The London Souls
The London Souls
The London Souls' unique reinterpretation of classic hard-hitting rock and roll formulae recalls elements of
the past with an ever-present boundless energy, fit to cement their place in the future.
Tash and Chris have been nothing short of a best-kept-secret among New York City concertgoers since the
band's formation in 2008, building a fervent and dynamic fan base leveraged by their ever-substantiated
reputation for consistently well-rehearsed and impassioned, explosive live performances.
The band's celebrated sound and spirit draws significant influence from the driving force of British rock
pioneers Cream and Led Zeppelin, to billowing and bouncing funk and soul, to the layered harmonies and
memorable hooks of The Beatles and The Hollies, to the contemporary psychedelia of My Morning Jacket
among many more.

From the wild deserts of Reno, Nevada,

The Sextones are a family of music renegades known for viciously executed soul compositions and white-knuckle driving funk. With Mark Sexton on guitar accompanied by the commanding rhythm section of Alexander Korostinsky on bass, Daniel Weiss on drums and Ryan Taylor on keys, this band is redefining the sound of modern soul.

Their musical chemistry began forming in grade school, and as young adults their chops defy their age. Eager to hit the road, the band started touring heavily during high school, often lying about their age to play in dingy bars. In 2016 The Sextones are gaining recognition on the major festival circuit and beyond, with appearances at Railroad Earth's Hangtown Halloween Ball and Wanderlust Festival in Tahoe.

"We are always hungry for more and we're more than ready for the next big thing" Mark states, referring to a recent tour opening for Toubab Krewe. In recent months they've also shared the bill with Macy Gray, Charles Bradley, Dumpstaphunk, and their idols are beginning to take notice.

Formally known as Mark Sexton Band, their 2013 release, Young & Naïve, was mixed by none other than legendary drummer Alan Evans of Soulive. "It sounded great even before I got my hands on it", explains Alan Evans, "that's what happens when you get great players playing great songs." The album was recorded in Los Angeles by Emmy Award winning engineer Larold Rebhun whose resume alone is like reading a 'who's who' list in Hollywood.

Tipping their hats to the days of Tower of Power and Stevie Wonder, The Sextones are forging the path for a new generation of funk and soul.

On tour now.
