Soul music will never go out of style. Just like Otis Redding and the Allman Brothers spawned from the same bluesy roots, Gaslight Street melds pure Southern rock with charismatic vocals, traipsing the boundaries of blues and funk.
Born in the growing musical bastion of Charleston, SC, Gaslight’s regional prescence has grown behind the release of their debut album, Blue Skies For Fools. Featuring the unmistakably soulful lyrics and vocals of Campbell Brown, the disc strongly stakes the band’s place as worthy inheritors to the Southern soul tradition.
Lead singer Brown initially made his name with country/rock band Live Oak, before recruiting guitarist/organist Jason Stokes to join him in Charleston in 2006, forming a more songcraft-oriented band in Gaslight Street. Drummer Brooks DuBose and bassist Frank Nelson go well beyond backing up the band, providing a steady rhythm that’s both consistently solid and innovative.
With a sound grown from influences ranging from the Neville Brothers to The Black Crowes, Gaslight Street manages to consistently maintain a signature style that holds its own with the best Southern-fried soul acts of today. They’re currently at work on their follow-up to Blue Skies For Fools, with plans for an early 2011 release.
