The Mighty Soulmates is a towering early 90s project from the legitimate super group of André Cymone (bass player with Prince), St. Paul Peterson (keyboard player in The Time and lead singer in Prince”Ēs group The Family), Mic Murphy (of Sass and The System fame) and Gardner Cole (writer, producer and musician probably best known for his work with Madonna). The sound is a majestic blend of sophisticated funk, emotional R&B, New Jack Swing flava and slick deep soul. These should-be legendary sessions have been almost a secret since they were recorded back in 1993. The first Be With knew about the project was whilst working with Mic on some Sass re-issues and he told us he had something else we might be interested in hearing. Mic explained, ”ČIn the summer of 1993, Gardner Cole asked if I”Ēd be interested in coming out to work with him, André, and St. Paul. So we all headed out to what can best be described as a fantasy music summer camp at Gardner”Ēs house in Woodland Hills, California. We had all worked together in the past in some form or another so everyone was energized and enthused and excited to see what we could create together. St Paul and Andre had already begun some songwriting at Gardner”Ēs well equipped home garage studio. The songs and ideas progressed quickly and some additional recording was completed at André Cymone”Ēs studio in downtown LA. We ended up working on the project for about 6 months, off and on, until Gardner”Ēs house fell victim to the Northridge Earthquake in January 1994.
