Let yourself be motivated! CFSW 2019 after party with The Soul Motivators

Get ready to shake your booty as we round out the 2019 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word with a boppin' show by The Soul Motivators! Enjoy the show while having all of those last opportunity chats and connections before we hit the road till next year.

The Soul Motivators are here to restore your faith in funk. This nine-piece Toronto powerhouse brings an explosive live energy to every show they play. Reviving a classic sound, they blend 1970’s funk and soul, psychedelic jams and hip-hop breaks to great effect- forging an original path through the modern music scene. A bursting horn section, towering vocals and timeless grooves motivate you straight to the dance floor.

TSM have been making waves since their eponymous EP release in 2013. They’ve shared stages with greats like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Lee Fields, Bernie Worrell and A Tribe Called Red. They have electrified crowds at TD Jazz Festival, Yonge-Dundas Square, The PanAm Games, NXNE and TEDx. Their debut album, Free to Believe, was released on Do Right! Music in May 2015, to national and international acclaim. In 2017 they introduced two vinyl releases on Detroit’s Funk Night Records, followed up with a string of sold out Canadian tour dates.

The Soul Motivators are now set to release their sophomore album in Summer 2018 on Do Right! Music, featuring the power-house vocal stylings of new leading lady Shahi Teruko. Teruko is a force of nature - bringing relentless fire to recordings and live shows while elevating the band to new heights. Her performances are electric; shaking up audiences and always leaving them wanting more. This new album builds on a strong tradition of powerful, visceral music that steals your heart and makes you move; but it’s also a big step forward for the band - welcoming new fans as they enter a new phase of their evolution.

In an era when music is often a backdrop to passing trends, TSM stay true to their musical roots - displaying a powerful identity that is unique and relevant. They are fresh, exuberant and full of soul - and it’s only up from here.

Let yourself be motivated!
