Motown Gospel gives a different approach to its artist’s songs with the release of an acoustic compilation aptly titled 1 Mic 1 Take. The CD brings together the label’s best loved performers including Grammy Award winners Smokie Norful and Tasha Cobbs as well as Myron Butler & Levi, Brian Courtney Wilson and Royce Lovett.
This was a first time venture for the label, with the sessions all taking place at the iconic Capitol Studios. “Putting world class artists in a legendary room performing their signature songs with scaled back production doesn’t present itself often,” says, Larry Blackwell, Vice President and General Manager of Motown Gospel. “I believe the artists captured the fundamental essence of our genre with their soulful performances.”
