Nolan Porter and Stone Foundation in session

In session we have the legendary Nolan Porter and Stone Foundation. Nolan's songs became must have's for any northern soul connoisseur, and once again made their way into the limelight, famed for his hit's "Keep On Keepin' On" and "If I Could Only Be Sure" later released by Paul Weller. Stone Foundation's brand of British soul has gained them many admirers over the last 18 months with the release of their album 'The Three Shades of Stone Foundation' which features the US soul singer Nolan Porter. Expect a hit packed session from this seriously soulful collaboration.
