Soul Mother

by Charles Milling

Over-the-top Fusion-pop. Rhythms that rattle your spine, harmony that floats, words to spin in your head for days. Mind-blowing musicianship entrenched in a poetic, unflinching new form of song.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born and raised in New Orleans, Charles Milling grew up feeling time backwards. Rock and Pop had conviction and smack yet lacked a backbeat...so he superimposed it in his imagination. Folk and Classical lacked smack and jam, so he re-did the pieces he liked to his own drum tracks and bass lines. Jazz chord changes were exquisite but needed kick and snare to move them along. Funk songs had pocket but often trite lyrical content. Thus, Charles Milling has been creating his own form of songwriting and arranging that is his own version of 'perfection' from the age of ten.

At sixteen years of age, Charles had found his drummer, bassist and pianist... it just took him seven years to pluck up the courage to ask them to play his music. These guys played time just like his songs were intended to be played. They also played with a vibrance and exuberance most first-rate musicians would turn their noses up at.

Four years after their first concert together at the Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans, the band finally has its first release: 'Soul Mother'. If you are open to a new form of music that is uninhibited, glad, unhinged, poetic and ecstatic, then you've come to the right place...

Love it!
This CD is just excellent music all around. Charles Milling is a talented fellow and has obviously surrounded himself with equally talented musicians to make this CD. I love the harmonies and the rhythm that seems to run through the entire album. Buy it now and get one for your mom- she will love it too!
