Black Tulip are dedicated lovers of the legendary “Paradise Garage” sound and they are a true example of today’s urban club culture: “Groovemaster” Johnson (UK), Rik Zwaan and Bob Pieck (NL), Joseph Salvador a.k.a. Zé Salvador, José Salvador (P, NL) and on vocals Wendell Morrison and Marian Rolle (USA) who’s voices is music history. Although their roots lay so dispersed, it is within the core of today’s club scene they met.

Profound songs with deep bass heavy grooves, soul embracing vocals and powerful emotional Hammond organ and Strings arrangements are the Black Tulip trademarks.

Black Tulip’s first release “Jam on it” was a well acclaimed club track reviewed in many international magazines and it reached a place in several dance charts.

Their second release “A Song Of Love (In Times Of War)” is a 120 bpm Garage strider pulsating a positive love and peace message with abrasive Hammond organ in compulsive replies to Wendell’s vocals it sings of love in times of war, a dream that we should all work together to make come true.

In the UK, broadcast of this song has been banned from national airplay (1992, Gulf War) and was played exclusively in the underground scene. “A Song Of Love (In Times Of War)” may be have been doomed from Radio One and mainstream acceptance but it was certainly well alive and kicking in the clubs, sound systems and in the UK underground scene.

Wendell Morrison was born in New Jersey, USA. On his career he sang on records made by Coati Mundi, Inner Life, Jocelyn Brown, Loleatta Holloway, Arthur Baker, Culture Club, Bruce Springsteen and many other renowned artists.
Marian Rolle was born, raised and educated in Miami, USA. She studied singing, dance and drama. In the past Marian worked on numerous recordings with artists such as Jocelyn Brown and Divine.
