*When R. Kelly came out with his mini-video-series of songs years ago, he opened the door for other artists to explore their creative abilities.

Now, Grammy Award winner, Philip Bailey is getting ready to release his long form music film for his new project, “Love is Real.”

The production will be released in three installments. Log onto www.philipbailey.com to watch the first one. The following two will be released Oct. 13, and 20.

“I wanted to do something outside of the mold of the traditional broadcast music video. No lip-synching. No dialogue. Just strong visuals attached to my music,” Bailey said.

“Love is Real,” is the long time Earth Wind & Fire member’s first solo project in eight years. The EP has been a passion project for Bailey, featuring five new original tracks that showcase his remarkable falsetto and multiple-octave vocal range. Lyrically, he addresses the complexities of relationships.

“Relationships are so complicated, and anything but perfect,” Bailey says, “just because you are having difficulty in a relationship doesn’t mean the love you feel in a relationship is not necessarily real.

“Love is Real” is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
