".... Introducing Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band"

Self-release

The problem with a lot of soul bands is when they get too regimented in their pursuit of pure soul. And there are others who just set themselves up for a fall when incorporating soul into their name. The Burlington-based Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band has neither of those pitfalls to sweat about. The band started up in 2010 and is fronted by the Rochester-born singer Wright, who despite her flexibly gorgeous contralto offers so much more than soul histrionics and window-dressing. On this, the band's debut platter, you'll find a groove that doesn't let up as the band introduces a sort of jam band aesthetic along with things like hip-hop and funk. It's as if the band is taking soul influences from a new generation of bands that augment their sound with it... kind of like influence in reverse. The band is indeed indomitable, but soul is just the beginning.
