What we love about this release is each time you listen to it, there’s something entirely unique about the new tune from Donovan Keith. “Cruel Fools Eye” is a soulful number that will have you reaching for a hairbrush microphone to sing into. Donovan’s uniquely vintage style combining soul, funk, and rock blends well with a variety of musical genres and his universal appeal has seen him open for acts such as Enrique Iglesias, Tower Of Power, the late Charles Bradley, Fastball, Snarky Puppy, and Erykah Badu.
Speaking about the vivid new release, Donovan shares, “Cruel Fools Eye is about the habit of chasing the things that neglect you. Sometimes we tend to be attracted to what our impression of someone is when they’re actually toxic and not good for us at all. At the same we completely ignore those who are interested in us, who see our value, and would be great for us. Having a Cruel Fools Eye means being so distracted by the toxic that you’re blind to any real connection.”
