The Soul Movers debut at Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival 2020!
The Soul Movers have returned from playing shows from LA to NYC and at the same time recording a sizzling new album – BONA FIDE! – at many of the legendary studios of the South: Sun & Royal Studios in Memphis and Fame and Muscle Shoals Studios in Alamaba. With their epic pilgrimage now recorded – visually and sonically – The Soul Movers bring home a killer album with its associated collection of road-food stories, hotel hi-jinks and a road case of new material which they shared in a national tour.
The Soul Movers have delved deep into their musical DNA to create an album that spans not only the spectrum of their musical influences but attempts to do justice to their deep passion for soul, the many that came before them, and how those voices and sounds have influenced them in such personal and lasting ways. The US live shows and recording trip really was a musical identity search and pilgrimage of epic proportions!
The Soul Movers now play with a confirmed and renewed energy across a musical spectrum. Their special mix of soul and pop, blues and rock – now includes the influences of the collaborations they so enjoyed; the band developed their talents and abilities while making their wildest music-making dreams come true.
Originally formed by Lizzie Mack and Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman) in 2008, ARIA Hall of Famer and legendary guitarist Murray Cook (the guitarist in The Wiggles in the red skivvy) joined Lizzie at the helm in 2015. The group has evolved over the years, with the current line-up now including original bass player Andy Newman with dynamic drummer Lozz Benson (The Outlaws) alongside magical keys-man Marko Simec.
Fans reach out for The Soul Movers’ music with both arms; finding music that resonates deep in their hearts with powerful messages that make life, and all its experiences, powerfully real, utterly communal and something we all grow and learn from. Apart from that, The Soul Movers musical recipe is equal parts pure fun and wild musical excitement making, of course, the kind of music everyone wants to get up and groove to.
Stuart Coupe (Author, journalist, music commentator, independent artist publicist and radio broadcaster) says – “The Soul Movers are the real deal, my friends. They love soul music – and they also understand and feel it. The very essence of soul music beats inside the members of The Soul Movers and as such, they play the music with feeling, passion and a big, pulsating heart. In every way, they celebrate its history and look forward to its ever-evolving future – a future that they themselves are part of.”
