Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band are on a mission to fill you with music that aims right for the heart and moves your soul without overlooking your ass … and they won’t be defeated in their quest.

It all starts with the voice of Kat Wright, which proves immediately enchanting to any listener. It’s delicate yet powerful; gritty yet highly emotive; sultry and dynamic. It promises and delivers a connection with something outside of yourself. Her style shares a timeless quality with some of history’s greatest singers while remaining something authentic you haven’t heard ever before. These days, as we cycle through scores of new groups looking for a little of that old school magic we’re constantly confronted with watered down throwback acts and impersonators of genuine soul. Kat Wright’s powerhouse vocals diagnose this modern day ailment and heal it on the spot.

The Indomitable Soul Band’s roots draw heavily from all American music to forge a sound that is all their own. Blending Memphis soul and new school RnB with a level of improvisation that more than a few Vermont based bands have been known for, this 7 piece accompaniment is the perfect compliment to Kat’s captivating, genuine vibe. Composed of a rock solid core and a powerful horn section, the ISB keeps you moving and lays it all on the line at every show.

Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band have earned a reputation in Burlington, VT for packing every house they play and always sending people out feeling better than when they walked in. With their first EP in hand (Introducing…), their quest is breaking new ground and they’re aiming right for you.

The Rooks

If you happen to ask THE ROOKS about their sound, chances are they’ll mutter some blurry portrait of Frank Ocean, J Dilla, and the Talking Heads getting drunk at a dive bar in the year 2023, while Justin Vernon waits in the car to drive everyone home. Push them to be a little more specific (and a little less confusing), and they’ll tell you that The Rooks are equal parts kick-back, head-knock, and get-down; the music you rock to at the party, and the perfect soundtrack for the ride home.

The Rooks have spent the last three years and change making noise across New York City and the greater Northeast, gaining substantial recognition for recent releases “Secrets” and “Intermission (Wires)” (both premiered on Okayplayer), as well as hard-hitting performances at Irving Plaza, Mercury Lounge, Brooklyn Bowl and the second highest grossing residency in Pianos NYC history. Their Deli Magazine’s Artist of The Month award (Feb 2014) and recent nomination for the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in the R&B/Soul category have provided further acclaim, and given their parents a tangible means of bragging about their children.

The Rooks are currently prepping the release of their second EP, Wires, and performing their Indie-Soul/R&B sound up and down the East Coast. They would love for you to join the party, because they’re having an incredible time!
