The Solomon Cole Band release their debut album 'Bruises'

21 October 2016 - 0 Comments

Waiheke Island based blues/rock/soul four-piece The Solomon Cole Band release their debut album Bruises on October 21st 2016.


Bruises
is a collection of explosive and exalted blues and  dark, soaring soul-based songs landing somewhere between The Black Keys, Mark Lanegan and even Led Zeppelin.
 
Case in point is lead single Ring Your Bell - a driving blues track with an instantly engaging electric guitar riff. Tongue-in-cheek lyrics set the scene as the soul inflections of vocalist Sophia Faalogo seal the deal, invoking the likes of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, ZZ Top and Tina Turner.

In the past 18 months since their inception, the SCB have supportedMartha Davis & The Motels, opened New Zealand Fashion Week 2015, headlined 2 nights at Okere Falls Beer Festival plus delivered many sold out nights at venues on Waiheke Island.
 
The brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Solomon Cole & bassist Lee Catlin, The Solomon Cole Band also includes soul vocalist Sophia Faalogo (The Reputations, Payola) & drummer Dione Denize.

The album was mixed by veteran NZ engineer Nick Abbott (Goldenhorse, The Datsuns, Crowded House) upon his return from LA. Nick states, "Bruises is a monument to a scene, a freedom and independence. Long may it continue."
 
Bruises is to be released via Aeroplane Music Records and will be available for purchase from iTunes, Bandcamp and all good digital outlets. Physical copies will be purchasable from Bandcamp and live shows.

The SCB will celebrate the album release with the following shows:
 
Sunday Oct 23rd – Peacock Sky Vineyard, Waiheke -
Tickets
Saturday Oct 29th - Portland Public House ( Album Release)
Saturday Nov 5th - The Yot Club, Raglan -
