Gfactor are husband and wife duo Derrick 'Domino' and Sharon 'Scherrie' Winding based in Arlington, Texas. Sharon handles all the vocals leaving instrumentation and guitar to hubbie Derrick. I have to confess this album "snook" up on me, in that it has been a grower with a personal definition of being retro sweet soul music. This is super smooth in chill out mood firmly grounded on scriptural lyrics. It reminded me in places of Philip Bailey's gospel offerings of a few years back, especially on "Think Of You". No banging bass beats on show here but rather delicate harmonies interwoven with melodies that draw from the influences of jazz, gospel, classical and soul. I could have missed out with this album but have found more to appreciate with each listen. It will fit the bill as a calming and edifying listen and eradicate "road rage" on long trips in my car.
