Atlanta's Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics will be stopping by Songbyrd Friday 6/22 to meet fans, sign albums, and play a few songs in the Cafe!!!

Deep, raw funk. Stax-style Southern soul. Uplifting Motown-channeling anthems. Atlanta’s Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics are the heirs to the thrones of the old-school masters.

The independent, DIY-minded Velle and the Soulphonics sold a quarter-million downloads of their single “My Dear” on iTunes, landing them in the top 30 on Billboard’s Heatseeker charts and at a stunning #4 on the iTunes R&B charts when their debut album It’s About Time was released in 2012.

The group has shared bills with megastars and indie press darlings alike, including Larkin Poe, The Temptations, Erykah Badu, The XX, Goodie Mob, Gary Clark Jr., Animal Collective, Feist and Kendrick Lamar.

Previous singles “Broken Woman,” (immediately appeared on Spotify's Official "Still Got the Blues" playlist) and "Call Out My Name" in combination with their successful PledgeMusic campaign, as well as tour dates all summer long, round out their new path into music's history.

And they continue to blaze a trail into the hearts of music fans with their latest single from their sophomore album, “State of All Things” which premiered on PASTE Magazine kicking off their preorder for the album. Their full length album, titled State of All Things, dropped 4/27/18 on all platforms. They can currently be heard on radio stations across the US including Sirius XMU.
