RUBY VELLE & THE SOULPHONICS
Deep, raw funk. Stax-style Southern soul.
Uplifting Motown-channeling anthems. Atlanta’s Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics are the heirs to the thrones of the old-school masters. But they’re much more than just a group of revivalists trying to create a period piece. Powerhouse singer Velle and her band will settle for nothing less than bringing these classic sounds glimmering into the now with a fresh new modern sheen.
"Listening to Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics is both entertaining and compelling — because they’ve gone after the root of the thing, in their own way, while living in a place that’s got a built-in connection to soul." -THE BITTER SOUTHERNER
“My Dear” has the groove, the charm and the lyrics powerful enough to make you stand up and take notice. Lee Fields himself even wrote that it was “awesome” on their Facebook page and who am I to disagree?" -OKAYPLAYER
"Honestly, the Soulphonics have brought me to tears as well. Sometimes I’ll be watching them play a show, and I’ll be getting into it, you know, letting the music take the lead, and soon enough the crowd dissolves to the background as I’m absorbed deeper and deeper by this stirring, robust, interweaving vibe they’re pouring out there, and I just get a little overwhelmed. I’ve been transported somewhere else, somewhere that makes me smile and cry and feel utterly amazing." -STOMP AND STAMMER

THE MAIN SQUEEZE
Soul and hip-hop, funk with rock.
The Main Squeeze, with deep musical roots sprouted in the Midwest, have scored their lives at each twist and curve. While starting out as a party band at Indiana University, their forthcoming April 28th release “Without a Sound” illustrates their increasing musical maturity and creativity inspired by their new home in Los Angeles.
If maturity comes with experience, “Without a Sound” reflects this. The Main Squeeze has spent several years building their foundation since being championed by producer Randy Jackson: they have played Red Rocks; shared the stage with The Roots, Aloe Blacc, Janes Addiction, Umphrey’s McGee, and Trombone Shorty; and performed at music festivals like Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.
The Main Squeeze is a blend of soul and hip-hop, funk with rock. They know their sound is “soulful, powerful, and unique” (Newman). Rolling Stone agrees in their recent critique of a live show: “Lead singer Corey Frye’s powerfully soulful vocals forms the foundation of an energetic set.”
