Family Company: a funky celebration of soul music!
Family Company is an LA based music collective featuring artists and musicians who celebrate the traditions of soul, blues and r&b music with additional inspiration from Americana, folk, funk, and roots traditions. Recently they released their debut album called ‘Family Company’ and it’s full of funky surprises!
While the idea of Family Company is far bigger than any one individual or even cluster of individuals, the band’s inception was a result of the coming together of Josh Teitelbaum, Alex
Kyhn, and Jason Goldstein. Having backed various artists as a rhythm section, along with putting on ambitious tribute shows to Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, and most recently Ray Charles, Family Company strives to provide both foundational and creative elements to a wide range of musical situations, while bringing people together with the power of music. The new album is a collection of all the recordings Family Company has made over the past year and features a lot of great guest musicians such as Charles Jones and Steve Swatkins!
Over the next 3 months Family Company will be dropping their entire Ray Charles Live show and there will be a video to go along with each tune. Their releases will be two EP’s (Early November and early December), and then the full record (early January).
