We would all simply call it “great music” but when it comes down to it, it’s just soul or J-S.O.U.L., if you will. With strong influences from the great gospel quartets such as the Williams Brothers along with the Mighty Clouds of Joy, Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, and Musiq SoulChild, J-S.O.U.L. can be recognized by a unique groove that has redefined soul music, as we know it.
