Soul Sugar Biography :
Driven by keyboard player Guillaume Metenier (Seven Dub/Pro-Zak Trax, The Hunter/Maine Recordings, Grant Phabao/TIMEC...), Soul Sugar brings you a wise combination of timeless soul jazz, funk, latin and african music... with a personnal twist. Their repertoire includes reinterpretations of rare musical gems as well as original numbers. Each musician brings his own flavour for a soulful and groovy en diable result.

They have blown away the audience of the New Morning club in Paris, opening for Eumir Deodato for their first gig... They will be playing at the second Bam Bam Club party on September, 6th, along with DJ Vadim, DJ Damage, Princess Lea and Radio Salah (La Bellevilloise, Paris). More info here.

The band is actually working on a full lengh album and has just released two vinyl 7 inches. The first one is a blazing rendition of Nico Gomez classic "Ritual" on German label Mocambo, followed by "Nothing but the truth" an original psychedelic funk number, pressed in Jamaica as a limited edition on their own "SugarShack" label. The recordings are produced & mixed by Kid Loco.

Soul Sugar plans to release a few more 7" and an album - and they're looking for labels and/or distributors... Coming next on SugaShack is a new 45 with a cover of Dr Lonnie Smith.

The band is available live as a trio (drums, guitar, organ) or as a quartet or quintet (drums, guitar, organ plus sax, flute and/or percussions).
