Promoting new Soul Rock Record – Some words about the new album

Band Add comments

Ok so here it is my new record Soul Rock. I am going to try and talk about it so you all can relate by creating this blog. This blogging thing is new to me. But I guess it’s a good way to make a connection and let people know what’s going on with you or in this case me. So, what is Soul Rock all about? Why should people listen, even care about this record? All good questions and for me I don’t really have a good answer except…I think its good music. I mean music with a purpose I guess, real instruments real people creating and thinking and vibing together to come up with a cohesive message through music and melody.

Ok maybe this approach is too heady. It’s the feelings. Somber, frustrated disappointed at yourself at times. And music can help you release these emotions. That’s what is has done for me.

This is not an uplifting album, sorry to say. But I was not in a particular uplifting mood in the last few years that this record was created and even longer than that for some of the songs that were written. But I do think it can speak to people who have gone through strife and plain ole bad sh*t in their lives but are still reaching and striving to be positive and more forward.

So for now if you are interested in music that can move you get into your bones and soul, I think you will dig this record. Not just a song or two cause I think this record is at its best when you listen to the whole album in one sitting. You know with headphones on dark lighting and a beer or two or maybe a good glass of wine. Something to vibe to and get into, kinda like a funkadelic experience, but veers off course into a little rock, country funk and soul.

I’ll have the full record available by November 11th at CDbaby, iTunes for download and local Amoeba and Rasputin record shops in the Bay Area. Hopefully we can get this soul rock movement going and spread the distribution out but we have to wait and see. So for an appetizer I am putting out some of the cuts from the record for you to love, hate, ignore or whatever.

Skarlet Stew is my raw and uncut jam. Recorded on my Akai DPS12i at home this track is honest, gritty and raw! Hope you guys dig the vibe and emotion. You know how it is…sometimes your just mad as hell at yourself and just want F@&# some sh*t up. But next is Lost Child which is how I also feel like I just don’t know what’s going on and how to hold it together.

Check it out for yourself and if you want to let me know what you think that would be cool.

Peace out for now.

Kofy
