LP - Look Both Ways (ESU Records)



Formed from the talents of five Chicago musicians, The Right Reasons blend soul and rock to create a sound that echoes the past while still remaining wholly modern. The band features frontman T.C. Raven on lead vocals who always gets the crowd engaged through his actions on stage. Not very typical for a soul band are the classic rock influences of the other members which keep a steady and addictive musical undercurrent that has pleased many fans at The Right Reasons' live shows. Playing almost entirely original material, The Right Reasons like to mix it up and often play variations on their repertoire to keep fans guessing. 

The band got their start at local Chicago label ESU Records and includes members from many different reaches of the Chicago music scene. Always putting on an exciting show, the band can at one moment be in the midst of a soulful ballad reminiscent of Sam Cooke, and the next explode into an all-out rock fury on songs such as "Bad Loving Woman" and "Mother's Love". The band often plays with keys, backing singers and a horn section to further the intensity of their performances. 

The Right Reasons have recently released their debut album Look Both Ways and are working on their next album to be released at the end of the summer.
