“The Soul Rebels are the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong.” VILLAGE VOICE NYC

The Soul Rebels are riding high, receiving national attention with recent performances with Katy Perry and DMX, and featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk series, a debut late night TV appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and a headlining set at the TED Conference. Their explosive stage presence has led to live collaborations with the likes of: Nas, Macy Gray, Portugal. The Man, Robert Glasper, Pretty Lights,  Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, GZA, Macklemore & Lewis, Mobb Deep, Raekwon, Metallica, among many others, and supporting Lauryn Hill and Nile Rodgers.

The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere.

“The Soul Rebels, New Orleans’ finest brass ensemble…” VICE

One of the foremost faces of the current progressive jazz movement, 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated drummer, composer, producer Nate Smith has announced the release of his inspired new album, Kinfolk 2: See The Birds. The highly anticipated follow up to 2017’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated Kinfolk: Postcards From Everywhere arrives via Edition Records.

The album sees Smith joined by an array of diverse fellow artists, including singers Brittany Howard, Amma Whatt, legendary guitarist Vernon Reid, violinist Regina Carter, vibraphonist Joel Ross, rapper Kokayi, and, Michael Mayo, and Stokley Williams (of the pioneering R&B band Mint Condition).
