“When I performed the piece with them, my eyes were always closed, so I didn’t realize people were crying it until I opened my eyes to take my bow.” In the studio, Chambers kept his eyes closed and captured the same raw emotion he delivered on stage. As a result, the song includes what is arguably one of Chambers’ most stunning vocal performances to date. “When I recorded it, there was no one else in the studio: just me alone with my emotions. This cover is my tribute to the music I love most: 70’s soul music. There’s no period of music more intimate to me.”
Recorded in New York City, the album flaunts a fresh, new approach to Chambers’ trademark songwriting style. “I have songs that have come to be known as the traditional Gordon Chambers sound,” he explains. “What I do is a very mature, crafted kind of storytelling with big harmonies. But sometimes that sounds more interesting when it’s juxtaposed with something with a different rhythmic edge.” In direct contrast to his critically acclaimed 2005 debut Introducing Gordon Chambers and its dynamic follow up Love Stories (2007)—which featured the adult contemporary hit duet “To Love Again” with four-time nominated Ledisi–lyrically Sincere embodies a more in-depth, up-close and personal tone that captures a rare vulnerable side of Chambers. “Love Stories was a different kind of album in such that it was me being a songwriter reflecting on love and relationships. Sincere is much more honest. I’m a very sincere person and artist. A lot of people feel like a lot of music is focused on the selling of an image rather than what’s in a person’s heart.”

For the more time-honored fans of Chambers’ ballads, Sincere offers a few gems that gracefully balance the energetic mid- and up tempos. His unplugged rendition of his classic anthem “Missing You” (originally recorded by Brandy, Tamia, Gladys Knight, and Chaka Khan for the 1995 Set It Off soundtrack) is transformed into a tribute to two of his late mentors: R&B legends Phyllis Hyman and Gerald Levert. Chambers decided to include the song after rehearsing the song at a sound check for a recent performance at the Capital Jazz Festival. “I got very emotional, broke down and had to stop,” he admits. “I realized I was missing Phyllis, and how proud she would have been of me. She taught me a lot of things and introduced me to people who changed my life. I also thought of Gerald, who was really like a big brother to me in the industry. I recorded that song as a tribute to both of them, since they always encouraged me not just to write, but sing.” Another live performance inspired Chambers to record the late Donny Hathaway’s classic “A Song for You”. At the behest of the New York City-based Evidence Dance Company, Chambers was commissioned to perform the song in tandem with choreographer Ron Brown.
