Chapter: SOUL is a 4-piece modern funk and soul band featuring Calvin Johnson Jr. as bandleader and on saxophone, and the legendary Kirk Joseph of Dirty Dozen Brass Band on sousaphone.
The band formed after Calvin spent many months of touring with the Dozen, trading ideas with Kirk and recognizing that it was time to bring some new ideas to the scene. They take New Orleans funk and soul to a new level, re-imagining classic tunes with modern sounds and innovative arrangements. Currently, Calvin and Kirk are accompanied by Kashonda Bailey on keys, and Raymond Weber Jr. on drums.
Chapter: SOUL’s self-released debut is due later in 2017, and the band will be bringing a live preview of the original tunes featured on the record.
