Souls in Rhythm
Calgary-based Souls in Rhythm (a.k.a. SiR) takes the fundamentals of classic funk and soul and blends them with modern R&B. Rather than being impressionists of master/classic artists of the genre, SiR has a modern sound and seeks to innovate and contemporize a musical form they love. While they are groove-based, they are songwriting-centred. Canadian Musician Magazine elaborates; “smooth, soulful grooves, melody lines that stay in your head and polished vocals”, SiR’s music proudly pays homage to tradition, while at the same time expanding boundaries.
Souls in Rhythm has toured much of the nation and has opened for many notable artists such as American hip-hop icon Common, and R&B supergroup Boyz II Men (to name a couple). Over the past couple of years, they’ve released a steady string of knock-out singles, all composed from accepting a songwriting residency at the incredible Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity. They are currently writing towards their fourth full-length album to be released this fall.
