Soulive Embarks On Nationwide Tour



June 27th, 2007 To support the July 31 release of its Stax Records debut No Place Like Soul, Soulive has embarked on a nationwide tour, and will headline dates at such well- known venues as The Fillmore in San Francisco, the House of Blues in Los Angeles and the Nokia Theater in New York City, where the band will play two nights. Soulive will also play several festivals including Lollapalooza on August 3 in Chicago and the Bumbershoot Festival on September 3 in Seattle. No Place Like Soul marks the inaugural release by one of the label’s trio of newly signed artists, which also includes Angie Stone and Isaac Hayes.

With the new addition of Toussaint, a vocalist who has spent the past several years touring with his reggae outfit The China Band, No Place Like Soul is the first Soulive album with a full-time vocalist. Expanding upon the beat-driven instrumentals of 2005’s Break Out, No Place Like Soul combines Toussaint’s vocals with rich soul grooves that call to mind the band’s legendary Stax predecessors. No Place Like Soul features 13 new tracks and is produced by Stewart Lerman who has worked with such disparate talents as Loudon Wainwright III, Dar Williams and Vinicius Cantuaria.

Based in New York, Soulive is comprised of brothers Alan (drums) and Neal Evans (Hammond B-3 organ), as well as Eric Krasno (guitar) and Toussaint (vocals). The band has toured with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, The Roots, John Mayer and Common and recorded with acclaimed artists such as Talib Kweli, Robert Randolph and Chaka Khan.
