14 ‘New Old Soul’ Acts You Need to Hear Right Now

The artists are from varied races and backgrounds, having one thing in common: Soul.

Mike Wheeler Is A Self Made Man

Wheeler is from the school of "I will let my guitar do the talking." He knows when to let loose, and when to let things breathe a bit. He does not try to impress with a million notes in 12 bars. All his playing makes sense, is for the betterment of the song, and every note belongs right where he plays it.

Trampled Under Foot Reunion a Street Party With 1,200 Guests

They were honest-to-goodness glad to be together and to perform for the people for whom their family had played for generations. That's how it is with family. That's how it is with Trampled Under Foot.

Ronnie Earl's "Father's Day" Is the Pinnacle of Self Realization

Each track is better than the one that came before it, and the cumulative effect on listeners is staggering.

Ann Peebles was born in East St. Louis. Her father ran a church, and she grew up singing in his congregation. As a member of the Peebles Choir. Not just your average church singing group—they opened shows for gospel greats like Mahalia Jackson and Sam Cooke...

Despite Brutal On-Stage Assault, Lester Chambers Preaches Love

On Saturday, Lester Chambers was brutally assaulted on stage after dedicating a song to Trayvon Martin. While trying to make sense of senseless violence is the question, he believes love is the answer.

The Infinite Cool of the Legendary Dr. John

When musical legend Dr. John walks into a room, the air electrifies. The charisma-laden native son of New Orleans talks about seeing it all & learning right from "the best there was." As a result, he might just be the coolest cat in the music industry.

Pam Taylor Band Cooks Up A "Hot Mess"

"Hot Mess" by The Pam Taylor Band, is pretty well rounded ... The band offers up their version of "I'd Rather Go Blind," and we were moved by its smokey, sultry, and seductive delivery. Another delicious cut is "I Ain't The One," with its rhythm guitar driven funkin' blues lines - savory indeed!

The Soul of John Black Is In A Sunshine State of Mind

TSOJB's last outing, Good Thang, was a great mix of blues tinged, soul and funk influenced joy. A Sunshine State of Mind, on Yellow Dog Records, is TSOJB's 5th release. This album is a huge leap forward; it is more focused, concise, and much, much tighter!
