Familiar Face: Living Waters (O.Y.T. Records, 2001)

Another obscure male 4-piece group that I've never heard of before and a mixture of contemporary R&B, gospel, modern soul and a few club tracks. The lead singer and producer Wendell Noble was previously the lead singer of The Joneses (later The Platters) and has a classic soul tenor vocal range (another member Ramon Nobel may also have been a member of the former although I don't know for certain.) Though Noble's vocals more than compliment the gospel and modern soul on this album, I don't know as if he's really suited to contemporary R&B music. No mention of this particular endeavor appears anywhere in his biography.
