What shines through most on Soul isn't LaFarge's style or studiousness, reflected off a scuffed and scratched mirror of the past. Instead, it's the same spirit that animates anyone who plays music to begin with: because it's so much fun you can't stop. And that spirit and sound seems to be translating to audiences across continents, ages and cultural divides.
"I am who I am," LaFarge says of his persona. "What they see is what they get. If people are coming out for that, then that's part of it. You can't take one away from the other. Do you think people went to see Elvis because he could dance like that? The image is a reference point. I've cultivated my music, and I've cultivated a style as well. I love clothes and hats. Some girls think I'm cute. Some guys think I'm goofy. But it is what it is. When you hear the songs, you refer to the human being they came from."
