Jay Harvey sings Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come". We gave it a different twist for our wonderful album "Northern Soul 2010", which was released in September 2010. This amazing album brings the Northern Soul sound into the "here and now" with a fresh vibrancy. Music which still holds the spirit and feel of the records heard at legendary clubs like the Wigan Casino and the Blackpool Mecca. It features brand new songs from established names famous on the rare soul dancefloors of the UK, stalwart legends like Sidney Barnes, Clem Curtis, Jimmy Thomas, Moon Williams, Jimmy James, D.C. Larue, and Ronnie Walker, and also presents new talent including Fay Jones, Nat Augustin, Lyn Jerrard, and Tahira Jumah. Jay was brought up with soul music all his life and has made quite a name for himself on the London R&B circuit. The X-Factor rejected Jay Harvey. He went along to sing this song and also Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You". I was convinced he was going to make the final ten. So I cut the Sam Cooke classic on him to show the world what exactly got rejected. I first met him through Holly Harrison, Jay sang with her on the backing vocals for "Bright Lights Of The City". There and then I vowed to use him on my next album. He first sounded amazingly like Michael Jackson, but with a new freshness of his own. Our first song together, recorded in 2008, "Walking In The Dark", was a stunning classic soul song. Jay also performed a duet with our wonderful diva Tahira Jumah, called "My Oh My", a Marvin Gaye type classic protest song. Then we did "Making All The Right Moves" in 2009. Jay is just so fabulous, so willing, so lovely, so co-operative, and such a warm hearted person, and it makes me proud to have artists of this calibre on Centre City Records.
