Soul Butter Station vol. 4 (Captured “live”/Isla Vista Worship)

Although I am already an avid fan of acoustic sets, I find myself in a deeper level of musical euphoria when gospocentric stories of grace are linked into the melody. This describes my exact experience when I recently heard Mark Bowen’s (of Isla Vista Worship) live performance of their new single, “Captured.”

Soul Butter Station vol. 3 (PJ Morton ft. JoJo/Say So)

I came to know of PJ Morton during Kirk Franklin’s “The Rebel, the Soul, and the Saint tour”. Although he was the opening act for Ledisi and Kirk, I was quickly sold on his rich voice and his ability to work the keys like a church boy straddling the fence between the church and the world.

Soul Butter Station vol. 1 (Deliver Me-This is my Exodus)

Although taste varies from person to person, I’ve yet to meet somebody whose life has not been cataclysmically changed by an encounter with a lyric and/or melody, that wiggled its way into their soul. In fact, some musical masterpieces wake us up like the smell of a grandma’s kitchen, as she bakes homemade buttermilk biscuits, on a Saturday morning.
