    In contemporary music, timing is crucial. 1996 was a perfect moment for neo-soul artist Maxwell to be hailed as the next Prince, especially at a point when His Royal Badness alienated his most loyal fans with eccentricities. As history would have it, R&B fans, weary of bland beats and stale samples were hungry for something fresh and earthy in 2002. Four years in the making, THE WAY I FEEL is the Motown debut of one twenty-three year old Canadian Remy Shand, and his arrival challenges industry convention in the nick of time. The self-taught singer/songwriter/producer and multi-instrumentalist has effectively culled the sound and feel of classic soul; echoes of Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder are paid homage with vintage instrumentation and warm production. From the Memphis vibe of "I Met Your Mercy" to the slow jazz of "Liberate," Shand connects with his influences from the heart. The plinky, imperfectly tuned acoustic piano in "Burnin' Bridges" is just one of countless subtle touches that create a mood devoid of digital sterility. Vocally, Remy Shand glides easily from a Prince-like tenorino to his more natural and comfortable mid-range. Most importantly, THE WAY I FEEL is a study in the virtue of song; a musical art that can be timeless and without boundaries.
