Pew Playlist: 3 Albums That Should be On Your Radar, 10/28/16

Cris Jacobs – Dust To Gold

Baltimore-based troubadour Cris Jacobs released his second solo album, Dust To Gold, last week, and it’s a doozy. With a smooth-as-silk soulful voice and some gritty guitar work, Jacobs  conveys his rocking road-worthy stories in a way that could please any set of ears.

Marc Broussard – S.O.S. 2: Save Our Soul: Soul On A Mission 

Louisiana soul man Marc Broussard dedicated 50% of the revenue from the sale of his latest release, S.O.S. 2: Save Our Soul: Soul On A Mission, to benefit the homeless. Last summer, Broussard created The S.O.S. Foundation to disburse funds to charitable organizations that are making a difference in our world; for S.O.S. 2, the charitable partner is Atlanta-based City Of Refuge, who is making amazing efforts to get people off of the streets. The album features covers of classic soul tunes, and it’s all things divine. A stellar album for a great cause? Yes please.

 

Lindy Vopnfjord – Frozen In Time

Lindy Vopnfjörd is a proficient storyteller who distills human experience into the vital emotions that crisply and memorably define moments.  This collection of 13 songs  form the Toronto-based artist explores a vast, folk-inspired landscape ranging from light-hearted recollections to dark  tales, as he, with quiet tenderness, invites the listener in to his world of wisdom and attention to social consciousness, human rights, political oppression.
