Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his rich, intensely soulful vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.

Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal in 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning five-piece band includes some of the area’s most revered and accomplished musicians. Joining Hoyer (keyboards/vocals) is Benjamin Kushner (guitar), Blake DeForest (trumpet), Mike Keeling (bass), and Larell Ware (drums). Inspired by the sounds of Stax, Motown, Muscle Shoals, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal – to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles.

On January 26th, 2018, Hoyer released “The End of the Night”, a 3-song EP and solo side project with veteran Nashville songwriters Jay Knowles (Harry Connick Jr, Blake Shelton), and Jon Coleman (Trace Adkins). In the spring, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal are set to record their fourth full length record at Make Believe Studios in Omaha, NE, with Grammy-nominated engineer, Rick Carson. The album will be released in Europe in August of 2018, followed by a 7-week European tour before its US release.

In 2017, Josh was featured as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, and the band completed their first European tour; a 27-city stint capped with a live album release from their show in Brussels, Belgium.The hard working band completed several national tours from 2015-2017, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states each year, including opening for George Clinton, Charles Bradley, Booker T Jones, and Muscle Shoals Revue. Their year-round touring schedule took them from coast to coast, including several major summer music festivals.

In 2016, the magic of their live show caught the attention of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), who joined with the band to record their third full-length album. Running From Love, was recorded at Nashville’s historic Sound Emporium, and once again features Hoyer’s trademark vocals and the band’s signature groove. The album was released on April 8, 2016, on Silver Street Records, and is available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.

“If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer. The Lincoln, Nebraska, soul shouter, and his band of merry soulsters, Soul Colossal, deliver a sound so big, so funky, so wring-the-sweat-out-of-you energetic that it reaches through the speakers and shakes you until you start moving to its groove.” – No Depression

LowDown Brass Band (LDB) deftly synthesizes the gritty sounds of Chicago with the high energy second-line street beat of the Crescent City. LDB brandishes a powerful brass frontline of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, with a funky backline of drums and sousaphone. Combining the poetic ferocity of Billa Camp with stellar vocal harmonies, adventurous improvisation, movement, and grooves, LDB creates an infectious and diverse sound that has something for every listener.

Fresh off their appearance at The 2017 Chicago Jazz Festival, LowDown maintains a constant performing and touring schedule throughout North America. In 2015, LDB released an ambitious project titled “LowDown Sounds” that included a critically acclaimed cameo by Roy Ayers on the track “Everybody Loves The Sunshine.” LowDown Brass is now set to begin the next chapter with the release of their 5th self-produced full length studio album “LowDown Breaks.” This new offering steps deeper into refining their unique sound, combining the hip hop sound with multiple world music and jazz styles.

“LowDown Breaks” sounds as if it could be comprised of samples – as if every instrument came off an old soul record – the drum “break” from a JB’s record, or a horn blast ripped from an Al Green cut – and that was the idea from the beginning. But there are no samples on this record except in the transitions: DJ Alo (The Dread/Chicago) and Laelo (Sousa/Producer) sampled the LDB horns and drums, cut up them up, replaced, remixed, and create”LowDown Breaks.” This concept is a nod to the breaks used by the original DJs and producers from the Golden Age of Hip Hop and gives the album a sound akin to “The Apache” or “Funky Drummer” while always sounding new and fresh.

“Lowdown Breaks” includes several marquee collaborations with stellar artists including: Chicago rapper Ang13 on “Cold Shoulder,” Fada Dougou on “Don’t Wait! Right Now!,” DJ ALO and The Dread on “Ghost Town” and “Can I Kick It”, as well as a remix for the video for “Can I Kick It” by Nick The Graduate (Illuminati Congo/Chicago). The album was tracked in Chicago at The Drake by Anthony Gravino (Davy Knowles/Marquis Hill) and mixed by legendary hip hop engineers/ producers Alex Gross and Dan Zorn at Studio 11. As track #1 iterates – LowDown breaks tradition, breaks expectations, and makes a break for your ears.

Soul music will never go out of style. Born in the musical bastion of Charleston, SC, Gaslight Street’s regional presence has grown behind their relentless tours throughout the Southeast and beyond. These three men – compiled from among the best all-around musicians Charleston has to offer – know how to blend swagger with humility and sweat with soul. Fresh on the heels of their fourth studio album, “Two Years Gone”, the band is back in the studio again and set to give their fifth effort by the end of 2017. Featuring the unmistakably soulful lyrics and vocal duo of Campbell Brown and Whitt Algar, the band strongly stakes it’s place as worthy inheritors of the Southern soul tradition.

“Gaslight Street have crafted a signature sound that is equal parts honey and moonshine, with soul-infused swagger.”

It’s a boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. It’s the clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. It’s grit. It’s the sounds of the South. It’s Cranford Hollow, a blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalachian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll.

The Hilton Head Island quintet, comprised of vocalist and guitarist John Cranford, bass man Phillip Sirmans, drummer Randy Rockalotta, fiddler and vocalist Eric Reid and newest member guitarist Yannie Renencke, have won over thousands of loyal fans with what they call Lowcountry Stomp, a sound that is at once eclectic but uniquely their own. Elements of Blues, Old-Time Country, and Southern Psychedelic Rock come together with ancient mountain melodies in an energetic, engaging musical root bag sprinkled with some Sea Island hoodoo. Since 2011 Cranford Hollow has been playing upwards of 200 shows a year, steadily expanding from the South Carolina Lowcountry to places far afield including multiple western tours. The band’s most recent Swampfire records release “Color/Sound/Renew/Revive” has the band poised to break nationally in 2017 as they tour to support.

The Aquaducks have been making waves in and around Music City as a high octane funk and soul band with a live energy that is rarely matched. The Ducks’ first two singles “Nightlife” and “Bill’s Toupée” immediately caught the attention of local radio station Lighting 100, and have continued to receive regular air play. Described by Brooklyn, NY blog Pancakes and Whiskey as “Dripping with enough funk to fill several swimming pools,” The Aquaducks have created a new sound with influences ranging from Earth Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder to Lettuce and James Brown.

The Fall of 2016 has seen The Aquaducks’ song “What’s Goodington” featured the movie trailer for “Baked in Brooklyn” as well as the release of their debut full length live album “Live at the Beast.” Fans new and old are now able to experience the high energy show that has critics calling them “probably one of the best duck-themed funk bands of all time.” In the meantime, if The Aquaducks are playing in your town, put on some dancing shoes and go see one of the best live bands that Nashville has to offer.

Hailing from the Bluegrass with a sound as unique and smooth as the regions’ beloved bourbon, C2 & The Brothers Reed’s authenticity shines in their studio debut Weigh Station Tour. After the independent release of their first EP “Hot Mess”, along with an extensive tour schedule (250+ shows in 2014-15) traveling mainly in the southern part of the country, they took to the studio less than a year later to cut their new record Weigh Station Tour. Split into sides, ‘Exit A’ ‘Exit B’, Weigh Station Tour explores gritty rock and roll while referencing 60’s and 70’s era soul music, embracing a style that is nearly lost but deeply needed in the surge of modern sound and technology. The band – singer/bassist Cameron Clark, guitarist Kelly Reed, drummer Kody Reed, and keyboardist James Weishar – hide behind nothing on their records, with a ‘realness’ that has been constantly attributed to their live performance.

Since forming in 2013, C2 & The Brothers Reed have made some notable appearances across the board with acts such as Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland, Moon Taxi, Eddie Money, Warrant, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, 23 String Band and jam bands The Werks and Dopapod. “Weigh Station Tour: Exit A” was released in January 2015 and the followup “Exit B” released summer of 2016.

Gravy has successfully “created their own very original sound with their latest album Get Busy Living – a bit of neo-soul mixed with some indie rock smothered in a whole bunch of New Orleans funk” according to producer of Gravy’s latest album and founding member of Galactic, Robert Mercurio. Inspired by a cultural renaissance and newfound clarity of vision; Gravy preaches the gospel of New Orleans funk while maintaining a creative voice steeped in the time-honored traditions of The Crescent City. Quickly making a name for themselves by paying homage to influences as varied and vast as the city they call home, the four members of Gravy came together as a band of experienced and working musicians hailing from different parts of the country with an unquenchable thirst to make it in the Big Easy.

The ability to express a mastery of style across-the-board is quite possibly the most alluring quality of Gravy. They took their unique blend of influences and artfully crafted an infectious style capable of blending genres and (in a word)”redefining” what is possible for the band, according to co-producer and fellow Galactic member, Ben Ellman.

On the heels of their most formative album to date, Gravy takes the helm on Get Busy Living and navigates within their respective terrain in innovative and exciting ways that make a bold statement about the future of this band. This latest album, now road tested with an added element of spontaneity encouraged by the live setting, has become an artistic achievement that serves as a testament to their hard-work, dedication, and unwavering devotion to their craft. Gravy has elevated their creative vision above the contemporary quagmire and gained a musical perspective that is inspired by ingenuity and fueled by a passionate presentation of their eclectic influences. Excited to pursue a fresh set of tour dates and festival spots, Gravy is on a mission to bring their message to music fans hungry for something that challenges, inspires, and satisfies the soul.
