Add To Cart

Crissi Cochrane plays flute and sings in The Family Soul, a horn-fuelled soul band based in Windsor, Ontario, and fronted by Soul Brother Mike (Crissi’s husband). “On The Shoulders Of… Vol. 1” is the band’s debut album, featuring reinterpreted arrangements of some of the band’s favourite hidden gems in the genres of soul, funk, and blues.

The project began in 2017 as a backing band for the original music of band leader Soul Brother Mike. The group has since honed its unique sound, growing its repertoire to include a carefully curated selection of hidden gems found in the genres of blues, soul, and funk.

The group is comprised of many of Windsor’s top musicians, from Soul Brother Mike (Michou, Walkervilles), to saxophonist Kelly Hoppe (Big Sugar), vocalist Crissi Cochrane (singer-songwriter), and a number of University and theatre trained musicians, including trumpeter Austin DiPietro (Coffee House Combo, Bishop Boys).

The Family Soul recorded a core part of their repertoire for their album "On The Shoulders Of... Vol. 1". This unique album of classic and modern soul music stems from the golden age of soul in the late 60s and early 70s, with newer R&B flavours from Kansas' Reggie B, and the UK's Lewis Taylor.
