As the first black British female solo artist to have 6 consecutive Top 20 hits, Jaki Graham firmly maintains her position as Britain’s most revered queen of soul with the release of her long awaited new studio album ‘When a Woman Loves’.

Mastered at Abbey Road Studios and brought to you by Absolute Label Services, ‘When a Woman Loves’ is the beautiful result of Jaki’s personal and, at times, challenging life journey, highlighting her resilience and strength of character. With song contributions from Michael McDonald (‘Through The Rain’, ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Song Inside Me’), Eric Benet (‘News For You’) and the late Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire (‘Eye To Eye’), the album is an exciting celebration of Jaki’s 40+ years in the business.

This 14-track record offers up a versatile mix of retro, soul and funk as it tells a story and takes the listener on an eclectic, soulful ride, which Jaki herself is proud to call upgraded old-skool. From the sentimental songs that many will consider life’s soundtrack, to the fresh feel good vibes (with a pinch of nostalgia thrown in), there’s a little something for everyone.

Fans of old definitely won’t be disappointed as Jaki seamlessly picks up where she left off, re-introducing her outstanding vocals that have matured and amassed even more power, while the record’s broad appeal also promises to attract a whole new audience.

Each listen reveals something new, whether embedded deep within the music or simply with those subtle background harmonies. The solid foundation on which the album has been produced is honest and authentic, with a sense of familiarity that is reminiscent of a time when music truly was music, came from the heart and was there for all to be enjoyed.

‘When a Woman Loves’ is an exquisite testament to Jaki’s timeless artistry and professional growth and proof that Jaki Graham still shows how it’s done!
