Steve Ray Ladson Shares Authentic R&B single “Do You Know”
South Carolina native Steve Ray Ladson released his new single “Do You Know” today. A multi-instrumentalist and touring member of the five-time Grammy award winning Blind Boys Of Alabama, as well as bassist of Robert Randolph And The Family Band, Ladson’s musical talents need little introduction. Celebrating authentic love and connection, “Do You Know” builds an irresistible, feel-good tune.
“The song has a unique feel, relating between R&B, folk, country and some pop,” said Ladson. “It simply asks a question. Do you know how it feels when you’ve found something real and you love someone. A lot of people don’t realize what it’s like to have real love or someone who genuinely cares about them. Despite what occurs in their relationship. It’s universal; not only for lovers, but friends as well.”
“I produced it in such a manner where it comes across as commercial and acceptable for all ages, genres, and ethnicities of people. It was a natural single because it just moves you the moment the music begins. It’s a happy song with a happy feeling and the world needs happy feelings and often reminders about what we do and do not know about our family, friends, and people around you. So I ask the question to the world today, “Do You Know?”
The single’s music video was shot in Florence, Alabama at the Shoals Theatre by Russ Randolph. Inspired by old variety TV shows of the 50’s and 60’s, the black and white shoot creates a nostalgic and warm vibe. Kept simple and slick, it features Ladson and his background vocalists, collectively known as Bleu.Tweet
