About The Soulution:

Bruce Cooper - Drums: Bruce's style is unique & hard hitting; He is technically brilliant, versatile, and has great groove & feel.

Gary Johnston - Keys: Again, extremely versatile & technically brilliant; the ‘color’ Gary brings to the Soulution has taken the band to another level!!

Ian Taylor - Bass: Back in the saddle for a little over a year now, Ian has evolved from playing classic rock & blues to laying down some serious soul & funk.
