From London, Crowd Company are one of the UK’s top soul funk bands – a modern take on vintage 70s soul funk with unexpected twists and turns. Crowd Company were named as a ‘Top Release of 2019′ on the Craig Charles BBC Radio 6 show. And also their latest album was featured by Craig as a ‘Top Pick for 2020’
The band is known for rich songwriting combined with catchy hooks and features three outstanding soulful vocalists often blending exquisite harmonies. Coupled with virtuoso musicianship – in-the-pocket heavy grooves , Hammond organ, horns, tasteful guitar playing.
With 2 studio albums under their belt to great acclaim their upcoming 3rd album ‘Lowdown’ takes things to a new level with rich song-writing combined with catchy hooks, inventive vocals and tight grooves. The new full-length was co-produced by Alan Evans (Soulive, Ae3) and features the renowned Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom from US Grammy-nominated funk band Lettuce on Sax and Trumpet on all tracks. Single releases from the album have met with rave reviews.
BBC Radio 6 Music’s Craig Charles has championed the band, playing songs from the album extensively on his BBC radio show. The single Express 76 was included in his “Best Releases of the year “ show. Craig also selected the new album as one of his picks of “hot releases of 2020” special, previewing the single ‘A New Direction’.
