soulhead.com Launches Slept On Soul by Michael A Gonzales
Monthly Column Debuts July 1
(JUNE 30, 2014) NEW YORK - Respected music critic and journalist Michael A. Gonzales will launch a new column, Slept on Soul, July 1 on the popular music website soulhead. Debuting with singer Chico DeBarge’s post-prison gem Long Time No See from 1997,the monthly column will revisit great soul records audiences paid little attention to when they were originally released.
“I’ve loved many albums that, for some reason, didn’t connect with listeners,” Gonzales said. “And Long Time No See represents the kind under-the-radar record I’ll be spotlighting. It displayed a mastery of style, honest lyricism and musical depth, but inexplicably nobody seemed to care about it.”
soulhead founder Ron Worthy said, “soulhead exists to uplift classic artists and shed light on the best in new music. Michael is an exceptional journalist who is enthusiastic about everything he covers. He’s been a contributor to our site for the past year, and his colorful, confident style connects with our readers. We know our readers will love it!”
Gonzales has written about popular culture for over twenty years. He has penned features for, among others, Wax Poetics, New York, XXL, The London Telegraph, and Pitchfork Review. He is a frequent on-air contributor for TV One’s popular Celebrity Crime Files.
