Gig: Eric Benet

Gig: Eric BenetEric Benet returns to the UK this March with his third album Love & Life which has been nominated Best R&B Album in the 51st annual Grammy Awards. Already a huge hit in the US, ‘Love & Life’ has produced hit singles ‘You’re The Only One’ and ‘The Hunger’ the former has been nominated for best male R&B vocal performance in the Grammy awards and peaked just inside the Billboard Top 20 Hot R&B Singles.

Eric’s soulful, sensual vocals exploit Gospel and Jazz influences.  A stellar performer, he wears his heart on his sleeve in his compelling live shows, bringing his feel-good R&B to life with a social consciousness. Probably best known for his 1999 debut recording ‘True To Myself’ and the smash hit single ‘Spend My Life With You’, it has been too long since we’ve had the opportunity to see the man on stage in the UK. And, it’s sure to be the first of many visits as ‘Love Patience & Time’ the lead track from the ‘Love & Life’ album picks up radio airplay across the country. It won’t be too long before he’s playing much less intimate venues at which point these 3 nights at the Jazz Cafe will undoubtedly become the stuff of soul music legend.
