I find myself coming back to soul music for 2 big reasons; the way it digs at you deep in your gut (you know what I’m talking about) and how much I feel like I can relate to the lyrics behind it. Soul music brings the musician and the listener just one step closer than most music in my eyes. Alternative Soul artist Joe Marson is no different, with his breakout hit “No Retreat” instantly catching my attention and Electric Soul Magic Vol. II, coming out April 14, 2017. In the midst of preparing for the record release, we asked Joe to tell us about what music inspires him and share a custom LP Collective Playlist so that we may be inspired as well! Check out his response and follow the Spotify Playlist below!
