Entries in soul (37)
Based in Washington, DC, the Dee Stone Band is funked-up progressive rock and soul swagger spiced with a dash of jazz. Chunky grooves, searing guitar solos, and amazing vocals birth a satisfying, groovalicious stew that will have you jumping out of your seat. Don’t fight the feeling. It’s good for your soul!
Ellen Once Again is a singer/songwriter and musician from Texas. Her blend of soul, folk and pop vocals blend effortlessly to make a sound that is vintage without sounding dated.
Known for her soulful heartfelt singing, positive lyrics, beautiful personality and infectious smile Ellen is inspired by Ingrid Michaelson, Lauryn Hill, Sara Bareilles, Adele, Corinne Bailey Rae & Stevie Wonder but maintains her own “quirky” musical identity.
Erin Sidney (aka Syd), Patrick Thomas and Lisa Piccirillo are each experienced touring and recording artists with self-released albums and a thick portfolio of singer/songwriter accolades. In the Fall of 2010 they came together in a lakeside cabin to form Hotels & Highways and record what would become “Lost River”, a folk-tinged meditation on the deeper meaning of living and a love letter to the spirit of collaboration.
Brian Eno once said “It’s not the destination that matters. It’s the change of scene.” Toronto transplants The Movement Fam never had to hear the message; they live it every day. The Melbourne natives sold practically everything they owned last year and moved themselves to Toronto in search of the dream of sharing their “Soul Hop” music with the world.

The Driftwood Sailors are a “Swag Rock” band that play what can best be described as music with an old soul and new groove. End of Another Day mixes elements of folk and pop rock with a laid back approach. Check out www.thedriftwoodsailors.com for more info and a free demo. Enjoy!
Having crafted 4 albums over the past decade in her pop/funk/soul hybrid style with a string of top-shelf producers, singer/songwriter, Holly Long communicates her passion and worldview with an evocative sound in league with Annie Lenox, Sarah McLachlan, and Carly Simon. It’s not just about the music, though. Much like for her chanteuse heroines, music is about connection and community. It’s where she finds herself, and how she makes her contribution to the world.
With an intelligent, evocative pop/rock style and truly monster hooks in the vein of Thom Yorke, Jack Johnson, and Coldplay, Ott is a perfect fit for today’s creative and human landscape. Fueled by his genuine love of people and the desire to serve and help them, Ott is certainly more than great musical talent.
Diggs’ straight forward, crystal clear delivery is a throwback to when hip-hop was more authentic but is still relevant to today’s landscape. When you listen to a Traum Diggs song you get humor, pain, social commentary and real raw lyricism all wrapped up in one package. “I’m an autobiographical emcee,” says Diggs. “My raps are my life.”
There is something refreshingly honest about emcee’s that choose to forego stage monikers and use their given names instead. Artists like Tupac, Andre (3000), Kanye West and Nas(ir) Jones have all bared their soles through music and that is exactly what 26-year-old emcee Michael Trudell Miller aims to do with his craft.
In a world fraught with cynicism and decay, Danni Rosner shines like the sun. The loquacious twenty-six year old chanteuse is one of a new breed of pop singer/songwriters responding to an uncertain world by looking inward. A perfectionist, Rosner exacts every ounce of truth and emotion from her life; mining the soil of her heart for anything of value and illuminating those gems into song.
Janell McCracken p/k/a Lola Bleu is a truly unique talent. The beautiful 22-years-old songstress has been singing all of her life and it shows on her debut album Love Will Find A Way.
Released in early August on HSP Music, the album is the story of Bleu getting out of a relationship, dealing with the breakup and finally finding the person she wants to be with. Produced primarily by David Sanders II, Love covers various genres from soul to hip-hop to mid-tempo grooves with the one constant being Bleu’s smooth soulful voice.
Tin Pan connotes a world from the past – the most dominant and enlightened strains of American music of the early part of the 20th century – jazz, blues and American popular song. But it would be a mistake to say that Tin Pan is fixed in that past. Rather, it is music created to be enjoyed profoundly and joyously in the present. The band has created a rabid following by playing music that resonates powerfully because its intention is pure – to make people dance, smile and conjure with the spirit of music itself. On their new album, Hound’s Tooth, the band has perfected their sonic vision – effortless, wondrous and festive, feeling much like, as the band describes themselves, Ray Charles and Tom Waits at a Bourbon Street Parade.

Shaun Degraff is in the midst of a personal journey, exploring uncharted territory, with unremitting influences of positive and negative energy, away from his comfort zone and approaching that sweet spot between good and evil. That’s where he survives. It’s the tight rope he walks every day, and the title of his new album “Grey Area”.
