What is it about Atlanta Georgia’s Soulhound that makes them so special? Maybe it’s because in a sea of interchangeable, cookie cutter bands & music, Soulhound creates music that just doesn’t sound like their contemporaries.
Soulhound has been described as “The Meters meets Hendrix meets Steely Dan”. Clearly Soulhound are inspired disciples of the groove- oriented R&B, Soul & greasy Funk of the late sixties & seventies. Their influences range from Tower of Power & Parliament/Funkadelic to Graham Central Station, The Beatles, Phish & Miles Davis. With their unique brand of song- based, groove- oriented music, the band’s shows have become a crossroads where fans of all these genres can meet & get their groove on.
Soulhound has played to audiences as far south as Florida and as north as Virginia, have made appearances on television including NBC-TV and local Atlanta channel Peachtree TV.
The band has shared the stage with both national & regionally touring groups like The Temptations, Icona Pop, The 4 Tops, The Zac Brown Band, Blues Traveler, Grace Potter & the
Nocturnals, Galactic, Mofro, Soulive, Col. Bruce Hampton, Railroad Earth, & many others.
Soulhound’s 1st EP “A Quickie In The Cave” was released in the summer of 2009. Their latest “Kudzu Rising” will be available in 2016.
Finally, the band has received accolades such as:
Appeared on WXIA NBC-TV & Peachtree TV
Selected by The Sunday Paper as one of their “Local Bands We Love”
Nominated Atlanta's top local band 2006 by the Atlanta Journal Constitution [+]
