Artist Focus: James Brown

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life. For this edition, Soul Power host Ray_Roman presents no other than soul music royalty, James Brown.

James Brown, one man, many names: Mr Please Please Please, Soul Brother N.1, Godfather of Soul, Mr Dynamite, The Hardest Working Man in show business, Minister of New Super Heavy Funk.

Join Raimondo as he explores how James Brown deserved all of these names, through his history and his songs. A man that represents a real cornerstone in musical history, and one who has influenced and inspired many generations of singers, musicians and dancers.
