There is something in the water overseas. Apparently if you drink enough of it, it nourishes your body with blue-eyed soul. Robbie Williams drinks its. Duffy drinks it. Amy Winehouse drinks it with lots of alcohol. The list of talent goes on and on. Soon you are going to know Lucky Soul if you don't already. I've been finding not many do yet, at least not around here, so let me fill you in.
Lucky Soul is British an old school style soul band fronted by the lovely Ali Howard. They bring a little bit of radio friendly pop flavor to their brand of soul. It is very boppy and danceable.
Lucky Soul is a full band, not a solo artist. Don't be confused by all the pictures of Howard. Their debut album,The Great Unwanted, sold over 50,000 copies.They released an album on their own label despite an offer from legendary Bowie producer Tony Visconti. Their follow up, A Coming of Age, will be out April 5th. I'm looking forward to hearing it.
Here is the video for Lucky Soul's single "White Russian Doll" off of A Coming of Age.
