"New-School Soul Music" is how to best describe Al "Coffee" McDaniel. His various styles will remind you of Barry White, Marvin Gaye, and Frank Sinatra all wrapped-up into one voice. He effectively mixes R & B, Blues, NEO-Soul, and Jazz melodies with cool modern urban beats. His rich baritone voice is very smooth and soothing to the ear. The emotions, passions, and energy that he expresses with his voice, and his soulful guitar riffs, makes him unique as a crooner, and as a seasoned musician. His Jazzy, Bluesy, and Original guitar playing style makes it very difficult to limit his music to just one category, or genre.
AL “Coffee” McDaniel effectively takes the concepts and grooves from the funk-dance music of the 80’s and blending it with the urban and neo-soul sounds of today.
