The Sully Band – ‘Let’s Straighten It Out!’
‘Let’s Straighten It Out!’ is the spellbinding debut album from the magnificent The Sully Band. It is a stunning soul and funk collection of songs that you need to hear this weekend.
‘When the Battle Is Over’ opens the release, and it is instantly addictive from the get-go. We love the evolution of the instrumentation as the song progresses and the stunning vocal performances.
‘I Wish It Would Rain’ is a standout song. The gorgeous riffs and tight rhythm section lay the solid foundation for the track to grow.
In addition, ‘If I Could Only Be Sure’ had us hooked with the melodic bass, gorgeous keys and textured guitars. It is a song filled with vivid colour and intoxicating melodies.
Finally, ‘Higher and Higher’ closes the release, and it will have you reaching for the repeat button!
The band is comprised of accomplished musicians from all around the world. Robert ‘Sully’ Sullivan and his nine-piece band have curated an album that will stand the test of time.
Band members include Grammy Award-winning bass player James East (Eric Clapton, Elton John, and Michael Jackson), sax-flute-harp-player Tripp Sprague (Kenny Loggins, The Little River Band, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and The Four Tops), and trumpet and flugelhorn player Steve Dillard (The Righteous Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd).
Sully says about the release, “We focused on love themes with this record because we wanted to bring the focus back to something personal, given all the stress of the last couple of years,”
He continues, “We’ve all dealt with a lot of twisted emotions lately, so ‘let’s straighten it out’ feels like the right theme for the moment.”
‘Let’s Straighten It Out!’ is a dynamic and exciting release destined to get your toes tapping. The Sully Band are clearly excellent musicians in their own right, and when they play together, magic happens!
