A Crate Supreme Presents the Official Advanced Listening Party for Pink Elephant by N’Dambi on Stax Records.
From the site:
[N’Dambi] Soul music has produced some serious truth tellers in its most glorious past. Finding the conviction to pursue our fondest dreams and the courage to face-up to our darkest truth is perhaps the artist’s greatest challenge. Pink Elephant, the long-awaited Stax Records debut from stirring soul singer N’dambi, explores the art of revelation. “I want to write about the elephant in the room. They see her but refuse to acknowledge or talk about her, let alone confront her. That’s why I’m here.” Pink Elephant was recorded in Santa Monica with producer Leon Sylvers III, whose credits include work for Shalamar, Blackstreet, Gladys Knight, The Whispers, and Lakeside.
