Thanks!
Havens, while cool, is a little too folky for me.
The Isley brothers seem okay, but they sound kinda generic to me.
I'll have to give them several listens though, I'm new to the genre and bound to dismiss stuff based on my ignorance.

Really like his soulful, but somewhat laid-back singing, the chilled, but funky grooves and the arrangements (especially the swelling strings).
Could someone recommend similar artists?
Try some Gil Scott Heron.

I've heard some of his songs before and quite liked them.
I'll have to check out some albums.
Thanks for the rec.
