Playing tracks by
Tower Of Power, Jack Mack & The Heart Attack, Soulful Torino Orchestra, Lady Daisey, The Poets Of Rhythm and more.
I've sorted through my collection looking for tunes with "soul" in the title and featuring artists playing a similar sound to what I shared with you in my last cloudcast: Lace ‘Em Up Tight.
Most of these are young, contemporary artists who have soaked up the Soul, R&B, and Funk of yesteryear and running with it. And like the Blues and Jazz that are better appreciated and supported overseas, many of these bands have re-invigorated classic American musical genres but they're not from around here.
Lady Daisey was born in Brooklyn and raised in Florida but lives and tours in Europe now. The Poets Of Rhythm were a troop of German James Browns back in the 90's. Deep Street Soul hails from Melbourne, Australia.
Out of the UK you'll hear Nick Pride & The Pimptones and Hannah Williams with her band, The Affirmations. Cais Sodre Funk Connection is a 9-piece funk and soul band out of Lisbon, Portugal. And the mix closes with a Parisian who goes by the name of Ben L'Oncle Soul.
