In-Store Performances

The Soul Movers – Live In-Store Friday March 29th!

The Soul Movers are back with a brand-new album, Bona Fide. Their third album, recorded across seven legendary studios in the USA (including Royal, Sun, Fame and Muscle Shoals!), the tracks crackle with the intensity of a band at the peak of their powers. The core foursome took their brand of soul to the USA and have brought back an album that will stop you in your tracks.

Fronted by Lizzie Mack and her brother in soul, Murray Cook, the Soul Movers also include Andy Newman (The Visitors) and Marko Simec (Waiting For Guinness) with Stuart Wilson (Loose Pills) and Glenn Abbott (Super Massive) sharing stick shifts.

With a launch and a half coming up at The Evelyn Hotel, Fitzroy (March 30th), we are very pleased to welcome our buddies The Soul Movers back to the Basement Discs stage on Friday, March 29th to show off some songs from the much-anticipated new album Bona Fide. Don’t miss this sensational lunchtime show before their full launch the following night!

“You want a word to describe the Soul Movers? How about electric. Earning their stripes as one of Australia’s hardest working bands, The Soul Movers have taken their brand of soul to the USA and back again. Stand by for Bona Fide – cut in a series of iconic studios including Fame, Muscle Shoals Sound, Royal and Sun Studios where the band laid down some of the finest grooves you’re likely to hear in 2019. Buckle up … the Soul Movers are coming.” – Sean Sennett, music writer, author and ABC Radio music journalist and radio broadcaster.
