Showcasing his distinctive knack for blending elements of roots rock, R&B, blues, gospel, folk and psychedelia, Music Is Love features Papa Mali (aka Malcolm Welbourne) on acoustic and electric guitar, slide guitar and lead vocals. The album reflects his deep appreciation and respect for legendary artists Dr. John, The Meters, Lee Dorsey, Fats Domino, Johnny Adams and others. A mix of 12 original songs and carefully curated covers from Al Green to Randy Newman, Music Is Love builds a musical bridge between swampy Southern blues traditions and West Coast psychedelic leanings of youthful influences such as the Grateful Dead, The Doors and CSN.

"If Music Is Love is telling any kind of story, it's that I've been around long enough to have assimilated the wide range of my influences into something that's my own. People know I'm from New Orleans, but I'm also letting them know I grew up in Shreveport and lived in and played in Austin for many years. I'm not trying to be anything but myself and ultimately that's what I want to come across."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
