Soulstack
Toronto - Ontario - Canada

Soulstack rolled out their full-length debut, “Big Red” in 2012. While at the same time classy as trashy, this debut was the band’s first answer to their own question;“How far can we sonically push roots music?” Itgarnered substantial airplay and chart position withcommercial and college radio. This release was a Hi-Firepresentation of their unique live show, already knownin circles as a finely tuned machine burning down the highway from Detroit influenced fuzz-tinged rootsy rock’n’roll to swampy Alabama soul.

Following suit, in 2013 Soulstack released ‘Five Finger Discount’ to similar applause, accolades and further acclaim. With these two releases garnering international radio play, TV shows, nominations,awards, large north American festival shows and a European debut appearance (Moulin Blues, Netherlands), Soulstack was positioning themselves as a band to watch.

Equally comfortable behind their electric guitars andbig drums, or picking acoustic guitars, backed by percussion and hand drum; Soulstack delivers a visceral experience -  one of seasoned musicians playing the music of their roots with authentic realism. It’s the sound of Staples Singers-inspired southern harmony, tremolo-drenched baritone guitar, with a late-sixties New Orleans-style rhythm section and the gurgle of a Hammond organ driving it along. All with beautiful imagery in the songwriting and as huge a lead vocal as you can slam onto tape out front.

In 2015, Soulstack will release two new projects; their third full-length studio recording, self-titled ‘Soulstack’(2015), and a ‘Live & Acoustic’ DVD/BluRay' release. ‘Soulstack’(2015) was recorded live off the floor with the classic method - six men in a room recorded straight onto 2" analog tape, ‘Soulstack’ captures the band as a moment in time, as one would see and hear the band at a live show, delivering the energy and excitement of their live performance directly onto this recording.

The ‘Live & Acoustic’ DVD/ BluRay captures the band in a broken down, intimate setting, with acoustic guitars, a grand piano, Hammond organ and hand drums /percussion - all in front of a live audience. Another moment in time.
The band, featured on both of these new releases are:Jon Knight ( Vocal/Guitar), Mark Wessenger (Vocal/Piano/Organ), Chris Latta ( Guitars / Baritone),Darryl ‘Harpo’ Peterson (Bass) and Tom Bona (Drums),with guest member Matt Weidinger (Piano/Organ/Wurlitzer/Clavinet).

Some say it’s roots, others say it’s bluesy, swamp-funk,and even rock and roll, but either way, it’s an experience to experience Soulstack. www.soulstack.com
