Crooner Soul Super Hero To The Rescue!Conquer ... Sexy Soul on Track"Hump in yo back!"In April 2004 Aliya S. King reviewed my second album Let's Talk About it for Vibe Magazine Revolutions. The spotlight beaming on a painful truth, "It's hard to be a modern day soul singer." If you follow the path of R&B legends Marvin Gaye & Stevie Wonder you're dubbed as "Old School." If you integrate too closely with hip-hop you're dubbed "Desperate to stay relevant." The question remains "is there a common ground at all?"It's now 2011 and after years of studying the greats & paying attention to today's brightest stars, I'm ready to answer that question again. I've made a conscious effort to write from the heart without the pressure to replicate the success of my first number one record "I Wish." Although it appears the historic position and relevance of R&B/Soul music has faded, I believe my new project release titled Conquer August 2011 offers a foundation for restoration. Title track "Conquer," ﬁrst single "Round Two," & "It Ain't Fair," are some of the songs penned to reinforce my central theme of life, love & relationships. Combine that with gritty hip-hop beats, and you get the feel good album you're looking for in Conquer.While recording these songs about complex grown-up emotions, the focus was the art of seduction leading to a mature consensual intimacy, instead of adolescent superficial sex. The goal was to prove that true love expression isn't a thing of the past and soul singers are not myths, we really do exist. So, again the spotlight is beaming on R&B and this time you can find me center stage, microphone in hand being true to what I Do.Follow me on Twitter @Mr_Carl_Thomas, request my new music, Like Carl Thomas: Conquer New Album on Facebook Album Page, friend me on MySpace and stay tuned to www.carlthomas.tv.

Is This America, Or Not?
All respect due people but, I have some fundamental issues to share on the inconsistencies insidiously seeping into the veins of our people (ALL PEOPLE, AMERICAN PEOPLE)! I have been asked to participate in the mobilization of "Chicago Youth Stop the Violence Initiative." But, that is not what Chicago nor the country needs! What we need is information that can be used to look deep within wanting to change without a push. When I was a teenager in the eight grade, my science class performed an experiment that was both scientific and, then unknown to me sociological. You have two pans of water, one hot and one cold. And, a small frog was placed into the hot pan of water. Upon contact with the hot water the frog immediately jumped out of the water frantically hopping about the room. But, when we took that same frog and placed him in the cold pan of water, he comfortably sat there unaware of the flame gradually heating it. And, because the temperature was slowly raised, the DUMB ASS FROG SAT THERE AND BOILED TO DEATH!!! And, this is the same experiment imposed on the American public. Our city's suffer because the people in charge make money from our dismay!!! And, the only reason why revolution and change has ever worked in the past; is because those who revolted valued freedom more than their own lives. Make no mistake about it either the powers that be will eventually boil you once you have fully served your purpose to the work force. Or impending doom imposed through lies and intimidation will kill you, or you will fight back and live, or at least die for something real.
That means things will not change until people get so sick, tired and fed up that they use the tools of history to fight back against those in charge of perpetuating bloodshed on our city streets with the will to spill the blood of those in charge into the very streets that they've imprisoned (civil unrest). It is the duty of the people(all Americans) from time to time to self heal and purge the system. We must wake up!!!!!! Because the powers that be have us happy & content in a euphoric slumber of slavery!!! From church to state they control us all even if you think not! sad part is, white people are slaves to the same beast and don't even know it! They control the people, all the people! One group must appear to be on top with the illusion of controlling interest & one on the bottom with the need to be governed by the those with the "illusive" power. You see the global plan always starts on a local level, such as the streets of Chicago and so on... Own yourself Rule yourself! And if each of us does just that, we shall be together in true freedom; peace and freedom caused by the real love of GOD.
Ask yourself, America, or not?
PS. Thank you Mr. Murray for the inspiration...
