Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal
Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his soulful (sometimes in-your-face) vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.
Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer and Soul Colossal in 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning six-piece band includes some of the area’s most revered and accomplished musicians. Inspired by Stax, Motown, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal – to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles.
The magic of their live show caught the attention of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), who joined with the band to record their third full-length album. Their most ambitious project to date, Running From Love was recorded at Nashville’s historic Sound Emporium, and once again features Hoyer’s trademark vocals and the band’s signature groove. The album was released on April 8, 2016, on Silver Street Records, and is available on vinyl, CD and digital formats.
"If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer. The Lincoln, Nebraska, soul shouter, and his band of merry soulsters, Soul Colossal, deliver a sound so big, so funky, so wring-the-sweat-out-of-you energetic that it reaches through the speakers and shakes you until you start moving to its groove." - No Depression
Blue Taboo consists of Drew Miller (Bass), Jared Janzen (Guitar/ vocals/ keyboards), Will Brauch (Guitars/ Keyboards), and Julian Ferrara (Drums/ percussion/ keyboards). Blue Taboo's debut album, "Two Worlds" is an experimental rock album. Blue Taboo aspires to push the boundaries of music in many ways, using experimental tones and time signatures.
Since "Two Worlds" Blue Taboo's sound has turned darker and more melodic. The band has introduced new instruments and continues to push the boundaries of rock music while continuously changing their sound. Blue Taboo is currently working on their second full length project, for now known as "Morning Fog".
Blue Taboo's home is Fort Collins, Colorado, but they frequently play up and down the front range. Over their time together Blue Taboo has played FoCoMX, Avogadro’s Number, Moon Room@Summit Music Hall, Everyday Joe's, The Aggie, The Colorado Room, The Downtown Artery, The Mishawaka, Seventh Circle Music Collective, The Oriental Theater, Swing Station, and much more.
