Renowned R&B flautist Jef Kearns takes us on a mesmerizing journey with a fresh take on the classic hit “Killing Me Softly with His Song.” Joining forces with Toronto-based vocalist Joanna Majoko and producer Douglas Romanow he delivers a hauntingly beautiful and modern interpretation. It is inspired by the warmth of memories and the solitude of late-night reflection.

Jef’s flute intertwines seamlessly with Mojako’s soulful vocals. His signature flute sound captivates. Although the lyrics center around a singer-songwriter playing guitar the listener feels she is singing about him. Romanow’s production creates a depth and richness that resonates long after the final note fades. The meticulous mastering of Randy Merrill (Adele, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown) adds another layer of sonic brilliance.

“I am excited to present our rendition of ‘Killing Me Softly with His Song’ to music lovers worldwide,” shares Jef Kearns. “The collaborative process has been incredible, and we are excited to share our collective vision with audiences everywhere.”

Killing Me Softly with His Song is available in standard stereo on all platforms. An immersive Dolby Atmos/Spatial Audio mix (created by Douglas Romanow at Toronto’s prestigious Massey Hall’s “Allied Music Centre”) is available on Tidal and Apple Music. The single is part of Kearns’ album Deep Cover 1970s which focuses on re-imagining classic 1970s hits with modern production and a tonne of respect to the source material.
