THE SOUL IMMIGRANTS are a hard gigging soul and funk band from South London; the core members are Emrys Baird – Guitar / Vocals; David Bouet – Drums; Dee Byrne – Sax and Al Gibson Bass / Keys. Right now the boys are putting the finishing touches to a new album – ‘Back From The Brink’ coming out Nov 15th on Lateralize records.

To whet our appetites, the first single has just been released – an incendiary version of Barbara Lynn’s ‘I’m a Good Woman’. The vocal’s down to Ria Currie and other guests on the cut are Mark Ashfield (The Get Up) on Hammond organ, Ian Bailey (The Boom Yeh) on saxes and Dave Boraston (Stone Foundation) on trumpet and Kat Sandel on background vocals and between them they really do create an authentic mid 60s raw soul feel … think Koko Taylor, Sugar Pie Desanto and, yes, Barbara Lynn.
