Breakin’ Recordz #8: The Soul Rebels:
On Breakin’ Recordz, we ignore all industry hype and politics, and bring you the stories behind the best acts that music lovers from all around the world should know about. From independent bands to nationally signed acts, we’re here to promote a diverse collection of voices from all genres of music and do what we love to do best, BREAKIN’ RECORDZ!
The guests for this episode are three members of the brass ensemble from New Orleans, The Soul Rebels, Julian Gosin (trumpet), Lumar LeBlanc (snare drum), and Marcus Hubbard (trumpet). The Soul Rebels blend elements of contemporary hip-hop, trap, soul, bounce, and pop production mixed with world music and jazz, and recently released their newest album Poetry in Motion.
During our discussion, we talked about the history of the band and how they evolved over the years, along with how they became one of the go-to backing bands and eventually performing with the likes of Katy Perry, Nas, Marilyn Manson, DMX, G-Eazy, Rakim, Joey Bada$$, Robin Thicke, Metallica, Rakim, and GZA. We also get into the new album Poetry in Motion and they share some stories about the making of a few of the songs.
The Soul Rebels are currently on their Winter 2020 tour, supporting the release of Poetry in Motion. Go to thesoulrebels.com/events for the complete listing of dates.
