Making New Music Old Again! 

Hello friends!  We'd like to thank you for stopping by our site.  If this is your first time exploring our site...welcome!  If you've been here before...welcome back!

We'd like to know where you go to listen or find music.  Do you listen to the radio?  Internet radio?  Sirius radio in your car?  We think vinyl rules but if Spotify is your thing we have a new playlist that we just curated called Vintage Vibes which you can find here.  We're discovering lots of great artists who make music steeped in the great sounds of the 50's, 60's and onward.  That's why we're saying, "Making New Music Old Again!"  We'd love to share this new playlist with you where, along with some Muscle Souls tunes you will find many other like minded artists who are lovingly preserving the spirit of the great sounds of the past.  Whether you love old R'n B, Pop or Soul you're sure to discover some great new songs to add to your own playlist. We'd love for you to follow Muscle Souls on Spotify so we can keep you posted and stay connected! 

So, make a classic cocktail or pop a cork and listen to Muscle Souls Vintage Vibes playlist on Spotify!




Happy 2020 from Muscle Souls! 

Happy New Year Friends!

Can you believe we're now well into the "new" millennium?  We're not really new years resolution types but the start of a year is certainly a good time for to think about things we want to achieve in the coming year.  For 2020 Muscle Souls want to provide our friends more content!  Some of you know that we halted our regular live shows so we could focus on recording our first full-length album.  Not at all satisfied with the recording results and having lost momentum during that lengthy process, we had to re-think our strategy.  We decided instead to release a series of singles to try and gradually rebuild interest in Muscle Souls.  The first four singles have been released and are even emblazoned on a coffee mug available in our shop! We have assembled some great people to work with like the legendary Tim Bovaconti (recording/musician), talented mixer Josh Bowman, Grammy nominated mastering engineer João Carvalho and fabulous drummer Marito Marques (see below) and hope to continue working with them in 2020.  We even set up our own small studio so we could have greater creative control of our music!

Please join us on our musical journey this coming year by following us on your favourite social media platform or on Youtube!  Thanks to all our supporters this past year and we hope to share more music with you and new friends in 2020!

Official Video - The Don't Fall in Love with Me Talk 

Last year we had the good fortune of spending some time in Denmark.   While in Copenhagen, we visited Tivoli Gardens which is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world.   This beautiful setting inspired us to use it as a visual backdrop for "The Don't Fall in Love with Me Talk" track which we were in the process of editing and remixing.   So, on that lovely summer day, armed with only an iPhone and zero expertise, we set about capturing the magical surroundings of this 175 year-old landmark.   The next task was getting Nicole to lip sync in a busy park...

We Laughed - New Single Radio Release! 

Muscle Souls is ushering in Fall with a new single release!  "We Laughed" will have it's radio debut on DJ Penny Lane's show Punks in Parkas!  You may remember Penny debuted our single, "The Don't Fall in Love with Me Talk" on her show back in July.  This time Penny is ready to debut the new single exclusively on her show!  

We're especially fond of this song and think it's one or our best.  The song was composed by John and Nicole and The Sharp Set alumnus Sean Murphy.  If you heard our interview with Penny (scroll down this page for the link) you might recall we mentioned Sean's ability to create lovely melodies.  On this tune Sean contributed the music for the verses while John supplied the melody for the chorus and middle eight sections.  The lyrics were penned by both John and Nicole and reflect their own experience but will surely be relatable to most everyone.  

The song will debut exclusively on Penny's Punks in Parkas show on Thursday, October 24 at 9pm CDT/8pm EDT!  Click here to listen online!  Remember the show broadcasts from Winnipeg, Canada so check your time zone if you want to tune in to the live broadcast.  This is the fundraising show for this nonprofit station, so please contribute if you can.  Don't worry if you miss it because you can always listen to the podcast...just follow this link.



For the Love of Mod - Tokyo 

It's Throwback Thursday!  As TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) is in full swing, we were reminded of how nice it was to have a Muscle Souls song featured in a special documentary film called,  "For the Love of Mod - Tokyo".  This is the second of two docs about Mod music and culture made by Emma-Rosa Dias and her own Afro-Mic Productions.  Muscle Souls is never bashful about our Mod roots and we were honoured to have a track featured on the official soundtrack.  You can listen to all the tracks from the embedded player above or download the songs here.  Here is the link to the trailer of this charming film! 

New Stuff in Store! 

To celebrate the release of our new singles we added a limited edition "Is My Love Killing You?" mug to our store!  You'll definitely be the cool kid at your home or office with one of these!  As a bonus, you'll get a free download of the single with purchase!  We have lots of Muscle Souls stuff in our store (some new and not so new) including original Muscle Souls t-shirts, gig posters, and promo posters which we can autograph for you!  Don't worry if you don't have a PayPal account, the store accepts major credit cards through the PayPal service too.  Click on this link or just click on the "store" button in our menu.
