Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal – Featured on The Voice in 2017!
Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk, and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his soulful (sometimes in-your-face) vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.
The magic of their live show caught the attention of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), who joined the band to record their third full-length album. Their most ambitious project to date, Running From Love, was recorded at Nashville’s historic Sound Emporium, and once again features Hoyer’s trademark vocals and the band’s signature groove. The album was released on April 8, 2016, on Silver Street Records, and is available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.
The hard-working band completed several national tours in 2015 and 2016, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states each year, including opening for George Clinton, Charles Bradley, Booker T Jones, and Muscle Shoals Revue. Their year-round tour schedule took them from coast to coast, including several major summer music festivals. The band’s fevered pace continues in 2017, with Hoyer appearing as a contestant on Season 12 of the hit TV music show, The Voice, a European tour, a live album release, numerous festival appearances, and a new EP in the works.
“If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer. The Lincoln, Nebraska, soul shouter, and his band of merry soulsters, Soul Colossal, deliver a sound so big, so funky, so wring-the-sweat-out-of-you energetic that it reaches through the speakers and shakes you until you start moving to its groove.” – No Depression
