RUBY VELLE & THE SOULPHONICS

Deep, raw funk.
Stax-style Southern soul.
Positively uplifting & ORIGINAL
Motown-channeling anthems. 

Atlanta’s Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics are the heirs to the thrones of the old-school masters.
But they’re much more than just a group of revivalists trying to create a period piece. Powerhouse singer Velle and her band will settle for nothing less than bringing these classic sounds glimmering into the now with a fresh, new contemporary sheen.

It’s this inviting and accessible bravado that has scored the band critical acclaim from
outlets such as The New York Daily News, MTV, Paste and more. And in addition to their
critical success, at a time when record sales are at an all- time industry low, the completely independent, DIY-minded Velle and the Soulphonics sold a quarter-million downloads of their single, “My Dear” on iTunes, landing them in the top 30 on Billboard’s Heatseeker charts and at a stunning #4 on the iTunes R&B charts when their debut album It’s About Time was released in 2012.

The group has shared bills with megastars and indie press darlings alike, including Erykah Badu, The XX, Goodie Mob, Gary Clark Jr., Animal Collective, Feist, Bush, The Wailers, Dumpstaphunk, Lee Fields, Bombino and Kendrick Lamar.

After an explosive set opening for Motown’s legendary “The Temptations,” the band looks towards the release of their sophomore album “State of All Things.” In addition they will
close out the year by releasing several singles.
