Armed with inspirational lyrics and a fresh new sound, NEWWORLDSON are rescuing soul music from being a mere genre or label and returning the art form to its sacred roots. Singer Joel Parisien says "there's a lack of community in people's lives today. If you trace back the roots of 'roots' music, of 'soul' music, of 'folk' music, it's about folks; it's social music.
