Res, a wildly talented soul rock singer, released her major label debut (“How I Do”) in 2001. The album’s single They Say Vision
was a Top 40 hit and went number 1 on the dance charts. Other singles like Golden Boys
and Ice King
all received radio play. Res completed work on her second album (Black Girls Rock!
) planned for a 2004 – 2005 release. After some label shakeups the album would ultimately be shelved. Res broke away from her label and went independent working on new music with Talib Kweli
that would later morph into their side project Idle Warship
. Upcoming projects include an EP of Fleetwood Mac
covers called ReFried Mac
and her third solo CD.
