Mortal Soul - Live at Club Above
This is the story of love, genius, creativity, passion, and truth.
No matter where you're from its all about love.
Music from the heart, from that place that makes you sing, dance laugh, cry and believe. The amazingness of the human spirit is alive and available in the songs of Mortal Soul. This musical journey takes you from Blue Grass and the Appalachian meth labs to 70s soul and mainlining in a New York City alley, then sets you free to the feeling of a Gospel Church, a Buddhist temple and the afterparty at my cousin Talib's house in New Orleans.
