It’s not every day that a band gets to live their childhood dreams of co-release some type of musical project together but The London Souls’ drummer Chris St. Hilaire and Con Brio bassist Jonathan Kirchner, made that dream come true. The Split 7-inch is a mix between the two bands styles that leads with Con Brio’s song “All Over Me” and ends with The London Souls “Certain Appeal”. Billboard exclaims that the Split 7-inch is “very up-front and passionate.”
The London Souls, — comprised of New York duo Tash Neal on guitar and Chris St. Hilaire on drums, both on vocals — called “the rawest specimen of blues-rock since the Black Keys” (World Cafe), will co-headline a string of shows in August with Con Brio, who PopMatters called “the best new live band in America”. The San Francisco soul-funk seven-piece whose fiery live delivery has been compared to the likes of D’Angelo and James Brown, who are known to work a crowd off their chairs and onto their feet.
Con Brio’s charismatic singer Ziek McCarter (whom KQED says “channels the pained emotion of Otis Redding, the suave edge of Sam Cooke and the solid dance moves, splits and all, of James Brown”), San Francisco’s Con Brio released their debut LP Paradise in summer 2016. They’ve spent the following months making devotees of audiences at home and abroad, including tours with The Revivalists and Galactic as well as sets at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, Japan’s Fuji Rock, the Montreal Jazz Fest, and Austin City Limits. Drawing on blistering electric guitar, old-school horns and a deep in-the-pocket rhythm section, the seven-piece builds on Bay Area’s uplifting, psychedelic-soul tradition established by groups like Sly and the Family Stone. The septet also have a new album coming in 2018 and will be releasing new music throughout 2017. Stay tuned.
