#What’sNew..? Silver Souled are here to play in the mountains!

As the ’18-’19 Après Ski Bands winter season continues to move forward in a snowy, mountainous melange of musical greatness, we welcome the legendary Silver Souled to the the Alps! Hailing from Bristol and formed in 2014, Naomi, Robbie, James, Martin and Matthew met and studied together at BIMM Bristol, attaining their degrees in Professional Musicianship. Their mutual love of all music from the 1960’s to present day R&B ensured this 5 piece were simply meant to be together. And take it from us, when you see a band perform for the first time and they make your whole body tingle within the opening bars of their first song, you know you’re witnessing something very special indeed.
From Stevie Wonder to David Bowie, Beyonce to Chaka Khan, Justin Timberlake to Otis Reading – this band’s full and varied style will knock your soulful socks off! Naomi’s magnificently powerful voice will grab you from the first note, right until the last.
Collectively, the band’s funky, soulful sound combined with a keyboard section to give a modern day twist on all genres, will boost the vibe on the classics and lift the up to date songs to the next level of a performance. Silver Souled are a uniquely gorgeous combination of musicians (and they are so very lovely, making them an absolute joy to work with..!) so what more could you ask for in the ultimate party band?!

Give your ears and eyes a treat this new year and check out Silver Souled at any of the following venues whilst they are with us in the mountains. And get ready for the body tingles – Silver Souled are here to make you and your après party sparkle!

Alex Davies solo work

We’re expecting great things from Alex Davies this summer as some inspirational alpine writing has lead to so some sweat and tears in the studio…. here’s a very small excerpt of what’s to come See video.

After first appearing on Britains got talent as a finalist and then three consecutive winter seasons gigging around the ski resorts of Meribel, Tignes, Courchevel and Val D’Isere, Alex has matured as one of the leading solo musicians on the European scene – he mixes great covers of well known classic with his own infectious ska/hip hop influenced pop tunes.

If you’ve never seen Alex Davies live then he will be performing in and around Wales and the Southwest England this summer, with a residency weekend in August in Aldernay see his own FB site for more details
