Kez: Demo (Almo Irving Music Publishing 199x)

Originally posted in 2016, I initially believed the above artist to be a performer but with the addition of the above cassette to my music library, I am now inclined to believe that they were a composer. With the exception of Almo artist Sheree Ford-Payne on track 1, there are many different vocalists on these tracks which are a mixture of contemporary R&B, New Jack Swing and Sade-esque synthy soul. As for Almo Irving, they were and still are a music publishing venture between former A&M founders Herb Alpert and music executive Jerry Moss which eventually branched out into the label Almo Sounds in the 90s. Sadly aside from Ford-Payne, their catalog mostly consisted of rock artists. Big thanks again to Stuaaart for the score!

All songs are full tracks with the exception of two hip hop productions (3 & 4) which are excerpts only. Tracks 4, 7, 8 & 9 were originally featured on the EP I posted back in 2016 but one (track 8) has new music and a different vocalist here.
