JC Sol proves that once is not enough with her new single Our Groove (Remix) — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
While last year’s version was more of a straight, celebratory ballad of love finding its rhythm, this year’s version ups the groovy ’70s feel with both disco and modern electronic elements. “The positive vibe, smooth vocals and catchy lyrics have touched the hearts of both young and old with an up-to-date ’70s sound that folks can’t quite put their finger on,” says Sol, “and the Remix is a sure replication of the same with an edgy new twist.”
The original track was met with acclaim by North American and European R&B and smooth jazz radio stations and curators. Our Groove also received the honour of being among the top 10 finalists in the Best R&B Song category at the World Songwriting Awards for of 2022.
Canadian-born with Eastern European roots, Sol is a multi-talented singer-songwriter and performer with a passion and love of R&B, Motown and the classic Philly sound. She has found a way to capture the soulful grooves of that special retro sound — while updating it with current, refreshing production. Her vocal style is a bit of Dusty Springfield and Natalie Cole, with a touch of vintage Diana Ross, but her sound is uniquely her own.
Sol toured for many years as a lead singer with various bands, achieving solid success in the early ’80’s. After a hiatus, she has come back strong, having spent time honing her craft and knowing exactly how she wants to sound. “I had written a couple of tunes back in the ’80’s, but the real songwriting process began in the last few years,” she said. “After recording a six-song cover LP in 2020, the inspiration to begin writing original tunes suddenly struck me.”
