RK Dawkins

After producing, engineering and mixing other artists' R&B and hip-hop projects for 20 years in the Detroit area, RK DAWKINS has just released JOURNEY, his first solo effort. Drawing on old school jazz influences from the 70s such as Ronnie Laws, Herbie Hancock, Bob James, Norman Connors, the Crusaders, Earth Wind and Fire and others, most of the compositions have a decidedly funky element. Much of the music of the '70s, whether jazz or R&B (not to mention funk), had a funky bass line, guitar and/ or drum bed, because after all, it WAS the era of funk. Dawkins believes, like James Brown, that “whatseneva I play, gots to be funky!” Thus, Journey pays homage to the artists and music of the funk- laden jazz era.
