Cherries Records proudly presents "Feels So Right b/w Love’s Gone Wrong", the new 7” limited edition release by Chicago producer and artist Cermakk & Doug Shorts. This is Cherries Records’ first release and official launch of the Chicago based label.
After a chance visit to a record store where Cermakk randomly found and purchased a Doug Shorts 45 on vinyl, the two eventually forged a musical friendship beginning in Doug’s basement a.k.a. “Funkland”. It was in Funkland where the future sound of Cherries Records was created, the sound of the intertwining of modern r&b/funk beats with the romanticism of classic lyrics and smooth, soulful vocals.
Chicago’s own up and coming producer/songwriter Cermakk has been creating original songs and beats since the 90s. His new sound digs into a modern R&B sound with a late 80s/early 90s vibe, which caught the ears of executives at Cherries Records, and created his first official production appearance on vinyl.
ABOUT DOUG SHORTS
Singer and songwriter Doug Shorts has been singing since the late 60s, and withholds a bounty of amazing material that he’s written over the past 40 years. He began singing in his early teens with harmony groups such as The Visitors, Shades of Brown, and The James Clark Band. He released several records on his own labels with his funk outfit Masterplan Inc. Doug Shorts’ vocal style reflects a distinct Chicago flavor, as he sings smooth, polished, and deeply soulful songs in the style of local favorites Curtis Mayfield and Lenny Williams.
