Sometime there is nothing better than the funky feel of hard warm soul against your eardrums. It's probably what got me into this whole thing, sitting in front of my dad's stereo as his Motown Records spinned into beautiful infinity. It is the rhythm of passion, the ache of heart break and as Otis Redding once sung its sitting across from the person you love the most in this world and sharing a moment as simply profound as drinking coffee and smoking a cigarette.
So this week we solute the sweet music of soul with videos by two modern masters and their amazing groups.
JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound - Everything Will Be Fine
JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound have recently released their first album on the Chicago based Bloodshot label and will be playing our own Doug Fir on the 7th of this month.
Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears - Sugarfoot
Having released their most recent album Scandalous earlier this year, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears are on the road tirelessly touring. Luckily for us her in the North West It means that we can catch him at the awesome Wonder Ballroom on November 16th.
