The Brian Holland Sessions by MoZella is now available via Belle Isle / Beverly Martel. This exciting new album was co-written by Motown legend Brian Holland – songwriter of over 25 #1 Motown songs – and co-produced by Holland along with Dave Wilder (Macy Gray & Ghostface Killah).
Mozella – who seamlessly blends her charismatic vocals and charming personality with carefully crafted pop, soul, and jazz – was a perfect compliment to Holland’s songwriting, synonymous with what is arguably considered the greatest period of American songwriting history. Holland is responsible for classic songs such as “(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave” for Martha and the Vandellas, “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)” for Marvin Gaye, “Baby I Need Your Loving” for the Four Tops and hit songs by The Supremes like “Baby Love,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.”
Within a few weeks of writing together, Mozella and Holland put together a 10-song album of sophisticated R&B and memorable pop melodies using Motown’s signature foundation of rhythmic bass and drums.
With songs such as the driving “Another You,” the romantic “Exception” and the sweeping “You Don’t Love Anyone But Yourself,” “The Brian Holland Sessions” is an undeniable album of catchy symphonic doo-wop and soul, sung by an accomplished artist and composed by an unparalleled legend.
