Sending our prayers up for one of our music worlds finest, Rest in Peace BILL WITHERS who sadly passed away earlier this week.
We lost one of the finest Soul storytellers ever, the great Bill Withers was one of our biggest musical influences.
He moved the Soul & R&B world with his music, his warm voice, and vivid pictures he painted with his song-writing, releasing seminal classics like Use Me, Lovely Day, Lean of Me, Ain’t No Sunshine just to name a few.
Here is a 90 minute mix of some of our favourite original Bill Withers cuts, remixes and some edits. We hope you enjoy..

Booker T Jones in the HOUSE! I only just heard about the live show this Thursday at the Metro Sydney presented by who else… Niche Productions.
Niche Productions is ecstatic to present Booker T. Jones – live and direct from Memphis, Tennessee. From legendary Soul-Funk staples like ‘Green Onions’, ‘Time Is Tight’ and ‘Melting Pot’ to producing for Bill Withers and Willie Nelson, the multi instrumentalist and producer has most recently teamed up with ?uestlove and The Roots for his new album The Road From Memphis and now he is bringing his explosive show down under with his razor sharp band.
With the Obama inauguration around the corner & the majority of the world already celebrating the 44th president of the United States, I though it would be a good time to share our own tribute to the nation’s first black President.
