Soul II Soul
Soul II Soul featuring Jazzie B, Caron Wheeler and full live band
Last updated: 15th May 2012
Soul II Soul are back and better than ever! Led by producer / vocalist / songwriter Jazzie B., Soul II Soul are one of the most innovative dance / R&B outfits from the UK, creating a seductive, deep R&B that borrowed from Philly soul, disco, reggae, and '80s hip-hop.
Originally featuring Jazzie B., producer / arranger Nellee Hooper, and instrumentalist Philip "Daddae" Harvey, the musical collective came together in the late '80s. The group had a residency at the Africa Centre in London's Covent Garden, which led to a record contract with 10, a subsidiary of Virgin. Two singles, "Fairplay" and "Feel Free," began to attract attention both in clubs and in the press.
Featuring the vocals of Caron Wheeler, Soul II Soul's third single, "Keep on Movin'," reached the U.K. Top Ten in March of 1989. Released in the summer of 1989, "Back to Life" also featured Wheeler and became another Top Ten hit, putting Soul II Soul on the map.
Watch Soul II Soul perform an exclusive full live band show with Jazzie B, Caron Wheeler and more at Islington Assembly Hall. Soul II Soul tickets for their 2011 show at the Roundhouse sold out in record time so don't miss the opportunity to get your tickets from GET ME IN!
