    Pay Attention 2: George Tandy, Jr. - By ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino...

    A slow piano serenely resounds along with a wailing guitar lead as George Tandy, Jr.'s voice slowly takes hold during his new single "Jaded".

    It's a warm and wonderful embrace as he encourages, "Settle down, settle down". You can't help but listen to him. His vocals remain so immediately powerful and potent. "I will do you right," he proclaims over and over again, and it's instantly clear that he's really doing R&B right. There's rarely this much soul in music anymore, and his raw talent separates him miles above the pack. It's time to forget about being "Jaded" and put faith in George Tandy, Jr. and the future of R&B music. He's worth it.

    His Republic Records album, The Foundation [iTunes link], becomes available next Tuesday July 29, and it signals the start of something wonderful. It's the commencement of a return to real R&B and a new dawn. After making a stunning Essence Festival debut, he's in the midst of a headline tour now and will be playing a special release day gig at Subculture in New York. This is all only the beginning though.

    George Tandy, Jr. knows the past, and that's why his future is so bright.
