THE SOUL MOVERS NEW 'BONA FIDE' ALBUM OUT NOW!
Plans are afoot in camp Soul Mover to move not only folks souls but their BODIES too... Stay tuned for the first track off their third album for ABC Music set to drop in July, 2020. It's gonna spin you right round!
"Earning their stripes as one of Australia’s hardest working bands, The Soul Movers have taken their special blend of Soul to the USA and back again to create their new album, BONA FIDE - out now through ABC Music/ UMA.
Fronted by Lizzie Mack and her brother in Soul, Murray Cook, The Soul Movers include in their number, bassman Andy Newman (The Visitors) Marko Simec on keys (Waiting For Guinness) drummer Lozz Benson (That Redhead).
Never content to spend a night indoors, The Soul Movers headed stateside to play shows from LA to NY as they cut BONA FIDE in a series of iconic studios that occupy hallowed musical ground including Fame, Muscle Shoals Jimmy Nutt's The Nutthouse Studio in Alabama, and in Memphis, Royal and Sun Studios. At the latter, “X” marks the spot where Elvis sang, and that’s where Lizzie stood and delivered as the band lay down some of the finest grooves you’re likely to hear in 2019." Sean Sennett
With Bona Fide, The Soul Movers offer an album that features many hit-making musicians including music legends from Alabama, the "Swampers". David Hood joins in on bass, Spooner Oldham on keys and Milton Sledge on drums with key tracks being decorated by guitarist Kelvin Holly, Little Richard's collaborator of 20 years.
Having recorded across many iconic studios including Sun and Royal in Memphis, as well as Fame and Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, 'Bona Fide' places The Soul Movers' music in the highly skilled hands of the originators of these exciting soul-pop, blues, and 'old school' R&B genres.
In terms of live performance, Glenn A. Baker captures The Soul Movers' festival set perfectly:
"The Soul Movers have become even more road-hardened since returning from their US adventures. The evidence was on display today at the Newtown Festival, where they delivered a cracking 40-minute set that blew everyone away. In fact, the mosh pit became so animated that it was almost lethal!
Murray Cook and Lizzie Mack have forged an alliance so powerful, so fearsomely funky, that The Soul Movers have become one of the most exciting live bands in the land..."
