DETROIT, MI, USA, August 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – FIRST MUSIC-NEWS.COM: Parkes Stewart’s first video “Clear Your Mind”
There is nowhere in the world like Detroit. No city looks like it, no city looks like it and no city looks like it. Electronic music, house, hip-hop, blues, R&B: the artists of Detroit have mastered all of these styles, and the music of The Motor City has become the music of America. Southeast Michigan musicians excel in everything they do, but in soul and gospel they are second to none. Gospel music and Motown standards remain the foundation of popular music and always will be. Right at the intersection of soul and gospel is Parkes Stewart, one of Detroit’s finest.
“Clear Your Mind”, her latest single, is devotional music in its purest form. It is a kind of prayer, a call for unity and purpose, and good advice given to listeners of all kinds. Soul music at its peak, delivered by an angelic-voiced singer, a deeply personal relationship to harmony and rhythm, and firmly rooted in Detroit’s rich musical traditions. The song goes from a clear verse to a glorious and instantly memorable chorus, and Parkes pulls all the persuasive power he can from its main line with mellow notations and vocals. It is an emergent performance fully embodied by the Holy Spirit and driven by an unquenchable desire to entertain and uplift.
This is nothing new for Parkes Stewart, who has delighted audiences with his distinctive gospel soul for decades. During his career he has worked with some of the best in the business including Fred Hammond and Mitchell Jones, writing for Commissioned, and Yolanda Adams and artists such as David Hollister and 112 have recorded his songs. He distinguished himself as a melodious lyricist in his own right; regularly provoking performances of extraordinary sensitivity on the part of the musicians with whom he records.
It echoes on “Clear Your Mind”. The backbeat kicks in, the bass groove teases and the backing vocals are just enchanting. Considering the overall feel of the track, it’s no surprise that Parkes Stewart chose to include the entire band in the video “Clear Your Mind” (executive produced by Eat Music Group, video produced by Paige Alston for Gold Television Network). Parkes takes his place in front of the group in a rehearsal studio on the second floor, and there he testifies with the same grace and the same passion that characterize everything he does. As a proud Detroit artist, he takes to the streets to make sure you know exactly where this music is coming from. Expect road signs, sidewalks, old Midwestern homes, and beautiful aerial photos of the city. It’s The Motor City at its core, and Parkes wouldn’t want it any other way.
