Jason Mandell is a singer and songwriter in Atwater Village in Los Angeles, California. After releasing several albums with his band The Coals , he is out on his own. “Soul of America,” his first single, is “a lament for our nation’s woes and a prayer for its healing”. The song begins as a lyrical folk ballad in the tradition of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger or early Bob Dylan, but swells into a rousing anthem, with mariachi horns and a gospel choir – a musical reflection of the diversity that defines the American experience.
