Born in New Orleans where he performed till his death Tommy Ridgley sang soul all his life. I think he didn’t get the publicity for his music he deserved but when we listen to songs like “In The Same Old Way” we keep his art alive.
Two version of Tommy Ridgley’s “In The Same Old Way”
Tommy Ridgley has a voice you could listen to for hours. Soft, soulful and touching. The song “In The Same Old Way” is a personal favorite. Cool is also that there a two different version on youtube. The first one is built on a reggae rhythm, a connection to the Carribean. The other digs more into a soul arrangement. Both version beautiful for its vocals.
