The singer and songwriter of contemporary rhythm and blues known as E3 has re-released his debut solo LP record, “One Soul [Deluxe Edition].” Ellis “E3” Hall III is the son of Ellis Hall Jr., singer of Tower of Power in the 1980s, whose solo music has been honored and enjoyed by such names as Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, as well as by magnates like Jackie Onassis and Bill Clinton. This deluxe re-release of E3's debut LP features bonus tracks and instrumentals not available in the original edition, and has been proudly published on the E3 Publishing Co. independent record label. Crisp, slick, packed with groove and graced by crystal-smooth harmonies, “One Soul” by E3 is easily the most arresting R&B and rap crossover record to be released in years.
E3 cites as main artistic influences such legends as his father, Ellis Hall Jr., James Brown, Sting, Anita Baker, Stevie Wonder, D'Angelo, Timbaland, Earth, Wind & Fire, James Taylor, and Bob Marley. Of these, his own style has most in common with the mood and tone of Stevie Wonder, as well as those of his father, though E3's music is more contemporary in terms of instrumentation than either. In terms of his popular natural singing voice, E3 is reminiscent of soul artist Donny Hathaway, whom E3 has named as his chief inspiration as a singer.
In addition to the considerable talents of E3, himself, his “One Soul” LP also features vocals by New York's Shae Fiol, Boston rapper D Brown, Canada's “Ambassador of Rap” Kardinal Offishall, and ex-Def Jam rapper, Redman. As might be intuited from these names, the rhythm-and-blues portions of “One Soul” are interspersed with heavy-hitting sections of rap music.
E3 has worked with the likes of MC Lyte, Method Man, Saukrates, Termanology, Micheal Whalen, and Choclair. His music has been played on Flow 93.5 FM Toronto, MTV, VH1, Much Music, BET, and more. He is a member of Gilla House Records, an independent music movement captained by Reggie “Redman” Noble. His discography includes Dreamworks' “Biker Boyz Motion Picture Soundtrack,” Method Man's “Tical 0: The Prequel” on Def Jam, Redman's “Red Gone Wild” also on Def Jam, Michael Whalen's “Mysterious Ways,” and the PBS basketball documentary, “This Is A Game, Ladies.”
Originally recorded between 2002-'07 in Boston, Toronto, and Los Angeles, the “One Soul [Deluxe Edition]” by E3 features selections converted to 5.1 Surround Sound, for which the album won the award for Best Standard Resolution Title at the 2005 Surround Sound Music Awards.
“One Soul [Deluxe Edition]” by E3 is available from E3 Publishing Co. online worldwide. Fans of excellent R&B and rap music should get in early.
