Album Notes
"Cookin' For The Soul" describes what these boys do best. With lyrics that cures what ails you and music that helps it all go down nice and easy, Soul Kitchen loves to play for audiences all across the land.

Soul Kitchen's trip started off with John Huie's vision to put good music on the map with meaningful lyrics. Standing for the hope he got from up above, and knew that he'd be fighting off all types of pressure to either sell out lyrically or musically. John loves his Stevie Wonder, Sly & the Family Stone with a side of Bill Mathers, adding Chick Corea's jazz and the Beatle's storytelling. Without the classification of a certain genre, here's the recipe he has come up with:

4 cups funk
2 cups rock
2 cups jazz
3 cups jam
7 cloves garlic
7 gallons fun

Funk brothers Dave Housel and Chris Taylor were an easy addition, being two of his best friends. Their sax and trumpet adds another dimension usually unheard of in today's music- interesting horn lines. They add counter-melodies to color the vocals, and they aren't afraid to play out and jam. Complimenting their treble is the virtuous bass playing of Dave Munch, a Philadelphia youngin' usually associated with the Latin scene. His Jaco Pastorious influences are evident as he blazes up and down his ax with gentle ferociousness. Dan Huie is the perfect second vocalist, blending harmonies the way only a brother could (and making fun of John the way only a brother could). His hip-hop influences their style and his guitar flavors up the mids with old-fashioned funk rifts. When he's not strumming, he picks up his violin for some velocity and tranquility. Matt Frank, last but not least, is as flexible as they come, seasoning the percussion and filling in the pocket with his own stylish fusion of jazz, rock, and funk.

Playing since 1999, their second CD has been a long time coming. They've stayed together not only to put together great music, but because of their friendship. Audiences come back not only because of their music (or how the band will bust on John next), but also to see them having fun on stage. Their fun is evident not only on sK's faces, but on their fans as well. As the band sings out their favorite songs or dances to the fun, they encourage all to gather around and eat!

"So give up that slop you been eatin' now
Soul Kitchen's doin' the cookin' for your feedin' now
Guaranteed to satisfy your hungry soul
Yum, tasty, nutritious! Come on back for mo'!"

~From Cookin' for the Soul
