The Soul Inspirations
“Combining hot Southern Soul, jazz harmony and latin rhythms, David Deon & The Soul Inspirations aim at the heart and mind. With performances that range from a romantic croon to bluesy wail to the sanctified holler, The Soul Inspirations aren’t just another R&B band. Their debut release, “Let It Go”, evokes the likes of Chic, Steely Dan, and Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.
In his 30 years performing, David Deon has shared the stage with Wilson Pickett, Major Lance, Lou Rawls,The Lincoln Center Jazz Band, Clyde Stubblefield, MCA recording artist Blair, Freddie Fender, The Legendary Drifters, Sound of Supremes and many other nationally renowned artist.
The product of David and Matthew Nelson’s (The Dorothy Heralds, Josh Harty, Lis Harvey) 20 year bond of brotherhood, The Soul Inspirations’ mix early, bare-knuckled Soul with Steely Dan-like arrangements and the straight up, crowd pleasing interplay and dynamics of a well-honed R&B band.”
