The Best New Soul on Bandcamp: November 2017

Each month, Bandcamp brings you the best soul music the site has to offer. Whether it’s poignant social commentary from Aaron Abernathy, or an unearthed gem from Jackie Shane, these selections set a reflective tone for November’s cold nights. Warm blanket and comfort food optional.

Deva Mahal, Deva Mahal
Deva Mahal might be a soul musician, but the depth of her experience—having grown up as the daughter of blues legend Taj Mahal—comes out strong in her debut triad of songs. Mahal doesn’t mince words. On the edgy “Run Deep,” she sings, “It doesn’t matter what they think of me, I don’t do it ‘cause it’s trendy.” Then, on “Take a Giant Step,” Mahal encourages listeners to move on from lingering hurt and despair. Her voice sounds full and robust; her words spin negativity to hope and prosperity.
