SoCal Hunnies - Groovy Soul Inspired Rock Trio New Single "Don't Ever Leave Your Man or Woman"

Don’t let the geography of the name fool ya, SoCal Hunnies are a groovy three piece band based in Toronto. Their single “Don’t Ever Leave Your Man or Woman” has a quick beat with a funky bassline that really pushed the track into the soul inspired world where they like to live. The guitar solos are extremely cool in this track going from a spacious, chilled out zone into a hectic shred all while keeping the track  flowing nicely. SoCal Hunnies will be playing the Springtide Music Festival in Uxbridge on April 26th. – Kris Gies





A Quick Chat With Ural Thomas

Ural Thomas made his return to the stage in 2017, when he and his backing band signed with Tender Loving Empire. Though he hadn’t performed professionally since the early 70’s, Ural never stopped loving music. This made his comeback a smooth and entertaining one. Equally as strong as his love for music is his love for people. With any music he makes, his goal is to lighten the heart of those who are listening. To quote; “If we make someone smile we’re satisfied. They’re ain’t no difference between us. It’s all love and brotherhood. If folks listen to my record and feel that I’ll feel very blessed.” We got in touch with Ural for a quick chat about his return to the music business. 

The Deli Portland: After taking such a long break, what prompted you to start recording and performing again?

Well, I missed the people and I was so happy to find out the people missed me!

What has it been like working with Tender Loving Empire?

We love em, and look forward to developing the friendship further.

Can you tell us more about why you decided to name your debut album The Right Time? 

Because it is just that, it is the right time. All moments in life are the right time because tomorrow is not promised to any of us.

What do you enjoy most about performing? 

Connection to the people.

What do you think your next goal is as an artist? 

We have discovered a love of touring in Europe and we'd like to go back.


You can see Ural Thomas & The Pain live April 19th at Revolution Hall, alongside Federale, and Orquestra Pacifico Tropical.

From the digital submissions: Shanny kicks off the year right with debut album Swirl Diet

NYC’s Shanny is an artist in every sense of the word, and she is starting her year right with debut album Swirl Diet, a record that displays the very best elements of neo-soul, hip-hop. Wonderfully layered with funky basslines, jazzy chord progressions, soulful vocals, and conscious-driven lyrics, this solo effort sounds like a sign of great things to come. Shanny has been using multi-disciplinary arts (visual art, theatre, and music) to address today’s social issues and give a greater voice to movements of female empowerment. She is also a traveler, yoga instructor, event planner, and more but - as you will be able to tell from the track below - she is a musician above all else. - Rene Cobar

The Jack Moves ride new album's momentum to Knitting Factory 04.04

The Jack Moves are at it again with a new single “Money Clouds” which once again puts their love for soul/rhythm and blues on full display. The group’s new LP Free Money brings into focus the journey of the duo who marries decades of music effortlessly and applies them to their contemporary sound. The Jack Moves offers the groovy basslines of the ‘70s, the urban feel of hip-hop’s ‘80s heyday, the R&B renaissance of the ‘90s and just the right amount of modern indie rock. The New Jersey natives are bringing their smooth style to The Knitting Factory on April 4, and you will not want to miss it. - Rene Cobar

Turkuaz releases video for "Superstatic" + plays BK Steele on 04.06

Never failing to impress, Brooklyn native group Turkuaz has released a music video for their brand new single “Superstatic” which was shot in Brooklyn and directed by Dani Brandwein and Jocelyn Piece. Turkuaz's lead singer and guitarist Dave Brandwein produced the video which encapsulate the colorful and creative nature of the band via green screen shots that have “an extra sprinkling of strangeness.” Everything was shot inside Brooklyn Bowl, which adds an extra touch of locality to the work. “Superstatic” is from the band’s 2018 release Life In The City, which once again puts Turkuaz’s excellent blend of funk and soul on full display and continues to cement the band’s status in “The Borough of Trees.” Turkuaz hits the road April 4 for a thirty-three date U.S. tour. - Rene Cobar
