In October of last year, we celebrated the release of the inaugural release for Timeless People (the towering debut album "50/50-360" by AudioDope), now the label returns with the second release which is nothing short of breathtaking. Steve Reed aka Blackwax presents a truly eclectic EP which includes three wonderful songs, each one perfectly showcasing Jean Honeymoon unique beautiful jazz tinged vocals. The title track "Brighter days" is a blissful trip down memory lane to the unrivaled boogie sound of the 80's, next we have "Could this be better" an expertly crafted soul oozing gem laced with enticing melodies and gentle yet compelling rhythms. The third and final track is the jazz inspired "I'll be with you" featuring classy keys, grandiose lush strings and marimba by Brian Keys Tharme over a laidback organic backdrop.
