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.

Two years in the making, Remember is the full-length debut from New England's Indie/West-African Psychadelic darlings, Barika. A mesmerizing blend of highly danceable polyrhythmic grooves mixed with ethereal dub-scape, Barika (pronounced body-kah) is the brain-child of Kamel N'goni player and Percussionist Craig Myers. The Kamel N'goni, a traditional West African harp from the Wassoulou region of Mali is the driving force on the album, peppered by deep horn, keyboard and bass grooves with uncompromising, sharp hitting drums. From Burlington, Vermont, the seven-piece ensemble features Caleb Bronze (Drums), JP Candelier (Bass), Andric Severence (Keyboards), Craig Myers (Kamel N'goni, Percussion) and a powerhouse of horns with Dave Purcell (Trumpet), Gordon Clark (Trombone) and Deva Racusin (Tenor Sax).

Performer Magazine called Barika "wholly rhythmic, captivating audiences with the beautiful, hypnotic way in which they interweave melody and groove to create something that is not only danceable, but incredibly interesting to listen to. Barika creates a soundscape of funk soaked in psychedelic, West African resonance. The outfit stands out because they are multidimensional."

Band leader Craig Myers has studied traditional West African music for the past 13 years, traveling through Mali, the Ivory Coast, Senegal, and Guinea and has toured extensively over the past several years with both Rubblebucket and Mike Gordon. Special guest Scott Murawski (Max Creek) with join the band on guitar for several songs.
