"60 Second Review: Preachermann - Negroes Stay Crunchy In Milk"

“To follow the path of one's elders in bloodline is generally the natural order of man. Preachermann is no different when it comes to this tradition as there are a number of ministers in his family, realizing this he chose to follow suit but in a very unorthodox way compared to those that came before him. To preach means to teach, something that this administer of soul does throughout his EP entitled 'Negroes Stay Crunchy In Milk'. With a voice that reminds you of Curtis Mayfield with a bit of Al Green during his chain rockin shirtless period, Preachermann channels the energy of many soul singers of the past but still his unique energy and life's experience shine through to reveal pieces of this man as he brings us to the present moment. Apparent in his interaction with audiences at live shows and even out in the jungle of concrete plateaus, you can see that its not all about him, its about the betterment of the hearts of his ever growing congregation, being anointed with the words and sounds he conjures and transmits for his heavenly guide.” - 60Second Review

"Preachermann and The Revival"

“…impassioned yet wickedly subtle, politically conscious oldschool-style soul crooner Preachermann & the Revival - best known for his 2007 album Negroes Stay Crunchy in Milk – at Shrine. Sort of the missing link between late-period Marvin Gaye and Gil Scott-Heron.” - New York Music Daily

Bio

At a time when the art of the live performance is losing ground to homemade internet videos, and neophyte music groups are being awarded record deals without ever having wooed a single live audience, New York City’s Preachermann testifies to the tried and true formulas for achieving lasting success in a ‘here today gone tomorrow’ culture: hard-work, talent, perseverance, charisma, and humility. His voice, lyrics and stage performance stand on soul-shoulders as varied as the Isley Brothers, Lenny Kravitz, Ritchie Havens, Bob Dylan, Al Greene, and James Brown, and yet all of these influences bow to his own remarkably deep and refined endowments.

What sets him apart from his peers is that his sultry brand of neo-soul is not only fresh, it is fearless; not merely sensuous, but conscious. And unlike so many modern soul artists whose work is weighed down with clichés, he has an uncanny knack for clever wordplay that bridges the serious side of life with the levity that makes it livable. The title track to his 2006 LP, Negroes Stay Crunchy in Milk, is but one shining example of Preacher’s capacity to skillfully and seamlessly blend prophetic lore with ironic metaphor to make timeless music that crosses broad boundaries without selling itself out.

Among those in the know, Preacher’s live performances – the sheer spiritual splendor of them – are among the few must-see underground gems in New York City. In addition to earning artist-in-residence status at the venerated downtown staple, the Bowery Poetry Club, Preachermann has thrown down in legendary venues like CBGB, The Knitting Factory and Joe's Pub, and in avant-garde art scenes such as the Kitchen, all to critical acclaim and ever-widening popular appeal.
