LISTEN UP: New Artist Bousal Debuts Music of My Soul

The promising new artist Bousal debuts his first album today, Music of My Soul, showcasing his penchant for “lyrical expressionism” through an eclectic array of tracks that he describes as influences of vintage reggae, blues, and “DJ chatting.

Bousal prides himself on his songwriting skills and says “I just want to be known as a man who has strong lyrics” and even confesses his mother once told him, ‘you don’t know how to sing but you know how to express yourself.’

A self-trained singer, Bousal began performing while attending high school in Brooklyn, playing small clubs and parties in the neighborhood. His favorite artists are as varied as his musical styles as he lists reggae artist Buju Banton, Blues men B.B. King and Buddy Guy, and even Frank Sinatra among his top five -perhaps a sign that this artist  won’t allow himself to be pigeon-holed into one genre.

Independently produced by Etop “Segaffi” Akpabio, Music is a nice departure from the usual over-produced music from mainstream labels and their stylized artists and delivers that edgy unfettered realness that only an indie album from an artist-on-the-rise can offer.

Music of My Soul is available at and on iTunes.

  1. Music of My Soul is an album with different styles; there’s a song for everyone’s tastes. My favorite is the folksy Heard About You. I also like Juenesse Moir although I don’t understand French, now I want to learn. Lying Can Deceive, Up the Hills and Wrong Love are also very nice catchy tunes. I recommend the album and am looking forward to volume 2.

  2. Refreshing and revitalizing…. Love the various details and beats… Something for everyone, evokes a certain nostalgia while redefining the fusion – bravo waiting for the next album 🙂

  5. I listened to the LP all the way through. It is a grand experience of modern spoken word and reggae with a great concept twist. Etop did it well with Bousal’s vocal compositions. I only wish there was a 50’s rock ballad on the LP.
