I'm not sure which camp the Sam Dees one falls into. Nice soulful voice but the music borrows somewhat from eastern europe/middle east.
Angie Stone, on the other hand, is fabulous.
A lot of the true Soulheads shudder at this track but I likey a lot.
Sam Dees, made a few great tracks on the Northern Soul scene

Since the sad demise a few years ago of Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, both on the Daptone label, Colemine Records seems to stepping up to the plate  of late especially with this new release It's Only Us by Monophonics. An old sounding, old school soul LP presented in an old style heavy cardboard tip-on sleeve with powerhouse vocals by (the white - see above posts ) Kelly Finnegan .

Also, I must mention last year's American Love Call by Durand Jones And The Indications, also on Colemine Records, and one of my top 5 albums from 2019. Saw them live at Nile Rogers' curated Meltdown Festival at London's Southbank last August and they we're brilliant.  Like the Monophonics, they have that old school vibe with vocals shared by the more typical soul voice of Durand Jones and the falsetto of drummer Aaron Frazer (white again - who would have thought?!).

If you like soul music both are worthy of your hard-earned.
Durand Jones are like a real mix of early/mid 70s funk soul and then some really modern soul with a 70s twist.
Outstanding music imho

I'm not familiar with Sam Dees. I'll have to look him up. :^

Over recent days I've been playing a lot of Smokey Robinson. He seems to go under the radar.
