Night one of The Soulphonics album release party featuring a headlining set from Charles Walker & The Dynamites,10 pieces of straight-up, badass deep funk and super soul!
“Itʼs About Time,” a long overdue full-length album from Atlantaʼs
Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics brings on an arsenal of soulful origi-
nal music and poignant lyrics. The album features 10 original
songs chiming in at just over 40 minutes in length, recorded on
1/2ʼʼ 8 track tape by producer and keyboardist Spencer Garn.
Fronting the 7 piece powerhouse band is Ruby Velle, a Canadian
born little lady of southern influence and East Indian decent,
whose voice and appearance often surprise people when they
hear and see her live for the first time.
Leading the pack is “My Dear,” a powerful back-beat soul groove
that sets the tone for the record and teases the listener to hear
more. Then the track “Medicine Spoon” drops into a fast paced
funky drumbeat, perfect for sampling as the genre is known for.
Throughout the album there are medium and fast paced songs
with tasteful horn arrangements and full string ensembles featured
on “The Agenda” and “Mr. Wrong.” “Itʻs About Time” is the
bandʼs foray into political commentary, offering an epic and enor-
mous sound mixed with meaningful, timely lyrics.
Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics' roots are embedded in the rich
sound and history of Georgia soul, beginning with the early 50's
and 60's R&B that became so well known around the world. Having
performed countless gigs since their inception, and with a slew of
45rpm singles already under their belts, the band has already
contributed heavily to the steadily increasing awareness of genuine
rhythm and blues music that exists today. They pack clubs and
festivals with their original brand of soul, all of which is written and
recorded in Atlanta.
