A traveling preacher of partying, Space Capone (AKA Aaron Winters) will release his self-titled debut album on AVJ Records in early 2012. The platter will feature horn-laden soul-funk dance floor rockers and silkened R&B.
Unabashedly influenced by Winters' musical heroes Rick James, Earth, Wind & Fire, and early Michael Jackson, the album also holds its own among Winters' musical contemporaries like the Scissor Sisters and Chromeo. Space Capone's first single "I Just Wanna Dance" - a shimmering, falsetto disco anthem -will be released digitally Nov. 15. Listen to it here to try before you buy.
"I'm thrilled to put this album on out AVJ," said Winters. "All I've ever wanted to do was music and this is my opportunity to do it right."
Over the past few years the thrift store-loving Indiana native has made a name for himself in his adopted hometown of Nashville TN, helping to put the city on the map as an up-and-coming indie music destination. The local press is smitten with Capone's highly danceable, '70s-style grooves and retro style and the national media is starting to catch the vapors too. Space Capone has been featured on TBS' entertainment program Sound Check and Mark Mays of The Tennessean raved that "Capone sounds like the real deal. His malleable voice can fall into a rumble or rise to a tingly falsetto, though he's best when gettin' his baritone on. He takes his songwriting cues from the '70s, by way of the neo-soul artists who reintroduced audiences to the classics - Giorgio Moroder's disco, Philly soul and Detroit funk."
