Introducing the Smooth Sounds of Soul Inc

Soul Inc are a recently formed trio consisting of Stephen Granville on lead vocals, Jake Lehdbitte who brings his extensive song writing talents to the group and Lea Rogers who provides his first class expertise in the area of musical production.

They have just released a beautifully crafted four track EP - Heart and Soul Pt 1, which is available to buy on iTunes.

Be Free features a groovy and reggaesque instrumental backing track as well as silky vocals courtesy of Soul Inc's Front man Stephen Granville.

Unafraid on Soundcloud

Unafraid is easily my favourite song from the EP, as it's reminiscent of the music of Swedish Soul sensation Marie Dahlstrøm and as you can see from the review I love her vocal talents so to find another musician with a similar style is simply wonderful.

Some People features catchy guitar riffs courtesy of Lea Rogers also you can't help but savour the percussion hook and also the smooth vocals.

Been A Long Time has a fast paced poppy intro and further showcases Soul Inc's strengths on all levels - vocally, lyrically and also musically i.e. in terms of their instrumental skills.

If you're a soul aficionado or simply love new music then I have a feeling you'll enjoy the melodies of Soul Inc. 

Stephen's vocal abilities always has a habit of surprising just about everyone, he has endless lung power, a fantastic range and control of effortless runs.

He also had the privilege of collaborating with musical greats such as Bryan Ferry, Sharleen Spiteri (Texas) and Dave Stewart. His influences include the likes of Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding

Jake is a versatile songwriter who creates Blues, Rock, Soul and even Dancehall songs. His songs refer back to a time when songs were real songs, which were able to both evoke feeling and tell you a story.

Past collaborations include house music producer Laidback Luke with dance track 'Hypnotize' (sung by Stephen Granville) which reached No.4 in the club dance charts. Jake's influences are Diane Warren, Stevie Wonder and Mariah Carey.

Lea has worked with many musicians and singers in the London area, playing live. recording and producing and writing Spring 2013 saw him playing with classic jazz funk band Atmosfear and members of Incognito and the Jazz Warriors.
