The Soul Movers are an Aussie supergroup of sorts featuring soul singer Lizzie Mack on lead vocals, ex-Red Wiggle Murray Cook on lead guitar, Andy Newman (The Visitors) on bass, Marko Simec (Waiting For Guiness) on keys, and Stuart Wilson (Loose Pills) on drums.
The band saw the launch of their new album, Bona Fide (out March 15 through ABC Music/Universal) at Perth’s Backlot cinema, with industry punters and soul fans lending their support and liking what they heard.
Last year, the Soul Movers made their way to the US to record the tracks for Bona Fide at seven historic studios including Sun Studio, FAME Studios and Royal Studios, to name a few. Not only did they record in these hallowed halls, they were also lucky enough to play with some of the greatest session players such as Spooner Oldham and David Hood, who’ve worked in the past with the likes of Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and Etta James.
And them’s some cool connections. Michael Mastess
