What is it about Atlanta Georgia’s Soulhound that makes them so special? Maybe it’s because in a sea of interchangeable, cookie cutter bands & music, Soulhound creates music that just doesn’t sound like their contemporaries.


Soulhound has been described as “The Meters meets Hendrix meets Steely Dan”. Clearly Soulhound are inspired disciples of the groove-oriented R&B, Soul & greasy Funk of the late sixties & seventies. Their influences range from Tower of Power & Parliament/Funkadelic to Graham Central Station, The Beatles, Phish & Miles Davis. With their unique brand of song-based, groove-oriented music, the band’s shows have become a crossroads where fans of all these genres can meet & get their groove on.


Soulhound has played to audiences as far south as Florida and as north as Virginia, have made appearances on television including NBC-TV and local Atlanta channel Peachtree TV. 


The band has shared the stage with both national & regionally touring groups like The Temptations, Icona Pop, Blues Traveler, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Galactic, Mofro, Soulive, The Zac Brown Band, Col. Bruce Hampton, Railroad Earth, & many others.


Soulhound’s 1st EP “A Quickie In The Cave” was released in the summer of 2009.  Their latest “Kudzu Rising” will be available in 2016.
