Produced by renowned Stax guitarist Steve Cropper (who also adds his stellar guitar playing to the CD), the album is steeped in the spirit of classic Memphis soul but, at the same time, is a contemporary and up-to-the-minute slice of life. Featuring Shemekia's powerful, emotional vocals over a blistering band with horns punching in all the right places, The Soul Truth is a tour-de-force of rock, soul and blues. From the funk and fervor of 'Breakin' Out' to the timely question of 'Who Stole My Radio?' to the rock-powered 'Givin' Up You', The Soul Truth tells it like it is, with deep emotion, forceful beats and music that is satisfying, original and memorable.
