"LANDING OF THE FUNK IT BE MONKS -
WHAT THE FUNK?"

This video is a promotion for the new Stevie Hawkins WHAT THE FUNK? 2011 album release.

With Bootsy Collins and Stevie Hawkins releasing new funk albums, and with Prince on tour, 2011 is shaping up to be the comeback year of the funk.

Produced/Directed/Edited: Stevie Hawkins
© 2011 Emphasis Records

"What The Funk?" embodies the infuences of Bootsy Collins, Funkadelic, Sly & The Family Stone, Tower of Power, Al Green, Bobby Bland, Marvin Gaye and others. ‘What The Funk?’ was written and recorded over a two year period in (New York - LA - Atlanta - Nashville), and features Stevie with a fabulous lineup of guest artists and musicians. Those appearing on the album include; Soul Diva Jocelyn Brown, Sista Monica Parker, Tony Lindsay, D'Layna, Funk Dogg, Cooley, Jaroslav Jakubovic, The Blues Brothers Horns, The Memphis Horns, Joe Vitale, Thiago Pinheiro, Butch Taylor, Tyrone Chase, Anthony Vitti, Sal Giorgiani, Jennifer Cosaro, Ralph Rosen, Delicious Allstars, Sanj Sen, Chuck Webb and many more.

Although titled What The Funk?, the album is not entirely comprised of funk tunes. Says Stevie, "The album is a mix of funk, soul, jazz, latin, blues, with rock overtones blended throughout the tracks. Although this is me doin' my thing, me being me, the album pays homage to some of my inspirations and influences as a vocalist and drummer such as Clyde Stubblefield, Tower of Power, Bootsy Collins and P-Funk, Al Green, Bobby Bland, George Clinton, Funkadelic, Sly & The Family Stone, James Brown, Toots Thielemans, Cold Blood, George Duke, Marvin Gaye, Junior Walker, Jimi Hendrix and others. There is a little something here for everyone. You get the funk, and then some!"

With soulful vocals, deep drivin' bass, slick guitars, a big~n~tight in your face horn section, smooth Fender Rhodes, super-funky drums, Hammond B-3 organ and clavinet, the heavy guns on this new album fire with all barrels.

Emphasis Records will be promoting the release through various music and social media venues. The CD and DD is currently available for purchase through Atlanta Music Group, Nimbit, and the steviehawkins.com website, but will be available at major retail chains soon. Board the Mothership as it lifts off to take you to the planet Funk-It-Be to experience new music from Stevie Hawkins.   To read more about Stevie Hawkins, Click Here.

High Time is an eclectic mix of authentic Blues, Soul, Rock, Spiritual and R&B songs. Songs that relate to life and times, love and relationships, dancing and simply having fun. The "musicians having fun" aspect is apparent on several of the tracks as in "Take Me Back To Memphis", a song that does what the title says, takes us back to the early 1970s with a funky - soulful classic Stax Records vibe.

Via Hawkins vocal and drum stylings and the soulful guitar work of Drew Stawin and Johnny "Guitar" Brown, the expressive tenor sax of Wally Tarado, the grooving bass of Terrell "Cool" Robinson, the dynamic Atlanta Horns, and other supporting musicians, High Time takes us on a wonderful musical journey through the sounds, moods and grooves of the late 1960s -- early to mid 1970s.

As with his previous Southern Rock release, "Georgia Jam", Hawkins and company holds true to themselves by going against the grain of current popular music and productions. Creating music they love, rather than music to be trendy. The songs on High Time are delivered with heart. True human emotional elements are captured and retained throughout the track list. Hawkins had a desire to record an album where the musician's creative visions and self-expressions could be realized on the spot. Says Hawkins; "We wanted to record some music that we love, so we did it. We didn't try to be modern, simply singing, playing and having fun with it. We took it all back to simple and 'the natural feel".

If you are into Chicago Blues, Memphis Soul, and West Coast R&B, then High Time is a not to miss CD! Hawkins & company hope you have a High Time listening!
