Biography

P-Theory are currently recording their forthcoming gospel funk album "Chocolate Sock" in a 1000 year old church in rural England with Kevin Goins. They will be touring Europe and The States this Summer to promote its release. True to their core beliefs, all the instruments are being played live, in the same room, at the same time just as they did with their first album "From the Hood to the Wood".

"We are a live band. That is what we do, that is how the album is being recorded, so absolutely we will take it to the stage!”

Just how true these guys are to the soul of the original ‘PFunk movement’ can be gathered by reference to their now front man Kevin Goins, a genuine legend in the genre who ventured from his New Jersey home last year to hear them out and is now working on their second album together.

Goins was the legendary band leader of ‘Quazar’ and ‘General Kane’ who along with his late Brother Glenn (who used to call in the Mothership during PFunk’s heyday) has created many funk landmarks during his career and has one of the most highly respected soul voices ever. The bond and mutual respect was instantaneous and lead to the successful creation of their first album together within just a 2 week period which went on to sell over 4,000 copies in the first 6 months of its release form their website alone.

Like Kevin said "I thought I was coming over to some weak shit but y'all put The Funk on a joker... changed my mind, yeah white boys can jump!"

So proud of their work was Kevin he took the band home to Plainfield New Jersey (the home of PFunk) to meet the family, gig, and record gospel for his church on his home turf. Subsequent dates in Brooklyn and Manhattan and rave reviews helped to place the band firmly in the hearts of the originators of funk, soul and Gospel music.

Upon their return to the UK P-Theory played 6 sell out consecutive shows in June 2006 in mid size venues (2-400 capacity venues) across the UK. In September they went on to gig and record with the legendary Doug Wimbish and Skip Macdonald during the Liverpool Arts Festival.

Ultimate respect for both the band and their debut album 'From the hood to the wood’ came from the acclaimed US radio show 'Joe Kelly in the Upper Room' when he featured them in June last year, conducting both a cross channel live Interview with band leader Alex Cambell and playing several tracks from the album he referred to as "An Outstanding Record".

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer 'Prince' is one of many to have featured on the 'Upper Room with Joe Kelley and Gi Dussault’ He paid his respect to the show by making it the first to feature on his official website 'NPG Music Club'.
