In 2015, in the budding music-mecca of Asheville, NC, a man with a trumpet, an acoustic guitar and a mission metamorphosed into the synergistic indie/soul band, Hustle Souls. With 3 years of relentless touring under their belt, sold out headlining shows, major festival appearances and opening slots for many prominent national acts, the band’s infectious, feel-good, modern meets vintage sound has earned them a reputation as one of the region’s most promising independent acts.
Lead singer and keyboardist, Billy Litz’s rootsy influences and vulnerable compositions are embroidered, garnished, and decked out by a powerhouse soul band. The rhythm section, Tommy Moore and Sean McCann aggressively usher in a tight jazz and R&B influence, while guitarist, Chris Everett, brings the group to the next level with his rock-ribbed feel.
After releasing a live video series in 2017, the band was approached by gold and platinum mixer and producer Eric "Mixerman" Sarafin (Ben Harper, the Broadcast, Barenaked Ladies, Pharcyde) about making a record. In February 2018 Hustle Souls’ released their debut full-length album “Color” to a sold out crowd and are currently touring from Atlanta to Boston in support of the 10 song LP.
