"I Thee Wed" - Jay McGee

"I Thee Wed"
Jay McGee
From the Beacon Records CD
I Hear Foot Steps 2002

As we enter June and wedding season, Jay McGee reminds us of his 2002 pledge of undying love, "I Thee Wed."

Fans of Seventies smooth soulsters such as the Spinners and Stylistics will especially dig this retro-sounding track. One can imagine a tuxedoed McGee standing at the altar, beckoning to his bride-to-be in a cool falsetto like the baddest dude of the moment.

North Carolina's Jay McGee became inspired to sing after hearing performances of quartet stars such as Sam Cooke, Lou Rawls, Johnnie Taylor and Archie Brownlee. "I Thee Wed" is on his album, I Hear Foot Steps."
