Ian Kelly - Soul of a Man (produced by Eric G.)

d

 Grand Nationxl/JAMLA recording artist Ian Kelly keeps his foot on the gas with "Soul of a Man", fresh off of last December's collaboration release of "Zion V: The Ballad of Charles Douthit" the latest installment in a series from the JAMLA records General 9th Wonder. "Soul of a Man" is a selection from Ian Kelly's upcoming project "Kells is D.E.A.D" (Determined Evolving Ascending Destined). Reminiscent of 1991's De La Soul album titled "De La Soul is Dead", Kelly is using his art to show his transformation/evolution where as the 3 Plugs refer to the death of the "D.A.I.S.Y." (Da Inner Sound, Y'all) age, or a distancing from several cultures including hippies and mainstream Hip Hop. The sound scape for "Soul of a Man" stays in the JAMLA camp with producer and Soul Council member Eric G representing Seattle respectively. Eric David Gabouer, better known as producer Eric G, has been working with Rapsody and JAMLA Records for close to a decade.  Stay tuned for more from Ian Kelly and keep an eye out for "Kells is D.E.A.D." dropping 1-29-21.
