LOS ANGELES, CA | MARCH 9, 2017: Los Angeles-based alternative soul rocker Joe Marson has made waves with the release of his latest tracks, “No Retreat” and the politically-fueled, “Explore/Explode,” leaving fans anticipating his next big move. Today, Marson is answering that call as he announces the official release date of his forthcoming EP, Electric Soul Magic Vol. II, set for April 14, 2017. The second installment in a series of EP releases Marson has planned, Electric Soul Magic Vol. II features six soulful tracks infused with blues, rock and grunge, each packing a unique punch paired with the songwriter’s soaring vocals. With this announcement, Marson released this statement:
“Electric Soul Magic Vol. II is the second installment in a series of ongoing EPs that focus on the music I’ve been making for the past year. I have a pretty large collection of recordings that ranges from balls-to-the-wall rock and roll, such as “Float With It” or “My Love Is A Cannibal,” to very soft acoustic folk songs, which will be coming out in later volumes. Volume II is a collection of harder edged songs that go together more in terms of things I’ve been doing recently and am extremely excited about, rather than any sort of common thematic thread – other than the usual motifs about love and light within existential darkness. You know, the usual bar conversations. ” – Joe Marson
