SoulFusionSeven
SoulFusionSeven are a collective of eight musicians founded by John Saltwell and Paul Baker to create a live act due to demand following the success of the song Summer Breeze written with singer Cheryl Aldridge. The song climbed to number 1 in the Official UK Soul Chart in the summer of 2017 with help from the other band members, Gary Richardson, Mark Whaymand, Vicky Kaylor, Simon Ringe, Jude Linton and featuring the vocals of Amelia Melody.
It all began in late 2014 when after many years two old friends reunited. John Saltwell who has been a professional bass player/songwriter most of his adult life playing with such artists as Barry White, Carlos Santana, Paul Weller, Simply Red and many more. Soulfusionseven manager and promoter Paul Baker decided to collaborate on a song that Paul had asked John to write for him with some lyrics he provided, after a few weeks and a few tweaks Steppin’ up my love was born, using musicians John has worked with and some fresh new talent; Dave Goodridge provided a great vocal and with the help of Paul’s contacts through DJ’ing the song climbed to no.1 in the Amazon NU Soul chart and remained there for 8 weeks. This gave the boys the impetus to write more tunes and currently have a collection of great songs with more than a whiff of their old school 1970’s early 80’s roots but adding a new school vibe for today’s market. The next single is a tribute to the late great Luther Vandross simply entitled “Luther” it created the perfect mood for what we were looking for as a follow up single and all the musicians who worked on them have made them what they are. In early 2017 Steppin up my love was remixed by a young Japanese Producer called Yuki Tashahaki under the pseudonym T Groove and climbed to number 1 in Japan number, number 1 in various other charts and number 6 in the official UK Soul chart.
We went to number 1 in the summer of 2017 in the Official UK Soul Chart with our next release Summer Breeze released on DSG records and have a new release due out on the 22nd November called “Funk it up” and an album imminent look out for “Acquittal of the Ego” by SoulFusionSevenRob James
