Shawn Mullins (from the album Soul’s Core Revival available on Soul Carnival Records)
The goal for younger musicians is to break through with their music. The intention is strong until it happens and the great what-now makes its presence felt. Shawn Mullins broke through into the mainstream twenty years ago with the hit tune “Lullaby”, the track a part of his debut album, Soul’s Core. The Atlanta, Georgia-based songwriter was surprised, recalling that he ‘had no idea anything like that would ever happen with that song. Back then I just wrote whatever I felt and I must’ve got lucky once’. The 1998 hit gave Shawn Mullins a career, and he revisits his debut album with his recent release,Soul’s Core Revival.
The double disc offers two versions of the original album cuts, Shawn Mullins providing both an electric band and acoustic take on the tunes. Disc one presents the tracks of Soul’s Core Revivalwith Shawn’s touring band, Soul Carnival. The acoustic side includes the bonus of a backstory as Shawn Mullins provides the setting with a spoken introduction to the tunes, Soul’s Core Revivalgiving the musician a chance to offer the songs with new backgrounds and the ability of the singer to wear the tracks as new skin twenty years on.
