Over the last year, Curtis Harding has reshaped perceptions of what soul music means in the 21st century, along with contemporaries such as Leon Bridges and Gary Clark Jr. Recently, Harding and his band took time out of a European tour to play a handful of songs from Harding’s Soul Power LP (Burger Records). The album serves as an introduction to Harding’s raucous vocal palette and his knack for jamming out eclectic guitar chords.

The session was recorded for Huw Stephens at Maida Vale Studios, a space that’s regarded monumentally due to the list of artists who have played their over the last few decades including the Smashing Pumpkins, Sigur Rós, James Blake, and the Clash. Stephens and Harding also go back and fourth between songs to talk about some of the influences on Harding’s material, and the melting pot that is Atlanta’ music scene, giving nods to the Black Lips, Coathangers, and Mastodon.
