More background info:

After their shows at SXSW in 2017, Murray and Lizzie from The Soul Movers drove a black Cadillac from Austin, Texas to Memphis, Tennessee where they stopped to check out Sun Studios then on to Fame and Muscle Shoals Studios in Sheffield, Alabama. On arrival, Black Keys frontman, Dan Auerbach introduced them to legendary Swampers bass man David Hood who gave them a great tour of the famous studio. The Swampers were notorious hit-makers in the 1960’s and 70’s American music charts, having provided the music for artists such as: Aretha Franklin, Wilson Picket, Rolling Stones, Cher, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart and many more who descended upon north Alabama to record with the Swampers and secure that soulful sound now synonymous with Muscle Shoals.

Just over a year later, the Soul Movers return for a week of recording with the Swampers at Muscle Shoals. But not satisfied with one legendary studio, these ‘sound thieves’ of the South swing over to Sun Studios in Memphis where they will restart Sam Phillip’s original recording consollete with the skill (and soldering iron) of Phil Punch from Electric Ave studios in Sydney. Recording in mono at night (tours take up the daylight at Sun) they plan to recreate the old sounds we love so well. Once done at Sun they plan to duck around the corner to Rev. Al Green’s Royal Studios. There, Phil and the ‘Movers will restart Willie Mitchell’s original 8-Track Ampex recorder, and with the power and soul of the Holy Tabernacle choir, belt out some new gospel tunes before hitting the road back to Nashville for some live shows. Pulling up at Freddy’s Bar in New York they are thrilled to share the stage with The King Of Soul’s bass player, Freddy ‘Tears’ Thomas.

What a sonic adventure for these sound thieves!

Drawing on their heavily American influenced roots and playing in the tradition of original R&B, blues, pop and rockin’ soul, the resulting album with be something special to behold.

So come all along to Django Bar, Saturday, September 15 to enjoy hearing the sound thieves proceeds – their sonic booty of treasures and all the roots of their sound – from gospel and blues to swing, swamp and soul with their favourite R&B spices. You don’t need to have the secret recipe to enjoy the flavor of this amazing show interspersed with footage of the recording processes at these iconic, hit-making studios.

Be the first to see the film and here The Soul Movers new album – you might want to book a table early though – this will be a full house - and then some!
