Soultrain.com presents Music Monday: Colorful Tambourines

Soultrain.com presents today's Music Monday with Austin Brown his newest single “Colorful Tambourines” . The song is a retro ride right down the Soul Train line all the way to the late 70s early 80s. Austin laces the track with his silky falsetto and just a hint of his Uncle Michael’s influence, and infuses an eclectic mix like a kaleidoscope that will have you dancing or wanting to throw on a pair of skates and hit the nearest roller rink. The song is multi-faceted like a prism; no matter what angle you hold it, you’ll see–or, in this case, hear–something different every time you push play.
