London-based R&B band Sunstone has just unveiled their brand new track called “Voices”. It’s a smooth soul/R&B piece that is the third extract from their newly released seventh album titled Virtual Superstar.
Sunstone is composed of former members of the band Black and Fantasy Tan, including George Wong, the composer and producer of the band, who won the International Indie Songwriters Contest twice in 2018 and 2019 for two songs from Sunstone’s debut album Hope.
On the track, the band is joined by their frequent collaborator and 2-time Grammy Award nominated singer K.O (Kristal Oliver), who has also worked with the likes of, Brandy and Ty Dolla Sign, Justin Timberlake among others.
K.O’s soulful and sultry vocals are juxtaposed against wistful keys and expressive guitars. That results in soul and R&B song that’ll make everybody want to chill out for a moment. We highly recommend you give the track a listen.
Speaking about how the song came together, producer and composer George Wong says, “K.O. has worked with us since 2017 and quickly became our No.1 artist. She brings a passion and warmth few can match. It’s amazing how she take’s my work and transforms it into something truly spectacular”.
Listen to “Voices” below:
Dan from RNB1 Radio reached out today to play the new Album Virtual Superstar on his Station. I just recorded an intro for him.
So Thank You Dan and look forward to tuning in and spreading the word!
Thanks to P4Soul for putting me onto this. It’s always nice to get appreciation from Soul Connoisseurs. I am flattered and humbled by the nod of approval.

I was working at Pinewood Studios in the Spring of 2000. Running late for a appointment with one of the cast of Thursday The 13th, I hurtled down the corridor to make the meeting on time. Unfortunately, I ran into a crowd of people blocking the way. I couldn’t stop in time and ran into a girl. The girl was surrounded by men, a lot of men. “I’m sorry” I said “I’m late.” The lady lifted her head and laughed. “That’s ok, don’t worry about it.”
It was Kylie, Kylie Minogue. She looked small and amazing surrounded by her panicked security guards wearing a white dressing robe. She was making, what turned out to be, her big come back debut video for the single “Spinning Around.”
The track went straight to No.1 in the UK ,followed later by the classic “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.”
Sorry Kylie, but it was a pleasure to meet you and witness the magic up close maybe a little too close !
(Funnily enough I went to work with her Sister Danni on Britain’s Next Top Model years later, fate plays it’s hand in weird and wonderful ways.)
It’s flattering to have such an esteemed follower. It’s people like P4Soul who are the engine and keep R&B alive. Gratitude and Respect. Go check them Out
It must have been the Early 90s. I was freelance and in my spare time I would hang out with Mark Plumb at his engraving store on Hoe Street, Walthamstow London.
Mark introduced me to Tommy’s cafe. They did the best bacon sandwiches in London.
Thick doorstep crusty bread with fried tomatoes and brown sauce, you think you’d died and gone to heaven.
My God is was good!
My Dad bought our first Hi-fi 1974, an Hitachi SDT. It was state of the art, you could record with a mic to tape, it had it all.
My kids have no idea what it is. My kids have never seen a record player. The wireless radio with FM as FM was a big deal is now a relic. The Tape Cassette player/recorder..is met with sorry Dad Ca..what?
Times have change beyond recognition. I am so happy to have seen the transition. Tech is wonderful, amazing and represents the best of mankind.
Also My Dad was such a Dude..!
