The Soul Supporters play early soul, R’n'B, and blues with a sparse rhythm section, stinging guitar, and breathtaking gospel and blues-tinged vocal harmonies. The band’s equally formidable singers Lauren Cervantes and Angela Miller have picked up the torch of Austin blues sirens like Lou Anne Barton, Angela Strehli, and Marcia Ball, and are carrying it on with incredible harmony vocals that must be heard. Influenced by early R n’B artists like The Ikettes, Sugar Pie DeSanto, and Ruth Brown, the band is brewing a potent non-commercialized concoction of “retro-soul” with a growing number of tradition-inspired originals, and is flooring audiences everywhere they happen to play.
