So far, Brother Cooley has a hit on his hands with the powerful single Higher, which happens to be a FYI Houston personal favorite. The track is upbeat and uplifting. When we first heard this track, we knew that it was on another level. Higher is a true classic that can be played on any occasion. We put this track up there with the Maze & Frankie Beverly’s Before I Let You Go. Yes, it’s that good. Now Cooley is working on a new album entitled Today We Live. We are definitely anticipating the release of that project. Stay tuned with FYI Houston for the release date.
Success is a journey not a destination, and on the journey we must follow the path of righteous living.” -Cooley Kimble
