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.
