Biography

DeRobert & The Half-Truths are G.E.D. Soul's tried and true house band, recording on a majority of the labels' releases to date. The Half-Truths are comprised of one of the more solid rhythm sections around, an edgy jazzed out horn section, and anchored by our main man DeRobert and his soulful voice.

The band truly possesses a DIY attitude; handling their own recording, mixing, promotions, screen printing and art design in house on their very own independent label, G.E.D. Soul. In 2009 They were featured on Tramp Records "Contemporary Funk" compilation, have been featured several times on KCUT's WeFunk radio in Montreal, and have sold over 1500 7inch records world wide.
