SouLutions Live at Campsoul 2014

SouLutions Biography

Newcastle’s not known as a hotbed of soul talent but that may be set to change with the emergence of new soul duo SOULUTIONS. The team is a girl/boy pairing (Louise and Steve) and they write and produce all their own material. Louise is SouLution’s singer and she’s been winning talent shows since she was knee high to that proverbial grasshopper! More recently she received rapturous applause when she joined Candi Staton on stage at one of David Gest’s soul extravaganzas.

There is no doubt SOULUTIONS are the hottest soul act of the summer. Their irresistible ‘Listen’ has taken the soul world by storm and the fab Drizabone mix of the song rightly and proudly sits atop every credible soul chart. The infectious ‘Listen’ is starting to make an impact Stateside too and after a quick listen to some of the band’s other songs, it’s clear that SouLutions are no one trick ponies!
