True Groove All-Stars, headed up by producer/singer-songwriter and guitarist Tomás Doncker, have released a cover of Nick Lowe’s 1970s classic, “What’s So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding”. Founder of the True Groove record label, Doncker is a music icon in and of himself, getting his start in the NYC No-Wave movement of the 1980s. This track is Doncker’s example of an uplifting tune in time for the holidays. His record label True Groove just teamed up with music company the Orchard and has a number of newly released material and more on the way from artists such as Joe Bowie and James Chance.

Doncker is a proponent of the self-proclaimed movement Global Soul: the sound of our collective conscious. “The unified rhythm of heart beats creating a positive, spiritually uplifting force for good. Musically speaking it is not genre specific, but in fact genre inclusive. It is the best of what we have to offer to each other, from Brooklyn to Ethiopia, and every where in Between.” Wise words from a true musician. Stream the track below and check out other True Groove releases here.
