Free Soul Music Saturday for January 14, 2012

Welcome to Free Soul Music Saturday.

Since I’m focusing on fewer selections for the blog, I wanted to give you all some ammunition for finding your own new music online. Mine is just one of many great music blogs out there, and the following video will give you a way to find many more and fortify your hard drives with much more awesome free music.

TUTORIAL: How to Find Great New Free Music Online
Here is my tutorial on how I find new and exciting music online. Make sure you’re logged into your Google account and have your iTunes open. And then hang on, because your hard drive will never be the same. 

I was worried that by excluding podcasts, my list would consist mainly of Beat Tapes. It was great to find that’s not the case at all, as I found some excellent EPs and Singles from some pretty amazing artists. 2012 is already shaping up to be a great year from independent Soul Music. Here is my complete listening list for the week and here is my Spotify playlist.

Thanks to all the artists, producers, DJs, podcasters and music bloggers that bring this music to light!

FREE SONG-OF-THE-MONTH FOR MAY

November Rain

…and no, not the Guns & Roses song by the same name. In fact, I wrote this song long before I ever heard of that group. This song reflects the joy and loss of a romance that spans the better part of a year. If you like the mellow pop of Paul Davis, Robbie Dupri, Michael McDonald and Hall & Oates, you will this this retro 80s homage. Preview it by pressing play on the music player on the bottom of the site or on the button below.
