With a socially conscious edge, urban soul juggernaut MOKA SOUL produces cool grooves and fluid sounds with strong songwriting at its central core.
Sultry vocal powerhouse Pauline Houston presents a style that many attempt but few achieve -- bringing a new plateau for the new Soul movement. This is the real thing, taking you from smoky smooth ballads to edgy incantations of sistergirl soul.
Guitarist/Producer Robb McCall lays out the luscious web of velvet sounds that beckons you with funky, fiery vibrations of rhythm and melody. Studio multi-instrumentalist McCall plays rhythm and lead guitar with a fluid versatility and a uniquely emotional style.
MOKA SOUL's recordings feature McCall's innovative and exploratory production. Recorded and mixed at his Charging Bull Studio in Philadelphia, his arrangements set the songs in alternate atmospheres which reveal their true beauty and honesty.
MOKA SOUL's live show is a spectacle to behold and a genuine adventure.
Lay back and enjoy the ride that grooves you and feeds you, saying “Drink me! Smoke me!”
The MOKA SOUL sound is influenced by The Classic Philly Soul sound, the Motown Sound, the Stax/Volt Sound, Marvin Gaye, Mahalia Jackson, Curtis Mayfield, Gladdys Knight, Acid Jazz, Hip-Hop, Latin, Reggae and World Music.
MOKA SOUL is coming up from the roots... brewing and blending a new sound for new times. MOKA SOUL SMOKES!
