Because of the relentless onset of all music sounding virtually the same, I search endlessly for music that has depth, soul and passion. Olu is that music. Olu works with the same producer that gave us Sade, Sweetback and Maxwell so one can rest assured that the melodies and sounds are genuine and not rehashed samples of yesteryear. Conversely, even though the music is new, it reminds us of the grooves from back in the day with it lush rhythms. There is certain music that I classify as "travel music", music that is great for a nice roadtrip to some exotic escape. Olu is the perfect music for such a jaunt. His voice reminds you of Bryan McKnight, Kenny Latimore and Eric Benet all rolled into one, and yet it's distinct at the same time. I see this CD as the personification of "getting your groove on music".
I pick it as one of the better CD's over the last few years and I recommend it as a must have.

THIS ALBUM IS SO MELLOW AND SO ASPIRING I CAN'T EVEN FIND THE WORDS TO SAY HOW. HE IS TRULLY GIFTED AND TALENTED. EVER SINCE I BOUGHT THIS ALBUM I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN. THIS CD KEEPS ME GOING WHEN I FEEL I CANNOT. THIS BROTHER IS NICE. THIS IS A REAL RELIEF FROM ALL OF THAT ASHANTI, B2K GARBAGE BEING FORCED ON US INTELLEGENT BLACK PEOPLE BY THE URBAN MEDIA
AN ESSENTIAL TO FANS OF THE POSITIVE NU SOUL MOVEMENT

I SAW OLU'S VIDEO ON BET AND FROM THAT ONE SONG I KNEW I HAD TO HAVE THE CD. I AM TRULY GLAD I MADE THIS PURCHASE. THE CD STAYED IN MY BOOMBOX FOR WEEKS. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THE TRACKS, SISTA WHY?, LONG WAY AND MY WORLD. UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANY RADIO AIRPLAY IN MY CITY FOR ANY OF OLU'S SONGS. I JUST FEEL IT'S A SHAME HOW RADIO STATIONS WILL PLAY ONLY CERTAIN SONGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN WHEN THEY COULD BE PLAYING REAL MUSIC LIKE OLU. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO ALL FUTURE PROJECTS.

Olu is an incredible artist ...vocalist. I'm rarely blown away by contemporary muscicians -- but Olu's captivating sound and thoughtful themes have left me wondering why he hasn't blown up. Apparently, radio stations have an aversion to great music. It's ashame he's not getting the exposure his talent deserves. Buy two or three copies and send them to a few friends. Fellas, send Soul Catcher to any woman you're interested in, and I guarantee that if she can't dig this brother's sound -- she ain't the one!
Adriana Evans is another neglected treasure. Her self-titled CD is too nice to pass up.

The video is what first caught my attention and I heard the debut single (baby can't leave it alone)months before it was on commercial radio on a local college radio station. [WRAS 88.5, big up CHA-CHA for playing great music]I knew then that this man had something happening. I was on the internet and in the record stores searching for this CD. Found it a day before its release date in a small record store in Birmingham Alabama. A old school voice and vocals on new urban beats and production. The title "Soul Catcher" says alot for the man and the style he brings, reaching deep within and grabbing your soul by the ears and paralyzing it for the entire CD. Must say that I had to buy two, one for home and the other for my PC at work. keep up the good "soul music"

Olu fills the void in R&B music with his debut. The voice and lyrics alone make this album a classic. This album can serve as inspiration in time of trial, as well in triumph. My favorite cuts are My World, Baby Can't Leave It Alone, and Together. If you are tired of listening to the mainstream cuts that are in heavy rotation at your local urban radio station, give Soul Catcher a try. You won't be disappointed.

An R&B singer that can sing and doesn't have to worry about dancing. I bought this album in 1999 and it has not lost any of it's luster. I am wondering why Olu's label didn't give him another album. I suspect that his music is too "grown" for the current crop of B2K and R.Kelly fans. As I wait for new LP's from Maxwell, D'Angelo, and Rapheal Sadiqq (Remy Shand also), Olu keeps me cool with real grown folk R&B (not Rap and bull&%!$). This is not Nu-Soul music as this monicker grows more and more contrived, restricting and corny. Writer, producer, plays most of the intruments, this brother is hot, someone please give him a chance.

Congrats to Olu on a job well done!! This entire album was rich in beautiful lyrics, music, and vocals. I had to go to three separate record stores to find this album because Soul Catcher was sold out almost instantly!!! I am so happy that artists are starting to realize that true contemporary R&B fans want music with lyrical depth and musical creativity. My favorite songs are Sista Why, Don't Cry, My World, and Baby, Cant Leave It Alone although I can listen to every song with ease. This music makes you think as well as feel. Best of Luck.....
