Hustle Souls FREE LIVESTREAM @ Asheville Music Hall 8-24-2018
Wow…. Asheville Music Hall was a sentimental-surreal-party and close to this chapter for Hustle Souls. It took us years of work to build to where we are today and I’d like to send a lot of love to Sean McCann and Tommy Moore and ALL of YOU who have helped to push us to this point! It wasn’t easy and wasn’t always pretty but we have learned a LOT and are really proud of what we have accomplished! These pictures from Tom Farr capture a good bit of the energy that was flowing all night last Friday!
Hustle Souls – Once upon a time in the budding music-mecca of Asheville, NC, a man with a trumpet, an acoustic guitar and a mission metamorphosed into the synergistic soul/indie-pop band, Hustle Souls. With 2 ½ years of touring under their belt, the band’s feel-good, modern meets vintage sound, have earned them a reputation as one of the region’s most promising independent acts.
Lead singer and keyboardist, Billy Litz’s rootsy influences and vulnerable compositions are embroidered, garnished, and decked out by a powerhouse soul band. The rhythm section, Tommy Moore and Sean McCann aggressively usher in a tight jazz and R&B influence, while guitarist, Chris Everett, brings the group to the next level with his rock-ribbed feel.
In 2017 the band was approached by gold and platinum mixer and producer Eric “Mixerman” Sarafin (Ben Harper, the Broadcast, Pharcyde) about making a record which has set the ball rolling at a different pace. Hustle Souls’ eclectic sound will soon come together on their debut full-length album, “Color.”
