A few days back while searching for new music to indulge into, HF® ran across veteran Philadelphia soulstress, Res — via her Twitter. RES’ solo debut album “How I Do" remains a cult classic to this day. Her follow up entitled “Black Girls Rock” was released completely independent and showcased RES as an artist finding her own voice. Also, being half of the super music group, Idle Warship with TalibKweli.
Taking time out to research what she’d been involved in as of recent years, we took notice of her latest iTunes EP release: “Refried Mac”— Which covers five classic Fleetwood Mac songs — We dug deeper, being intrigued by what Res brought to the table with this EP.
Two hours later, we found ourselves contacting Res, giving her praise on what HF® felt to be a"Classic" piece of art — in sonic form. Before we knew it, Resmanagement team sent her press package to us — thus allowing our exploring further into how "Refried Mac" came into existence.
