Hey Soulsters! The Foreign Exchange graced Atlanta with their soulful presence on Friday at Terminal West. Of course, as a huge fan of this group, you know I couldn’t let them come through my city without catching their show. They are currently on a world tour promoting their latest release, “Love In Flying Colors“. See the album review here.
I saw FE+ for the first time last October and that show was incredible. It’s great to know that each time you see an artist live, their show is even better than before. That was certainly the case on Friday night. The FE crew consisted of Nicolay, Phonte, Zo!, and Carmen Rodgers this go round. They started with their first single off the latest album, “Call It Home“. Phonte’s vocals were definitely on point and I remember thinking, “What a great way to open the show“. I got chills when they walked out to that song. It just got better from there. “If I knew Then” featuring Carmen Rodgers (which is my joint!) was next. Another great song on the album. “Love In Flying Colors” has many great songs on it and they pretty much showcased all of them except one or two. Singer, songwriter and Decatur, GA native, Gwen Bunn made a guest appearance during Zo!‘s, “Count To Five“. This is my favorite song off Zo!‘s ManMade offering, his latest. It introduced me to the very talented Bunn and I have been a fan of her music ever since. See the video for this single here. I was so excited to see her run up on the stage! At the last Atlanta FE+show back in October, Phonte called her out to perform this song, but to my dismay she wasn’t in the building. What a pleasant surprise that Ms. Bunn was there this night and rocked it!
I loved the song choices of past FE+ music that they chose to perform. Songs like, “I Wanna Know”, “House of Cards”, “Come Around”, “Take Off The Blues” and “Nic’s Groove” had me jamming the rest of the night. It seems to me that there was more music than what I remember from the other show, which is more than welcomed!
If you haven’t already, please go and check out FE+ while they are on tour. You can find their tour dates in a city near you on their website, http://www.theforeignexchangemusic.com! You don’t want to miss this show.
