One of the biggest releases ever on Soul Step Records was the landmark record from Brian Owens, “Soul of Cash.” Needing multiple represses to keep up with the demand, it made sense that the latest offering from Soul Step Records comes from the Soulman from St. Louis – Brian Owens.
Soul Step Records proudly announces SSR-054, Brian Owens & The Deacons of Soul with “Soul of Ferguson.” This LP is jam packed with Brian Owens’ unique Throwback St. Louis soul with a Motown touch.
Soul music is something that is hard to define, but it’s instantly recognizable when you hear it. All it takes to hear the soul is to drop the needle on this vinyl. This album has such a charging rhythm section, driving horns, and front and center is Brian Owens’ magnetic voice. As a bonus, Michael McDonald from The Doobie Brothers even lends vocals to this album.
This album resonates LOVE. Songs about our lovers, our children, our family, and our community. There is so much room for love in the world, and Brian Owens and The Deacons of Soul bring that needed feeling on every single track of this LP.
