Another Single Release! 

Hello Friends!

On Sunday, December 2 we released the second of our series of new singles, "I Don't Know What Makes Me".  More of a rocker than the soul grooving style of "Is My Love Killing You?" the new single has an infectious guitar riff to anchor the song throughout.  John takes the vocal lead on this song which touches on the remorse of bad behaviour with the assurance that love is still strong.  This is our second exclusive release to Alan May's Glory Boy Mod Radio Show broadcast from 6Towns Radio UK!  You can tune in any Sunday at 6pm UK roast beef time or 1pm for our local Toronto area hangover brunch time!  If you want to catch up and hear what Alan had to say about us and hear the song in context of some Mod faves...you can listen to the Glory Boy podcast by clicking the highlighted text!  It was a great show!

"I Don't Know What Makes Me" is now ready for a set your own price download here on our site!   iTunes download will be available soon so please watch this space for announcements!

KTF!

More Music Coming! 

Hello Friends!

Here's the latest...from Muscle Souls

In October 2018 we released, "Is My Love Killing You?" the first of a series of new singles!  The song debuted on The Glory Boy Mod Radio Show in the UK which has a dedicated following of listeners into Mod, Mod Revival, Soul, Northern Soul and all manner of music inspired by those glorious sounds!  If you missed the show you can still catch up by listening to the podcast version.  Our friends Penny Lane and Wayne Lundqvist Ford also played us on their shows Punks in Parkas out of Canada and the Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More out of Sweden.  Their podcasts are also archived so, click on their names if you want to dig a little deeper into the scene!  Some shows out of the US have featured us as well including the Music Authority and The Basement Tapes.

The song is still available from this site here where you can set your own price but is also now available on iTunes.  There's even an audio version on YouTube which will hold a place until we have time to make a video!  Spotify listeners can check out our new playlist called, "Soul for the Road" featuring the new single alongside some of the great tunes we love!

Meanwhile we're getting ready to release the next single, "I Don't Know What Makes Me".  We'll be announcing a date for this little rocker soon!  Just scroll down to see the artwork!

Stay well,

Muscle Souls recording update... 

In case this is your first visit to our site, I’ll bring you up to speed… 

It was nearly impossible to schedule Muscle Souls gigs this past year as I was constantly on tour with The Beatlemanics (where I play the role of John Lennon).  But all was not lost as Nicole and I found time to write new songs and review existing material in order to plan the next recording.  The new record will have 11 original songs and is a tribute to the “wall of sound” pop of the 60s and Philly Soul sound of the early 70s…you get where we’re coming from?  That music was lush, soulful and infectiously sweet!   

You may know that Nicole loves singing close harmonies but at our live shows people are always delighted when we feature Nicole on lead vocals.  I’m excited to tell you that Nicole will be moving into the spotlight on this album not only contributing as a songwriter, but also singing lead on two of what are sure to be standout tracks!  

This is an ambitious project and we’re still planning how to get the music to the stage for the most impact.  Future shows will include intimate acoustic shows as we’ve always done, but we will be bringing the band back to the stage as well as we grow. 

Stay tuned to the latest Muscle Souls by filling out the contact form on this site and we’ll send you a free music download!   

We can’t wait to share the new music with you but meanwhile, you can check out our gallery or follow us on Instagram where we've already posted photos and video clips to whet your appetite.

New Muscle Souls T-shirt design 

We'd like to let you know about some new Muscle Souls merchandise we're offering to celebrate our upcoming record.  As you know, we've been hard at work recording our first full length album!  Although there's still a lot of work to be done, we're very excited about this record and can't wait to share the music with all of you!

In the meantime, we're offering a brand new T-shirt design (see below) to jump start our campaign to promote the album.  Inspired by a track on the new record, "Love is Best", we had a talented young designer Francesca Morreale design a beautiful summer of love inspired logo to capture the beauty and optimism of this song.  The tricolour design will be printed on the front of high quality cotton t-shirts, (with our name on the back) and will be available at our online store for $30. 

We've chose three background colours and would like to know which colour you like best!  Click here to take the survey on our store page!

We need to get 50 reserve orders before our store goes live.  Please contact us at info@musclesouls.com or on our Facebook page so we can reserve one for you!  And, don't forget to let us know if you have a special size preference so we can make sure to have those ones in stock! 

(Please note the type over the logo is strictly to prevent it being copied and won't appear on the printed product.)
 

Fighting for the Good - Songs in the "first person" 

Our song “For the Good”
  
Muscle Souls songs are always written in "first person" because in order to move forward you need to reflect on yourself.  Try not to preach and blame or tell others how to be.  Decide how you want to be and be that.  As Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” 
  
If that makes sense to you, please share the link.  Every positive change starts within you.  And keep fighting for the good.

MUSCLE SOULS 日本で使用できるようになりました! 

Why is the headline in Japanese?  We're happy to announce that Muscle Souls music is now available in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea through Taiwan based digital music service, KKBox.  Muscle Souls already has a few fans in Japan since we were featured in the documentary film For the Love of Mod - Tokyo but it will be interesting to see if we can gain some traction in this huge music market now that downloads are available from a Japanese language site!  Hopefully Muscle Souls can even do a tour of Japan!  Wish us luck!

Muscle Souls in Studio to Record Next Album! 

Muscle Souls is excited to announce that we have started recording a new full length album!

Over the past year, we've been busy writing songs and refining some of our live-show favourites for this new project.  This will be our biggest and best production to date and we're happy to welcome Ryan Granville-Martin to the producers chair.  With Ryan's experience in producing and arranging, we're sure to deliver great new music from Muscle Souls.

Yesterday and today are full days of pre-production as we map out song structures, melody, chords and tempos for our cast of musicians who will bring the songs to life.
