Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the hit making R&B duo. Kindred The Family Soul has sold over 500,000 units on their three album releases to date. Many consider the husband and wife duo to be the Ashford & Simpson of their generation, having written and recorded such hits as "Far Away", "Rhythm of Life" and others. With their down to earth, organic and positive brand of Soul they occupy a unique niche on today's R&B landscape. Passion Music.

A well rounded album recommended to anyone who appreciates real soul music.

Aja and Fatin always write lyrics that are relevant, inspiring, positive and just what I needed to hear.

I was introduced to "Love Has No Recession" by Pandora after I made a Kindred station.

The duo Kindred The Family Soul were on separate paths on their way to stardom. In the mid 90's, Aja Graydon had a recording contract as a teenager, while Fatin Dantzler was a session singer and songwriter (A couple of albums that he appeared on at the time were Bell Biv DeVoe's "Hootie Mack" as well as The Roots' "Illadelph Halflife"). By the time Aja and Fatin crossed paths, they instantly fell in love and got married shortly thereafter. Since starting a family, they went back out to perform in the local clubs around Philadelphia. At one of those gigs was fellow Philadephian Jill Scott, who caught them performing and brought them to the label Hidden Beach Recordings. It was there they released their critically acclaimed debut "Someone To Love", which featured the quiet storm favorites "Far Away" and "Stars". In 2005, they released their most successful recording to date "In This Life Together"- a project named after a book by another well known married couple, legendary actors Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. A few years passed on and their label Hidden Beach left Sony Music Entertainment to become an independent label with distribution from Universal Music Group. As a result, their third album "The Arrival" came and went with little to no promotion. They left the label and took up with the independent label Shanachie Entertainment.

In 2011, they returned with their fourth album, the concept album "Love Has No Recession". The project is centered around the issue of the recession and how financial issues can directly impact a married couple. For the first time on a Kindred The Family Soul project, they extend their hand to several collaborators. They have the poets Ursula Rucker and CoCo Brown as well as DJ Rich Medina on the interlude installments "Above Water".

I have been a fan of Kindred the Family Soul for so many years and pre-ordered this latest album, Love Has No Recession. As fate would have it, the album arrived as I was going through some turmoil and unrest in my own relationship. Aja and Fatin always write lyrics that are relevant, inspiring, positive and just what I needed to hear. I'm so amazed by their lyrical conscienceness and ability to speak/sing so eloquently to real family/relationship issues. I'm playing Magic Happen, SOS, Sticking With You, 2 Words and Above Water over and over and over!! I'm thankful to have their love, family and real life centered music to play as the soundtrack to my life. This couple is just amazing and I wish them all the best and so much success with their family and especially their music because I look forward to years and years filled with their music. I will recommend this album to my friends, family and strangers who hear me driving with the radio up way too loud in my car. Thank you Aja and Fatin for another tremendous album.

Kindred's fourth installment, "Love Has No Recession" is a fine listening experience. Here are a compilation of love songs with a social awareness song or two for diversity. Indeed, this is an album for the lovers, but they also speak on problems couples face such as apologizing and figuring out how to remain in love. There are 16 tracks, but quite a few of them are interludes.

Fatin is a gifted singer and Aja holds her own as his vocal partner. Fatin has a grit to his voice that is easily recognizable. "You Got Love" has a beautiful hook and melody. It features an okay rap by Snoop Dogg. Aja is a fellow DC native and she pays homage to our hometown twice. One because of the go-go song on this album, "Going to the Go-go, which features DC native Chuck Brown. Two because she collaborated with another guy who spends much of his time in DC, Raheem DeVaughn. The song he is featured on ("We All Will Know") speaks on social issues. It's a decent songs, but not the best this LP has to offer. I am most impressed with "2 Words." I fell in love with this song instantly. Every couple can relate to this song. The message is let's make up so we can make love. Fatin and Aja execute this one beautifully. Aja's soprano is great and Fatin is doing some serious crooning.

Do yourself a favor and add "Love Has No Recession" to your music collection. You'll be glad you did.

Mikeisha's Top 5

1. "2 Words"
2. "Magic Happen"
3. "You Got Love"
4. "Authentically You"
5. "Going to the Go-Go"

I like the music that this duo has produced in the past, but "Love Has No Recession," doesn't measure up to what I have come to expect. Not so disappointed that I wouldn't recommend this work, just not one that I listen to over and over as I have done with previous releases by this artist.

When the money is right, the family is tight and it’s all good in the world, it’s pretty easy to love one another and thrive as couple, a family and a community. But when the pink slips go out, illness arises or there’s a personal crisis, well ….as the hip-hoppers say, “**** can get real out here.” We may not be able to control all of the factors impacting our lives, but what we can do is keep keeping on, acknowledge uncertainties and refuse to lose sight of one another in the process. And that's what the husband-and-wife duo known as Kindred The Family Soul demonstrates so eloquently on their fourth CD and most cohesive release yet, Love Has No Recession.

It’s a fitting image that the Philly-based married couple, Aja Graydon and Fatin Dantzler, are depicted on the cover embracing and oblivious to the world as they’re submerged to their necks in water, since it’s a metaphoric representation of their efforts to stay close in the midst of a turbulent lifestyle. Creating music, performing, filming a successful web series and raising six children (whew!) would exhaust even the most energetic among us; but combining early musical influences and contemporary peers with their signature approach has ensured that Kindred’s artistry is as impassioned and authentic as ever. If 2008’s The Arrival solidified their stance as a couple and growing household, Love….speaks to the political upheavals, social dramas and other issues that can influence the atmosphere within it.
