The singer and songwriter of soul music known as Niall MacMahon has released his latest official single, “Sold Out on Love.” The track has been proudly published on the Mosa Records independent music label, which has been home to such artists as the Vandal, Ray Morrison, Germaine Johnson, and South East Side. A blend of blues, rock and soul played way down deep in the groove, “Sold Out on Love” by Niall MacMahon is the latest example of Europe’s part in the continuing blues tradition.
Commenting on his main artistic influences, Niall MacMahon cites legends such as Joe Cocker, James Brown, Van Morrison, and Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers. Considering his mention of Cocker and Rodgers in particular, it may come as no surprise that MacMahon’s own sound should find itself so firmly grounded in that classic, blues and rock sound which has become so rare to find in the modern era.
This sentiment seems close to MacMahon’s heart, as well, when the listener hears the rolling, blues-soaked bars of “Sold Out on Love.” Asked to describe the theme and message of his new single, MacMahon writes succinctly, “Old soul is best!”
