Riosoul was an idea born of dissatisfaction with the current Music Scene where Artist are packaged to look and sound alike...And where Music played by Real Musicians has been replaced with Manufactured beats, loops, and samples. Riosoul symbolizes a RETURN to REAL MUSIC, and to a time when SOUL & FUNK music came from BANDS that play Instruments, and put on incredible LIVE SHOWS. These BANDS were Creative Forces Responsible for some of the Greatest Music of all time!!! To see Riosoul LIVE is to experience what has been Missing in Music for a Long time! Riosoul's Music has been described as Sophisticated Funk! It's reminiscent of some of the Soul & Funk of the 70's and 80's - while still sounding Fresh and Original. Riosoul's Music has been inspired by many of the Groups of the 70's and 80's including: Sly & The Family Stone, Parliament Funkadelic, Led Zeppelin, Slave, Toto, New Birth, Cameo, Rufus, Larry Graham/Graham Central Station, Isaac Hayes, Average White Band, Stevie Wonder, and Prince Riosoul's debut album 'Rhythms of the Soul' was an introduction of what was to come, and earned Riosoul fans across the Globe! Riosoul's sophomore Album - 'The Cure' is a bold statement that is sure to win over the strongest Critics... 'The Cure' is the type of Album you can play from front to back and just groove - (no fillers on this one) - but plenty to Fill You Up!!!
