Grace Love & The True Loves
Grace Love and the True Loves is an original 9-piece soul sensation from Seattle, WA.
Following in the footsteps of Stax, Motown, King and Daptone artists, but with a sound all their own, Grace Love and the True Loves are setting a course as the next hot soul and funk number ready to sweep the nation with true cross-over appeal. On vocals, Grace Love is Seattle’s shining jewel of grit, beauty and power – think Etta James and Betty Wright meet Mahalia Jackson. Backed by the True Loves, her vocals float effortlessly over kickin’ back beats, smart horns, syncopated rhythms and sweet B-3 color. It’s the hip swinging, booty shaking, heart freeing sound you crave to hear live, but rarely do.
Recorded directly to tape at Studio Litho, the full length self-titled album, is sure to bring rave reviews with a sound altogether unique to the Pacific Northwest. The debut 45 singles, “Fire” and “Say What You Gotta Say”, showcase the energy and freshness of Grace Love and the True Loves.
Flea Market Funk says, “this floor stomping, dance floor filler is a blues filled soul side that can not be denied”. We think you will agree.
Well I certainly agree with that last statement! The moment I heard, “Let You Go” on KEXP my mouth dropped and let out a long awe filled WOW! Great energy by this awesome funky soul band powered by Grace Love’s incredible voice…Can I get a HEY!! Yes! This is what I’m talking about…great music!

SMILE is a Soft Psyche dream pop group from Melbourne Australia who are about to release their debut album on Smooch Records March 25th, 2016, and on Bandcamp April 1st, 2016.
I enjoy skimming Bandcamp for new artists that I haven’t heard, so when I do find something that catches my ear, I need to tell the world about what I found. Here is one such artist called, “SMILE”. Not only does the bands name stand out, I mean we all need to find ways to make us smile, but their song “Boundless Plains to Share” really caught my ear and made me smile. I loved it right off the bat, and so I get to share another awesome song with music fans today that hopefully will put a smile on your face. 8-) Check out their song below and be sure to visit the links provided.
