Celebrated soul outfit The Nth Power has released its long-awaited new album, Reverence, the first LP from The Nth Power since 2015’s Abundance, and features extensive contributions from the late Kofi Burbridge.
Led by its core trio of guitarist/vocalist Nick Cassarino, drummer/vocalist Nikki Glaspie, and bassist Nate Edgar, The Nth Power emerged from a quiet pandemic year with a fully-formed new LP. Co-produced by the band with additional production from Rick St. Hilaire (Alicia Keys, A Tribe Called Quest, Earth Wind & Fire) and Will Bradford (SeepeopleS, theWorst) at the legendary Tree Sound Studios in Atlanta and Chillhouse Studios in Boston, Reverence offers eleven original tracks that represent the group’s most inspired work to date.
Both musically and lyrically, Reverence serves as a full-circle moment in The Nth Power’s evolution as a band, tapping into an energy both sensual and spiritual while infusing high doses of rock, soul, funk, reggae, gospel and rhythm and blues. The new songs spread a deep message of hope, empathy, gratitude, and self-forgiveness and, above all, attest to the universal power of love.
The Nth Power is joined on the album by a number of high-profile special guests including iconic saxophonist Maceo Parker, Dumpstaphunk’s Ivan Neville and Nick Daniels, and vocalist Ceryl Pepsii Riley, but no external influence is felt more powerfully on Reverence than that of Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band), whose contributions on ten of the album’s eleven tracks served as some of his final earthly recordings.
“It means everything that Kofi was playing with us before his transition,” says Cassarino. “He brought the same energy to the studio that he brought to the stage, that he brought to rehearsal, that he brought to dinner—greatness.”
