Jessie Albright and Foster Blues

We have an excellent band featuring female singer/songwriter Jessie Albright. Early in 2015 we spent months auditioning for the best musicians in Atlanta to include in our group that plays mostly originals and some covers influenced by Rock, Blues and Pop. Some of our recent shows have been with Randall Bramblett, Mothers Finest at Johns Creek Amphitheater, and headling at the Wire and Wood Songwriters Festival in Alpharetta. We are all experienced and talented musicians, have all necessary gear and always promote every upcoming performance. We live in the Roswell, Alpharetta, and Johns Creek area and are very much interested in performing at Alive in Roswell. You may be familiar with the Fall Festivus in Dahlonega that we recently performed at for the Triangle Club in November. The band will be headlining at Smiths Olde Bar’s Music Room on Feb 9th in case you can make it. Please check out our website and FB page and give me a call so that we can set up a date to invite our fans for an evening of energetic fun and music! W9 is available.

Soulhound

What is it about Atlanta Georgia’s Soulhound that makes them so special? Maybe it’s because in a sea of interchangeable, cookie cutter bands & music, Soulhound creates music that just doesn’t sound like their contemporaries.

Soulhound has been described as “The Meters meets Hendrix meets Steely Dan”. Clearly Soulhound are inspired disciples of the groove- oriented R&B, Soul & greasy Funk of the late sixties & seventies.

Here is a write up Jennifer Duncan from Smyrna Patch did a while back about the band – we think it does a better job of describing the band than we ever could:

“Try as one might, Soulhound cannot be categorized or pigeonholed into a nutshell description. A deep and wide foundation of soul is at the heart of their sound, which has been described as “the Meters meets Hendrix meets Steely Dan.” Soulhound brews up a potent concoction of genres: R&B, soul, a heavy dose of late 60s and 70s funk, like Parliament and Funkadelic. But just when you think you’ve got them all figured out, Soulhound can unleash a surprising jam-band vibe, akin to Phish, or throw in a few Beatles-inspired tunes. Playing a creative hodgepodge of genres rooted in soul, Soulhound is musical entertainment at its finest. Suffice it to say that if you catch the Soul Train, you’ll have a funky good time watching them perform…”

Soulhound has played to audiences as far south as Florida and as north as Virginia, have made appearances on television including NBC-TV and local Atlanta channel Peachtree TV.

In it’s over 13 year existence, the band has shared stages with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members like The Temptations, The Levon Helm Band & The 4 Tops – as well as national & regionally touring groups like, Icona Pop, The Zac Brown Band, Blues Traveler, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Galactic, Mofro, Soulive, Col. Bruce Hampton, Railroad Earth, & many others.

Finally, the band has received accolades such as:

Selected by The Sunday Paper as one of their “Local Bands We Love”

Nominated Atlanta’s top local band 2006 by the Atlanta Journal Constitution (the winner that year was the Zac Brown Band)

Thank you for your consideration.
