“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

B. SLADE released several hundred songs on 24 albums over a span of 14 years, while producing several others for both gospel and secular artists. He has won six Stellar Awards, a GMA Award, and received 2 Grammy nominations: one for Best Soul Gospel Album for his 2004 gold album, Out The Box and another in 2009 for Best Urban/Soul Alternative Performance for his single, Blend, from his 2009 mainstream album, Unspoken.

His musical efforts have been known to blend a smorgasbord of styles, including pop, r&b, jazz, soul, funk, hip hop, rock, latin, electro, punk and trance, and has created a distinct sound and eclectic style of music.
