Press Release :
Since she burst onto the scene in the late 60s, Spanky Wilson has recorded with the likes of Marvin Gaye, Sammy Davis Jr., Lalo Schifrin, Jimmy Smith and Willie Bobo. Renowned as a soul singer beyond comparison on both sides of the Atlantic, she has consistently released quality music for the past four decades, always collaborating with some of the most talented and respected producers of the day.

True to form, her new album "I'm Thankful" sees her team up with Will Holland of The Quantic Soul Orchestra to produce a stunning collection of 21st Century jazz, funk, big band and soul music.

Will and Spanky first collaborated in 2005 on two tracks for the third Quantic album, "Mishaps Happening". Inspired by this positive experience, they decided to write an album together. Months of work culminated in a week-long recording session in Spanky's hometown of Los Angeles, California, drafting some of the funk-soul scene's finest players to help them realise their vision.

This first 7" single perfectly captures the spirit of the album. Raw, impassioned, forward-thinking and funky as hell, it's everything we know and love about The Quantic Soul Orchestra fronted by the formidable Spanky Wilson.
