Smoove & Turrell live, Friday 9 August
Phonic FM’s Friday Modulation presents the return of Smoove & Turrell to Exeter Phoenix as part of a funk and soul weekender.
The story of Smoove & Turrell began in the post millennium North East of England with a group of working class lads and a shared passion for soul.
As always though with Smoove & Turrell the highs and the lows of life are represented and the hard times realism of some of the lyrics is tempered by the irrepressible dancefloor euphoria of others.
2018 saw the Georgie soul crew return with a stunning fifth album Mount Pleasant, after the success of Crown Posada, which gave the band multiple BBC Radio 2 playlists and 6 music spins.
2019 will see the band celebrating 10 years in the business with the release of ‘Solid Brass – 10 Years of Northern Funk’ a retrospective of the biggest tracks from their blistering live shows with the added bonus of two new tracks – I’m A Man and Give It Back.
The band will tour ‘Solid Brass‘ throughout 2019 with a launch show on Feb 21 at the Jazz Café London.
