Soul Singer, songwriter actor and preserver of the Negro Spiritual, Jonathan Blanchard has successfully released his first studio album entitled “Freedom’s Soul…..the REVOLUTION”. Freedom’s Soul was recorded with live musicians in Memphis, TN and Atlanta, GA.
Brought forth from the historical roots of Memphis, Freedom’s Soul, is easily one of today’s most dynamic and powerful musical works. A culmination of musical genres, steeped in soul music and lessons learned. With an inspiring message and originality, Freedom’s Soul “takes you there”, with every song. There is truth, pureness and clarity in the message, and simple genius within the compositions. This album is a fusion of Soul, Funk, Jazz, Spirituals, and R&B. “As a creative spirit, your creations will either manifest freedom or bondage in the souls of those who bare witness”. Blanchard would describe his lyrical content as simply being “Honest”. The genius is in the commonality and practicality of how he expresses his views on an array of subject matter. Blanchard is heavily influenced by Memphis Artist who preceded him such as EWF, The Bar-Kays, Isaac Hayes, and WC Handy…who also maintained a since of being current and relevant.
