Big Daddy Wilson: Deep In My Soul Review

While visiting clubs in Germany, Big Daddy Wilson was touched by the power of live blues music. Inspired, Wilson produced his newest album: Deep In My Soul. Accompanied by Laura Chavez on guitar and Dave Smith on bass, Wilson’s voice full of feeling gives listeners a taste of the many flavors of the South.

Deep In My Soul exemplifies the beauty of instruments working together in harmony, working together to create a complex arrangement. “Mississippi Me” perfectly blends a wistful piano with Wilson’s voice and adds gentle drums that build up with bright guitar strums for a moving final chorus. Though only for brief moments, each instrument has a moment of spotlight. The title track, “Deep In My Soul” shows just how much a song can build. Despite being on the longer side, the song stays interesting with varying guitar sounds and charming brass under an impassioned voice. The song is constantly changing shape. And the same can be said about the whole album. From the light sound of “Tripping On You” to the dark and warm tones of “I’m Walking” to the fresh country, acoustic tune of “Couldn’t Keep It To Myself” that ends the album, Deep In My Soul covers many emotions with ever-changing melodies and rhythms. 

Fickle indeed, Deep In My Soul brings new discoveries with every listen. And if you just want to feel the music, there’s really a song for every mood on this album.  A truly all-around musician, Big Daddy Wilson will continue to impress with his next release.
