The word timeless best describes the sound of The Rebirth.
While other artists are focused on recreating the latest trends, The Rebirth uses its seven-member fusion to keep the quintessential soul band experience center stage, while evolving the genre of soul music towards the future.
The Rebirth’s forthcoming full-length release, “BEING THRU THE EYES OF A CHILD” is the result of several years of self-discovery, repurposing, and reinvigorating each member’s desire to persevere in their chosen passion. It’s a collection of musical creations that embodies the sound of a time and space that will never be repeated.
From the downbeat of the harmonies in the “Prelude” to the last audible fade in the dynamic soul ballad “Surrender the Pretender,” each song chapters the odyssey of one’s journey from breaking point to self-realization. The music has continuity, detours, and emotions paralleling the ebb and flow of life; where sometimes it’s a celebration — as expressed in the funk undertones of “Show ‘em” — or a peaceful escape which one can find in the acoustic serenity of “Come on Over.”
