Listen to all the songs from Adrian Bagher's WILLING AND ABLE album on YouTube.

Daddy B. Nice notes:

Adrian Bagher drops his newest CD, WILLING AND ABLE, five years after his debut with Pokey Bear and Tyree Neal as one of The Louisiana Blues Brothas on the acclaimed album Love On The Bayou, and four years after his first solo album, Grown Folks Business. It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to deduce WILLING AND ABLE, with its mix of already-charted singles and new material, will be popular with the southern soul audience, if not perhaps as crowd-pleasing as LOVE ON THE BAYOU, yet a huge step forward from GROWN FOLKS BUSINESS. The title tune "Willing And Able," tackles one of the thorniest issues progressives (both men and women) have with male-dominated southern soul culture, namely the traditional stereotypes of the man who works outside the home and the woman who stays home as mother and homemaker.

But the real excitement for fans is the rounding-up of Adrian Bagher's most intriguing and successful singles of the last few years, including the YouTube sensation with two million views, "I'll Take Care Of You".

"Not My Woman No More," formerly "That Ain't My Woman," with Mark Holloway and the late Katrenia Jefferson, charted in October 2018, and "Don't Blame It On Jody" charted as Daddy B. Nice's #1 single in June of 2017:

Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "BREAKING" Southern Soul Singles Preview For. . .

-------JUNE 2017-------

1. "Don't Blame It On Jody"-----Adrian Bagher

Like "Stand Up In It" or "My Sidepiece," "Don't Blame It On Jody" proves that lyrics still rule the collective southern soul imagination. And here's the "nitty-grittiest":

"The whole damn time,
It wasn't a man.
It was ol' Sophia,
Down there licking that thing."

The song has captured 150,000 YouTube views in just two months, and the young artist's not being opportunistically sensational, either. From his very first single, "Around The Corner (99 Problems I Can Help You Solve)," Adrian Bagher's been drawn to domestic melodrama like a bumblebee to flowering clover. He's the forgotten Louisiana Blues Brotha (with Pokey Bear and Tyree Neal), and his "Dirty" was Daddy B. Nice's #1 in January (scroll down), making two number-one's in six months.

-------JANUARY 2017-------

1. "Dirty"------Adrian Bagher

Great dance jam. In just the first few bars, with its hiphop sheen and rhythm-track "fullness," you know it's either Beat Flippa or--as it turns out--Heavy (aka Highway Heavy), Charles Lewis of "Sidepiece" and "Three" fame on the production. And doing the singing is the kid your Daddy B. Nice has been waiting to break out--a guy who's intent on expressing emotions most people won't touch--the deserving Adrian Bagher.

MAY 2013

7. "Come Around This Corner"-------------Adrian

This is one of those raw young artists I just love to discover--the continuing lifeblood of the genre. The rather startling lyrics include:

"Heard him fussing in the back room
While I was trying to sleep.
Heard you crying in the bathroom
Like you just got beat.

I ain't no nosy neighbor,
But...."

Heard it--where else?--at WMPR, where you'll have to request it for the near future. No release yet.

5. "Pickin' These Blues Away"-------The Louisiana Blues Brothas featuring Tyree Neal

Tyree may be "pickin'" these blues, but what makes this song special is the beautiful harmony of the live horns. The Louisiana Blues Brothas are Tyree Neal, Pokey and Adrian Bagher.

Listen to The Louisiana Blues Brothas featuring Tyree Neal singing "Pickin' These Blues Away" (preceding the song "Who You With") on YouTube.

Buy "Pickin' These Blues Away" mp3 on the LOVE ON THE BAYOU compilation CD from the Louisiana Blues Brothas.

8. "Who You With"-------Louisiana Blues Brothers

How about a little southern soul super-group action? Tyree Neal, Adrian Bagher and Pokey are the Louisiana Blues Brothers, with their second charting in two months. I especially like Pokey--he's got a lot of Reggie P. in him.

Listen to the Louisiana Blues Brothers singing "Who You With" on YouTube.

2. "T.G.I.F. (Thank God It's Friday)"-----Pokey featuring Vince Hutchinson & Adrian Bagher

Put on your marching shoes, dancers, and put those arms and hands high in the air. Reach for your inner mojo and prance to the finest club anthem to come down the pike since Big Yayo's "Cowgirl" in January.

Listen to Pokey & Friends singing "T.G.I.F." on YouTube.

2. "Let's Do It"-----Adrian Bagher, Veronica Ra'elle & Big Cynthia

T.K. Soul always liked to be known as the "boy boy". "Bad boy" is evident in the vivid story-telling of Adrian Bagher's very first, Jackson, Mississippi-based hit, "Around The Corner (99 Problems I Can Help You Solve)." Here in "Let's Do It"--from the highly entertaining BEAT FLIPPA: I GOT THE BLUES album--Adrian comes off like the ghost of Little Richard, blazing a new rock and roll frontier.

Listen to Adrian Badger and friends singing "Let's Do It" on YouTube.

Buy Adrian Badger's "Let's Do It" mp3 on the BEAT FLIPPA: I GOT THE BLUES album.
