Ric Wilson is among the compelling new wave of artists that Chicago has to offer in 2016. Even prior to the release of his latest project, Ric was garnering enough excitement around the creative circles that a strong fan-driven campaign to have him play a set at North Coast earlier in the month became one of the most important storylines leading up to the festival.
Now, two weeks removed from the release of Soul Bounce, the EP is still in rotation. The seven tracks featured here showcase the artist’s ability to create an uplifting body of work without having to sacrifice substance to exude exuberant vibes.
It’s refreshing to hear Ric face relevant issues head on and still maintain a positive outlook on life. My personal favorite record here is “We Love Us,” a song that speaks on loving yourself and those that deal with similar struggles, and also the centerpiece of a very cohesive project. This particular project can help you get through any type of tough situation, you just have to click play below and enjoy.
