Pure: Reflections of Self & Beyond[CD]
His words stir emotion with a voice filled with soul and truth. Original Soul is a man blessed with a gift to reach into your heart and enlighten your mind with his realism and insight. In a watered-down era of rap music, Original Soul stands out with his lyrical skills and fearless approach to topics rarely discussed by the majority of artists considered 'successful'. His versatility is unparalleled, easily transitioning between rap and song with comparisons to D'Angelo and Mos Def, although he lists names like KRS-One, Guru, Talib Kweli, The Roots, and Common when asked of his influences. He has the rare talent and ability to take a club crowded full of hardcore Hip-Hop heads and have them all singing along to a song that is built around the topic of homelessness. It's funny to hear him tell the story of when he was booed off stage at a High School talent show when you witness the connection he makes with crowds today. To meet Original Soul is refreshing. There is no gimmick, no flash, and no swagger. He is humble and has a pure personality that is so amazingly unique that the moniker Original Soul is truly befitting. Original Soul is a native of Dallas Texas and has long worked with local artists on many levels. He has recorded 9 albums to his credit, with 'Pure' being his most recent work. He has produced tracks for numerous artists, along with producing the music score for the Soul Rep Theatre Company's stage play 'Noxide Square' (2002) which received stellar reviews from critics for the Dallas Morning News and Ft. Worth Star-Telegram. He has appeared on several mixtapes including 'NOMMO: Lyrical Alchemy Vol.1', 'Scremix Vol. 1', The 1,000 Mile Dash Series, and 'Dude Where's My Shades (M.A.R.Z. Mixtape) vol. 2'. Original Soul has a unique sound with subject matter built around topics that his community can and should relate to. Positive with the edge of street sense and honesty...Original Soul is the truth.
