprise that with the full support of his parents Quinn also began playing in the church from an early age.
Quinn Soular has been pricking the ears of R&B critics since his previous critically acclaimed releases, both of which built upon his musical roots. “Ovah & Ovah” keeps the momentum rolling – and is an assurance that the new breed of Urban music can bring more to the table than hollow commercial trickery. Artistically, he showcases the utmost potential, never missing the mark. Vocally, Quinn delivers a balanced, complete performance, never under- nor over-singing. There’s great intensity, confidence and presence from the artist here.
The beautiful choral vocals amplify the record to the ninth degree, blurring the lines between urban contemporary and a reggae flavored groove. Ziggi Recado adds the final touch to authenticate the sound with his keen Caribbean vocal twist.
It’s not a recording of epically sweeping gestures, but rather full of elevating moments, nuance and detail, as the thematic and musical threads coalesce. Riding on funky bassline song builds toward a spinning chorus that acts as a kind of comforting echo chamber.
It’s one of many beautiful moments drawn from a simple and direct sentiment, and typical of how Quinn Soular is both impressionistic and insightful. The track is a summation of themes that strike at the core of who Quinn is: a multi-talented individual.
Every artist is trying to strike that ever delicate balance between creating their own distinct sound while avoiding creating a boring, repetitive sound. Many come close before falling off of that tightrope and into oblivion. Creating a successfully captivating sound is a steep climb. The hike requires preparation, care, caution and an exorbitant amount of talent and energy.
All of which Quinn has an abundance of. Moreover he has a voice that can melt a heart like butter — he could sing anything and make it sound captivating. Ziggi Recado’s feature on the track plays an integral role in the song’s flow and thematic significance, supplying a much needed rhyming deviation before the song switches towards a crescendo of harmonies.
With its dynamic production, elegant lyrics, and effortless singing, this is a real treat for urban music fans. With the release of “Ovah & Ovah”, Quinn Soular builds on the foundation laid by his previous single projects, to create an exceptional work of art that he can be proud of.
