PERFORMANCE WILL TAKE PLACE ON – KISS FM Stage located at 5th Avenue on 135th Street, Harlem NY promptly at 5:30pm.
B. SLADE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR IN-PERSON INTERVIEWS
“DIESEL” is a mix of R&B, pop, soul, funk, hip hop, rock and electro and music critics have said “this is B. Slade’s most accomplished work yet, genre busting, bold and vibrant”, “this is an album of power, strength, resilience and liberation all under the umbrella of freedom. Lyrically this album is impeccable. Vocally he soars”. But for B. Slade, ‘DIESEL’ is dedicated to the forerunners and strong black men in the civil rights, entertainment and hip hop culture. Diesel runs in our blood, it’s about the tenacity to continue and press through oppositions even when you want to give up and say you're going to give in, there's something in you that won't let you and that is your DIESEL. No matter what race or orientation you might be, don't ever lose your Diesel, this is what the album is all about.”

Although some may recognize him from the gospel world, in a recent 10-page article "The New Yorker Magazine" described B. SLADE as "His eccentric style and vertiginous high notes helped make him one of the most acclaimed praise singers of the past decade, and, for a time, one of the most successful. He had a certain hip-hop swagger and the status of a sex symbol." ---The New Yorker
