Ruby Velle & The Soul Phonics
-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. But they’re much more than just a group of revivalists trying to create a period piece. Powerhouse singer Velle and her band will settle for nothing less than bringing these classic sounds glimmering into the now with a fresh new modern sheen.
- Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics have made a name for themselves captivating audiences with their stirring live performances. They’re a world-class modern soul revue topped off with the cherry of Velle’s sultry voice, as she deftly toggles between sweetly crooned R&B tunes and expertly belted barn-burning get-downs that can instantly jolt a roomful of wallflowers into a wild dance party.
- It’s this inviting and accessible bravado that has scored the band critical acclaim from outlets such as The New York Daily News, MTV, Paste and more. The group has shared bills with megastars and indie press darlings alike, including Erykah Badu, The XX, Goodie Mob, Gary Clark Jr., Animal Collective, Feist and Kendrick Lamar.
- Bringing together psychedelic rock sounds of the golden past and the new sound of modern soul, Edgewood Heavy is the hottest band in Atlanta. Described as "A mixture of Andre 3000, Prince, and Erykah Badu," their shows are high energy funk fests sythesizing vast styles of music into one rocking good time. They have taken the Atlanta scene by storm since their birth, hosting their first music festival 'Edgewoodstock' in August 2021 alongside the release of their premiere single, "Misery," and their beer, 'Edgewood Hefe.' They are expanding their tour locations across the country alongside their most recent release "Save My Soul" and recording their first full length project while preparing for Edgewoodstock 2022 on August 20th.

Leone is the blast from the past we didn't know we all needed. His EP, Angst, released in 2019, was deemed to be "the funkadelic throwback to a beloved bygone era." To bring the music on the road, Leone and his band, the Ascension, weave a self-reflexive musical fabric that juxtaposes funk, hip hop, jazz & soul with support from singer-songwriter Srae.
