About the Album

“SOULSTACK” is the self-titled third full-length album by Southern Ontarioroots/soul/blues outfit Soulstack. Produced by singer, guitarist andfrontman, Jon Knight, the album was recorded ‘LIVE Off the Floor’ througha vintage NEVE console onto a vintage 2” analog tape machine at
Canterbury Music Company (Toronto).

‘SOULSTACK’ captures the band as a moment in time, as one would see andhear the band at a live show, delivering the energy and excitement of theirlive performance directly onto this recording. Jon Knight’s lead vocals wereall tracked live in Canterbury's world famous "Studio A" in the same room asall the instruments, with background vocals being the only overdubs on this recording.

When Soulstack began production, singer/producer Jon Knight asked Grammy nominated engineer Jeremy Darby "What can we do to give this the sonic vibe of the old records we love?" Jeremy simply pointed to the35-year-old Studer 2" analog tape machine. "We imposed technical
limitations on ourselves that would have been hard to work with for many musicians in today’s digital environment, but we had to have that old school
sound at any expense" recalls Jon.   

From the Tremolo and Reverb drenched baritone guitars of Chris Latta, to the vintage bass sound of Darryl “Harpo” Peterson the album walks the line between soul, roots americana and various other sub-genres with fresh songwriting from the creative, prolific, and often fiercely argumentative team of keyboardist/singer Mark Wessenger and Jon Knight. The drum chairis firmly held by Multi MBA winning drum master Tom Bona.
The album also features 22-year-old keyboard phenom Matt Weidinger on all tracks.
With tracks ranging from soul screamers like “Just Don’t Call it the Blues” and garage blues like “Poison Headache” , “No Man’s Land” to the infectious crowd pleaser  “Can’t Take It With You” and simple beauty of “Little Fire Alive” , there is a wide range of musical and emotional depth within this collection.
This release follows the band’s other innovative and critically acclaimed releases; ‘Five Finger Discount’ (2013), and ‘Big Red’ (2012) which have nowfound Soulstack diverse audiences throughout North America and Europe,with a live show to back it all up. Just ask the thousands of people who saw stand-out performances at Montreal Jazz, Tremblant, Calabogie, Kitchener Blues, Moulin Blues (Netherlands) and more.
As Soulstack expands their reach further into the North American and European markets, ‘SOULSTACK’(2015) is poised as the perfect ‘vehicle’ to help get them there
