Of Seed and Soil has a vision of changing the world, a vision of music with a purpose. Singer/songwriter Jace Johnson started the project in early 2010. What started as an early closet recording project turned into a much bigger idea. He began to research non-profit organizations with the hopes of starting his own. Deciding that starting something that big, along with continuing to write and distribute his music, was too big of an undertaking. He turned to the World Food Program USA. All profits from his second album, Warm Winter, would be donated to the program to help feed hungry people around the world. In the first two months since its release, Warm Winter has helped to feed well over 2,000 people. With the hopes of it picking up momentum, Of Seed and Soil has set its first goal of raising $10,000 with the project.
Jace Johnson began using the name Of Seed and Soil because of the earthy feel his music had. On the album he plays a wide range of instruments including, guitar, banjo, bass, piano, percussion, and vocals. It is obvious that he poured himself into every song on the album. With a very mellow folk sound, and passionate lyrics, he explores the meanings of life, love, family, and God or lack thereof. With each track, you begin to understand that he seeks neither fame nor fortune with this project. Only to save himself with the music he loves, and to help others along the way. If you are looking for something to rock out to, Of Seed and Soil is not for you. If you are looking for a smooth, beautiful journey of the mind then check out Of Seed and Soil’s newest album, Warm Winter.
