Serving as a self-proclaimed mediator for the underdogs, the weak and poor, Old Ice had to explore courage and bravery by serving his country in the Navy. This military veteran is continuing his service through music by serving up a heavy dose of R&B blended with Soul, Funk and Island vibes. Old Ice wants to spread good music as well as the importance of patriotism and brotherhood – both of which are themes that are heavily lace the foundations of his music.
He has recorded 2 full albums – “The Wolf” and “The Patriot” – which are available on his website, and has been steadily building his catalog. He is also currently preparing a brand new video to enforce his media presence and show off his all-round talents.
Old Ice attempting to establish himself as a trailblazing soul and funk infused maven. His recordings rank as emotive and sonically progressive songs of the modern era with a definite retro flavor. The music moves, mesmerizes, and lingers like a sensational stranger who rocks your world but only stays for a single night. Its powers of seduction are sublime.
His deliveries are raw, candid and visceral with plenty of improvisation, while adding full-force funk and lush orchestration that never dips into maudlin malaise. And there are an abundance of spoken-word pieces that hit as hard as any rumbling bass line.
At times, like on “The Wolf”, Old Ice skips the vocal acrobatics for intensity, and feel, as his low growling voice effortlessly dances through genres for the sheer reason of achieving upmost, gut-level intensity. And at others, as can be heard on “The Patriot”, the swaggering soul of the numbers, hold enough edifying truths to solely drive the messages of the songs.
In terms of sonic structure and lyrics, Old Ice is clearly unconventional as he carves his own lane. His soundscapes hit hard in the finest way possible. Its R&B, soul, and funk but unlike anything currently being recorded, this is pure Old Ice legacy.
This is music that ripples with raw passion and song-serving innovation without all the gloss and production gimmickry. This walks closely along the cutting edge of experimental.
