Sounds of A&R (S.O.A.R.) is the brainchild of vocalist April May & Trumpeter Randall Haywood. Partners in music and life, April and Randall have come together creating a distinct sound that fuses aspects of Contemporary Jazz, Soul, R&B, and Gospel influences. S.O.A.R. has been described as the modern day Ashford and Simpson, pulling inspiration from the deep love they have for one and other and expressing that love through beautifully crafted compositions.
