Album Notes
Da' Soul Recordings Group LLC., proudly presents Two Brothers Records recordings artist Ricardo and his debut CD "Dazed." Ricardo AKA "WORDZ" is one of the "Founding Fathers" of Da' Soul Recordings Group LLC. & Co-Founder of Two Brothers Records with his partner, the artist/producer known as "J."

Ricardo, a singer/songwriter from Milwaukee Wisconsin has worked with several of the Da' Soul Recordings Group family of artists; Mona J, "My Frame Of Mind," Chazz Dixon, "Back To The Groove," Renee, "Flavor Of The Day," & Mr. Sonny Garr, "Mood Of Love."

A writer, lead and back ground vocal arranger first, Ricardo steps up front on his solo project with songs that tell as he puts it, "The trials & tribulations of love and life..." "True Too Life" music if you will..." "I believe a song should tell a story... a story that the listener can relate to... that challenges the listener to reside into the inner recesses of his or her mind so as to reflect on their own situation..." this ballad laden project takes us from the newness of a relationship, the realness of true love, the trials and tribulations of that love. This is a reality check that all lovers go through and ends with a testimonial from a brother just trying to love his woman.

Ricardo list as his influences, "Anything and everything from Motown to the Philly soul sounds..." "I just love the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, O'Jays, Spinners, Four Tops; What can I say? I'm and O'l School Junkie!" Further influences are the MNPLS soul sounds of Prince and the Time... "Funky music, ya feel me?" He went on to say that groups like the Gap Band, Earth Wind & Fire, Cameo, Parliament, New Edition ("Man, them brothers can step!"), Al Hudson and One Way, Starpoint, Kool & the Gang, etc... definitely had a major influence on his writing style. As for the artists of today, Joe, Gerald Levert, Brian McKnight & that last project by Usher; "Yeah, those guys know how to hold it down. Truth is, I just prefer the ol' School... I mean I have much respect for the current crop of artist such as R. Kelley, Jay Z & Nelly with the whole hip-hop thing, but give me some New Edition, Sade, Regina Belle, Patti Labelle, Luther, O'Jays, you know the ol' Schoolers... and I'm set!"

This brother along with his partner and producer "J," who by the way is responsible for all the musical composition, musical arrangement, and all instruments played on this CD as well as a few background vocals, a CD project that is more than your run of the mill R&B. It is truly music from the Soul. "Man I poured my heart and soul into this project... I tried to pull not only from personal experience but from the experiences of brothers & sisters that have shared the ups & downs of their relationships with me." I guess you could say it's the story of "any man & women, from anywhere USA, of their special moment in time when they found love... All the tracks can stand on there own but this is truly a concept project so keep that in mind while listening... Ricardo's advice... "Cuddle up with the one you love & journey back to the groove that started your love... Settle in and let the mood of love fill the air... Take me as I am... just a brother pouring out his heart to the one woman in his life that matters the most... Fellas, learn your women, become her flavor of the day, everyday... Oh & never forget that she has her own frame of mind... Now ladies... do all the nice guys a favor and show them some love... If you follow these simple steps, you will find that love will still leave you "DAZED." All my Best, Ricardo AKA "WORDZ."

Ricardo, I was suprised by "Dazed". You have a smooth voice, very soothing. Finally, some mature music that me and my two-year-old can get into. "Nice Guys" and "(I Love The Way)You're So Into Me" are off the hook. Keep up the good work!

The Good and Bad times of Love Explored
I really enjoyed the entire CD! You are an excellent storyteller and the songs are so true to the way love goes through ups and downs. I love So Into Me, Wish I had You, Be Mine (So sweet!), Dazed, You Get What You Give, & Nice Guys. Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.

Noble, noble, noble . . . jammmmmmm!
My Brother, my Brother; Wordz - True 2 Life but I'd expect nothing less, you're one of the best Bro. I have learned and continue to learn so much from you. Thanks for showing me how to be me and for allowing me to be an adopted brother. The cd is smokin'

Much love and continued success.

Having the opportunity to work with Ricardo over the past several years has been a great pleasure. A talent for finding the right lyric at the right time is his forte, and this cd is the right time. YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE IS sooo heavy!! Much luv and continued success on this journey. Peace

Thoughtful and Soulful
I found you on number one music and I really liked Baby
Don't Say No. I had never checked the link to this site until after I heard Did I and What You Want In A Man. I know exactly what you mean on those songs as I've been there a time or two before myself! I thought maybe they were from the new cd, you should have put those up earlier! Both of these songs really stayed on my mind and now I want the CD! Im looking forward to your next cd I just hope you hurry up and put it out! Don't make us wait so long, ya my wife likes what she's heard so far too! You should update your number one site more often, I'll be checking back.


mr. kelly's originality
mr. ricardo kelly will facinate you with his wisdom. this guy is a genius with words, a master composer, and an excellent singer. he poures his heart out when it comes to song writing. his flow is smooth, his voice hypnotic. his songs are truly deep and they make you think. i must say when ricardo is recording,singing, songwriting e.t.c. he is working his magic. his originality is a gift of artistry. he has earned the name wordz. i really love that ol school touch. his cd is a breath of fresh air. my favorites are i'm changed, it's something, be mine, i wish i had you. being a true romantic this is why i enjoy dazed.

thanks ricardo

This Brother Is Deep!
I really enjoyed this cd and let me tell you I'm very picky! I saw Ricardo on audiostreet.com and downloaded this funky song called Baby Don't Say No and checked out the title song Dazed and was hooked! My lady was feeling the songs as well. To tell the truth, I think this brother must have been reading my mind as I can truly identify with some of the songs. For instance, Did I ask the question, did I let you down. Now every brother that's been in a long term relationship can relate to this. You Get What You Give, well that says it all! This song really hits you in the heart and makes you think about how you treat the one you love. Bottom line, this brother is deep and soulful. My lady and I are looking forward to the next one so that we can cuddle up again!
