SoulMusic Records-Digital in association with Platinum Garage Recordings is exceptionally proud to present “Ready for Anything,” by legendary vocalist Russell Thompkins, Jr. Named within the Top 200 singers of all time by Rolling Stone, Russell’s iconic sound has been heard for decades as the lead singer on the classic recordings by The Stylistics including “Betcha By Golly Wow,” “You Make Me Feel Brand New” and “You Are Everything” among others, produced by the late Thom Bell.
Produced and written by award-winning legendary music man Preston Glass and Christian Belnavis, “Ready for Anything” is a beautiful emotive ballad that is reminiscent of the much-loved Philly Soul sound of the ’70s that Russell and The Stylistics helped pioneer and which continues to resonate with today’s listeners worldwide.
Chris Rizik of Soul Tracks describes “Ready for Anything” as “harkening to the romantic vibes of the greatest hits by The Stylistics…and is a ready-made wedding song about a couple that has already been through a lot of ups and downs, and has only been strengthened by the experiences.”
