Raphael Saadiq Brings Old School Sounds To The Dino Lounge

saadiq

Raphael Saadiq is a musical jack of all trades. He's a singer, songwriter & producer. He's the former lead singer of the band Tony! Toni! Toné. I actually saw them in concert in the early 1990's. He was also a founding member of the short-lived group Lucy Pearl. This post has to do with his solo career. Raphael has recorded an amazing album called The Way I See It, which was released in September of 2008. I love this incredible album. I highly recommend it. If you've been aching for some old school r&b/soul, then this is the album for you. Please check out the videos I've posted below. Thanks.
