Muscle Souls has a series of little photos/videos on Instagram about the music that influences us or that we just plain love! Sometimes they're very famous artists, sometimes they're a little more obscure or somewhat forgotten. Either way they're always artists worth revisiting or checking out for the first time.

Another Single Release! 

Hello Friends!

On Sunday, December 2 we released the second of our series of new singles, "I Don't Know What Makes Me".  More of a rocker than the soul grooving style of "Is My Love Killing You?" the new single has an infectious guitar riff to anchor the song throughout.  John takes the vocal lead on this song which touches on the remorse of bad behaviour with the assurance that love is still strong.  This is our second exclusive release to Alan May's Glory Boy Mod Radio Show broadcast from 6Towns Radio UK!  You can tune in any Sunday at 6pm UK roast beef time or 1pm for our local Toronto area hangover brunch time!  If you want to catch up and hear what Alan had to say about us and hear the song in context of some Mod faves...you can listen to the Glory Boy podcast by clicking the highlighted text!  It was a great show!

"I Don't Know What Makes Me" is now ready for a set your own price download here on our site!   iTunes download will be available soon so please watch this space for announcements!

KTF!

More Music Coming! 

Hello Friends!

Here's the latest...from Muscle Souls

In October 2018 we released, "Is My Love Killing You?" the first of a series of new singles!  The song debuted on The Glory Boy Mod Radio Show in the UK which has a dedicated following of listeners into Mod, Mod Revival, Soul, Northern Soul and all manner of music inspired by those glorious sounds!  If you missed the show you can still catch up by listening to the podcast version.  Our friends Penny Lane and Wayne Lundqvist Ford also played us on their shows Punks in Parkas out of Canada and the Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More out of Sweden.  Their podcasts are also archived so, click on their names if you want to dig a little deeper into the scene!  Some shows out of the US have featured us as well including the Music Authority and The Basement Tapes.

The song is still available from this site here where you can set your own price but is also now available on iTunes.  There's even an audio version on YouTube which will hold a place until we have time to make a video!  Spotify listeners can check out our new playlist called, "Soul for the Road" featuring the new single alongside some of the great tunes we love!

Meanwhile we're getting ready to release the next single, "I Don't Know What Makes Me".  We'll be announcing a date for this little rocker soon!  Just scroll down to see the artwork!

Stay well,

Muscle Souls recording update... 

In case this is your first visit to our site, I’ll bring you up to speed… 

It was nearly impossible to schedule Muscle Souls gigs this past year as I was constantly on tour with The Beatlemanics (where I play the role of John Lennon).  But all was not lost as Nicole and I found time to write new songs and review existing material in order to plan the next recording.  The new record will have 11 original songs and is a tribute to the “wall of sound” pop of the 60s and Philly Soul sound of the early 70s…you get where we’re coming from?  That music was lush, soulful and infectiously sweet!   

You may know that Nicole loves singing close harmonies but at our live shows people are always delighted when we feature Nicole on lead vocals.  I’m excited to tell you that Nicole will be moving into the spotlight on this album not only contributing as a songwriter, but also singing lead on two of what are sure to be standout tracks!  

This is an ambitious project and we’re still planning how to get the music to the stage for the most impact.  Future shows will include intimate acoustic shows as we’ve always done, but we will be bringing the band back to the stage as well as we grow. 

Stay tuned to the latest Muscle Souls by filling out the contact form on this site and we’ll send you a free music download!   

We can’t wait to share the new music with you but meanwhile, you can check out our gallery or follow us on Instagram where we've already posted photos and video clips to whet your appetite.
