Born Malik Boyd, into a musical family nestled in the outskirts of Philadelphia, Soul would sneak downstairs in the middle of the night to listen to his father’s 12” records. Although knowing this was forbidden by his mother, Soul spent countless nights soaking in the musical styles of Mandrill, WAR, Marvin Gaye, and Issac Hayes. Although these aural lessons did not immediate manifest anything in his life, it would become part of the foundation for his destiny. Soul got his music feet wet, singing on just about every choir his church had.  However, the church was very strict, opting not to use any other instruments than a piano and organ. As the 1st semester of college passed, Soul felt something changing in his life. The choice to listen to this inner voice would drive Soul from college to New York, with very little money and a quest to complete the dream of becoming a singer. Job after job, opportunity and opportunity, label meeting after label meeting, the quest showed signs of promise, but ultimately would lead to disappointment. That luck changed when Soul met Kool (of Kool and the Gang), and after that meeting, Soul walked out with a new manager and a new vision. He began working with Kool and recording in the studio. While this union was short lived, it catapulted Soul into working and recording with some of the music industry’s top producers. Soul also started an open mic venue “Philly Unplugged”, which ran weekly for 7 yrs. That vision gave way to opportunities that allowed unsigned artists to perform on the same stage as artists like Floetry, Jeff Bradshaw,Teddy Riley, while creating a buzz that would allow Soul to perform on various stages across the country. Soul moved to LA went out and built a studio in his home and learned how to produce records & melodies into song. He was the 1st music artist to make a transition to become Pres. of the Philly Young Democrats & lead youth in community service.
