Ben l’Oncle Soul

soul // french // motown Ben l'Oncle Soul

The sounds of Ben l’Oncle Soul are spreading through Europe, with a major hit this summer in the form of an uptempo soul cover of “Seven Nation Army”.┬áSigned to Motown, Ben has all elements covered. Some say his style is not original enough, but when the styles are blended and performed this well, and the songs are this catchy, who really cares. This is good music. Period.┬áSo if you like soul & funk and appreciate a singer that knows how to manipulate his sound to range from John Legend to Jamie Lidell and back to all the soul greats from the ol’ days, this should be on blast.

French retro soul with a modern edge.

    Oh yah btw.

    Dear Motown,
    We tried really hard to get in contact with you so we could share this awesome stuff with your blessing. But we couldn’t.
    Plz don’t file a takedown notice; that would be rather uncouth.

    I’m waiting for a US release. MP3 download or non-import would be great. I’ve been listening to these 2 songs on high rotation for a while now.
