Taylor MacCall – Black Powder Soul

Release date: Friday, September 24th 2021
Label: Thirty Tigers

Emerging singer, songwriter and musician Taylor McCall will release his anticipated full-length debut album, Black Powder Soul, September 24 via Thirty Tigers. Ahead of the release, the song “Highway Will” is debuting today.

Produced by Sean McConnell (Michael Franti, Wade Bowen), Black Powder Soul is the product of a winding musical journey for McCall that began at age seven when he received his first guitar. In the years since, the South Carolina native and avid outdoorsman and fisherman has formed his own sense of unique musicianship—incorporating self-taught styles that fit each song rather than following conventional techniques. With Black Power Soul’s fourteen tracks, including a special prologue featuring the voice his late grandfather, McCall explores the balance of good and evil, destruction and healing and the importance of having faith in the darkest of times.

Reflecting on the album, McCall shares, “This, to me, felt like what I’d been dreaming about for years…Black Powder Soul is the circle of life: you’re dropped off here, by the old ship of Zion, and everything in between is life itself, from good to bad. The things that clutter up the pure soul are all in here. We all have a black powder soul that can explode, but there is redemption in all of us too.”

McCall has built a strong grassroots fanbase since discovering his voice in his late teens. His songs “The Hounds” and “Quartermaster” have each received over 500,000 streams across platforms since they were released last year and his recent OurVinyl Session has already garnered over 95,500 streams on Spotify and 17,000 views on YouTube. Additionally, early champions include MeatEater’s Steven Rinella, who recently featured McCall as a guest on Ep. 242 of his acclaimed podcast (listen here).

In celebration of the new music, McCall will perform a series of select shows this summer including stops at Decatur, GA’s Eddie’s Attic, Charlotte, NC’s The Evening Muse, Nashville, TN’s Panfest at 3rd & Lindsley, Greenville, SC’s Radio Room and Newport, KY’s Southgate House Revival.
