Goin' Home [edit]
by Whosoever South | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: May 14, 2013
 

While sharing their testimonies is an essential component of the new project and live show, Whosoever South's infectious and inventive blend of what some call "country crunk" is the main catalyst for reeling in the masses. The blend is certainly unconventional, akin to street savvy influences like TobyMac and Lecrae colliding with something that might be found on the T Bone Burnett-produced O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack, complete with banjo, harmonica, guitar, trumpet, bass, piano, dobro and cello.

No genre? No problem! | Posted April 26, 2013
What do country, rap, gospel, and reggae music have in common? Two words: Whosoever South. Straight out of Southern Georgia, singers Rowdy Eunice, Sarah Eunice and Mike Mitchell embody each of these genres throughout their debut album, Goin' Home. Each song establishes a different feel, touches on a different genre, and ultimately contributes in setting this group apart from the rest. 
 
The multi-genre experience starts with the urban country track "Where We From." This opening song gives listeners a little insight as to where the three are from, and exclaims, "The road we on get a little bumpy, but it ain't nothin' cuz we country." Sticking with the same genre, "All The Time" is the next track and uses "This Little Light of Mine" as part of the chorus by singing, "This little light of mine / I'm goin' let it shine / Let it shine / All the time / Let it shine." The song is very upbeat and positive. The banjo and harmonica gives it the urban country feel, and makes it hard not to clap your hands with the chorus.
 
This is where the album takes a slight genre change to the more country-infused rap/hip-hop with the title track, "Goin' Home." The main message of the song is about their excitement to leave this Earth and go to Heaven. 
 
Surprise! It's another genre change. "That's Life" is more of that Southern Gospel feel, and speaks to the struggles we all face through life. This brings us to "Run Tha Race," which talks a lot about their background and hometown.
 
"I Know" is up next, and kind of slows things down a bit. It's got a deeper feel, and with the use of children as part of the chorus and speaking a prayer at the end, it really makes the song more sentimental and intimate. 
 
"Give My Life to You" is yet another deep song where the trio really opens up, shouting to God: "Lord You gave your life for sin / You hung up on that cross to save us all / The third day you rose again / I wanna give my life to You.
 
Reggae is the next genre on the list with "He Loves Me." The message here is simply that: "He Loves Me." This is my favorite song on the album. I love the slight reggae/hip-hop feel, and the chorus is extremely catchy. 
 
"Your Love" is a devotional ballad that praises God for His love. "It's Your love that lifts me high enough to reach harmony / I can't live without You / You are the very best part of me.
 
The closing track, entitled "He's Got It," is a perfect song to end the album. It's more like an anthem that encourages believers to get up and glorify God for all the ways He's blessed each of our lives. 
 
Closing Thoughts: 
Few artists are truly able to pull off multiple genres, especially within one album, but it's something Whosoever South makes look easy. With each song having a different feel, listeners will be sure to be constantly entertained. Their versatility caters to a wide array of people, and as long as they continue to do this, I am sure this won't be the last we see of the group.

Whosoever South - Goin' Home review | Posted June 17, 2013
 Christian music is filled by artists who produce music that could be best described as “same old, same old”.  It’s a distinct pleasure to find artists who wants to break the musical norms and share a vision that is new and fresh.  And so enters Whosoever South with a unique infusion of country and old time gospel blended into their rap/hip-hop sound.


Frontman for Whosoever South, Rowdy Eunice best describes what they sound like:

“It’s like a genre all its own because we don’t fit into any one genre, iIt’s not really been done before, but it’s not all that complicated either. It’s just a combination of good music: country, bluegrass, gospel and rap music all mixed together.”

While their lyrical content can best be described as straight ahead faith and worship, it’s the music that takes what could have been ordinary and brings it to a new level.

The Georgia based Whosoever South was founded in 2008 with the husband and wife team of Rowdy and Sarah Eunice along with Mike Mitchell, have released a few EP’s over those years. Now they are poised to deliver their first full length effort, Goin’ Home come May 14th.

Some of the outstanding tracks from Goin’ Home include:

The popular opening track “Where We From” gives the listener some obvious clues as to the work, values, and musical background of Whosoever South.

“All The Time” finds it’s basis in bluegrass then gently heads into an interesting hip-hop mix.

The stand out track from Goin’ Home is the blues inspired “ That’s Life”.  A wonderful blending of hip-hop and blues as Rowdy vocals take us to the roots of our faith in Christ.

“Give My Life To You” defines many of the potential obstacles Christian’s share their faith to non-believers and their own family, but emphasizes the blessings provided by Christ.

Whosoever South offers up a number of genre blends through Goin’ Home, but the reggae inspired “He Loves Me” still comes as a musical surprise.

Goin’ Home has to be considered one of the outstanding albums released in 2013. Accolades go to Whosoever South for stretching the musical boundaries of Christian music as they take music to a whole new level.

 This album is amazing and I just personally love the fusion of the music it is just different and it will reach out to all ages young old and middle. This will result in unification. The group also encourages unity since it shows that all races no matter what skincolour can still worship the Lord together. Pslam 31.
