On this week’s episode of the SoulBack R&B podcast, we bring in Tao Soprano formerly of the R&B group Dru Hill. Although he may not be an original member of the group, he spent over ten years with the group and definitely made an impact with his vocals. We talk to him about his new solo endeavor, the transition from being in a group to solo as well find out his origins with Dru Hill. We also get some perspective from him on what it’s like to join a group as a non-original member. Lots of wisdom is spilled on this podcast!
