Durand Jones & the Indications
Bayou-born soul sensation, Durand Jones got his start in the church, after being forced to sing in the choir of his rural hometown Hillaryville, Louisiana because his Grandmother thought he sang too much at home. When his music career took him to Bloomington, Indiana, he was selected to join the legendary Indiana University Soul Revue, and it was through his involvement that he met writer/producer duo Aaron Frazer and Blake Rhein. The three began writing original soul music, recording themselves straight to tape in the basements of Bloomington - and their debut album is now available on our record label, Colemine Records.
SolSatellite is a name with many layers, Sol being the sun, a solfege pitch, and a play on the word “soul”, and Satellite referring to both a celestial body which revolves around a planet and an artificial body which is put in place to orbit the Earth. SolSatellite is the embodiment of this idea through music by combining powerful, soulful vocals with funkadelic rock-based instrumentals and orbiting an eclectic fusion sound. Each member of this five-piece band draws from a unique musical background with a multitude of influences in order to pioneer a new genre, coined nu-soul funk. The same way SolSatellite brings elements of several musical styles together, the band also aspires to bring people from all walks of life together to share in their pursuit of music, dancing, and spreading the love.
