Biography

Looking to shake things up in a traditional church service, The Soultones came together for a "one time" gig but stayed together to nurture what proved to be an entirely new gospel sound. Bringing influences from traditional blues, r&b, and a dash of urban sounds, the music of The Soultones hits many genres. Audiences of all ages and musical influences can enjoy their soul-stirring lyrics, tight harmonies, and hand clapping beats. With a mixture of original songs and new arrangements of contemporary and traditional gospel, The Soultones are able to cross boundaries of race, age, churched and un-churched audiences with their message of celebration that will have you reaching for the nearest tambourine.

Having grown up listening to a lot of rock/funk/jazz and blues, each member pours a little of their style into this R&B soul machine. Like their single "This Train," the set hooks you from the first song, and has you grooving like a runaway locomotive by the end.

The Soultones have just signed with Alexis Records and are setting up to tour to promote their new release...."6 Song CD."
