American singer Lucy Woodward joined the European organ trio Soundsville for a couple recent concerts. Lucy and Soundsville performed together for the first time in Germany in 222 and felt they had a “connection” with their dynamic blend of crossing musical genres. Alberto Marsico (organ) and Lars Kutschke (guitar) have a long, trusted history together. They founded Soundsville in 2006 and recorded 2 albums, drawing from their deep knowledge of the blues, jazz, gospel, funk and psychedelic rock.
LUCY WOODWARD has released several 6 albums and has recorded and toured with artists such as Snarky Puppy, Charlie Hunter, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Pink Martini (singing in Japanese, Croatian & Turkish). Lucy has also been a guest with WDR Big Band and Frankfurt Radio Big Band and has sung on many movie soundtracks. She will be releasing her 7th album this year.
ALBERTO MARSICO started playing the Hammond organ after attending a workshop by the legendary Jack McDuff (who would later record “Jackpot”, a tune Alberto had dedicated to him). He has become one of Europe’s most renowned organ players having toured worldwide with Jimmy Cobb, Jimmy Witherspoon, Kenny Burrell, Larry Taylor and Fabrizio Bosso.
LARS KUTSCHKE has cut his teeth touring more than 40 countries playing guitar with gospel-blues singer Sharrie Williams as well as artists such as the legendary Bettye Lavette, Tad Robinson and German pop-acts Sido and Alphaville.
The newest member of Soundsville is drummer LUCA GUARINO who has worked alongside Marsico with many projects over the last few years.
The Soundsville’s repertoire is based on the love all 4 musicians have for blues, jazz and gospel music consisting of classic songs and standards from artists such as include Nina Simone and Donny Hathaway, including some originals. Concerts will be special evenings you do not want to miss!
