FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The singer and songwriter known as Stephen Drakes has released his latest LP record, “Forbidden Fruit.” The album is comprised of 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been released on the SwayTone records music label. A classy, stylish, new and revamped form of contemporary R 'n' B, “Forbidden Fruit” by Stephen Drakes is slated to be a record fans of rhythm and blues everywhere remember for decades to come.

Stephen Drakes cites as main artistic influences Carl Thomas, DeAngelo, and Rick Ross. However, Drakes' own sound is entirely original. So original is the Drakes method, in fact, that he has coined a new term to describe it: rock 'n' soul. While his “Forbidden Fruit” album is commonly listed as R 'n' B and contemporary R 'n' B, Drakes' own term is absolutely more appropriate.

His official bio describes him as “a talented singer, songwriter, super producer and master harmonizer whose music is influenced my many different genres. It’s for this reason he decided his music does not fit into any of today’s conventional genres and has created his own.”

Much of the lyric poetry with which Drakes has infused his music runs along romantic lines. Speaking of the themes of “Forbidden Fruit,” he writes, “A lot of this album is true to my past and present. It's about a man who's aware of the rules of karma, but has been tempted, on occasion, by the allure of that which is forbidden. He seeks love, but is content to indulge in encounters which can evoke feelings of love, however superficial it may be.”

Like his album, Drakes feels certain that the story will finish on a high note.

“There is a love for everyone, and in the end, I’ll find mine.”

Drakes has been playing music since the age of five. He has written over a hundred songs in many genres, including R 'n' B, hip hop, jazz, alternative, blues and even classical. In time he added music production to his list of skills. Drakes served in the U.S. Marine Corps for five years and afterward determined to get his music published.

His participation in the 2008 “Scion Summer Soul Fest” inspired one official judge to comment, “This dude shouldn’t even be in this competition. He’s way ahead of the other artists.”

“Forbidden Fruit” by Stephen Drakes is available online worldwide. Get in early.
