Bi-Faith: S/T (Versitile Records, 1998)

Described as a "contemporary Gospel R&B group that could reach the streets" Bi-Faith was a female duo based out of NYC and produced by Louis Straker Jr., now a pastor with The Reflections of Christ's Kingdom fellowship in Brooklyn, NY. One of the vocalists Larissa Straker (Louis Straker Jr's younger sister) was only 15 when this album was recorded. Usually not a big fan of gospel, I was thoroughly impressed with their effort which married mellow mid-90s R&B and gospel excellently. My only complaint is that is a very short one at only 32 minutes long. Regardless, it spawned one single "Never Alone" which was played on mainstream urban radio stations in New York.
