Meet the band

Ange - Lead Vocals

Angela has been interested in music for many years, singing her first duet, 'Sweet Angel of Mine' aged 9 in a Christmas Nativity play! She continued singing in a choir whilst at Withington Girls' School in Manchester and participated in a choir tour of Italy, where she was fortunate to sing in St. Mark's Basilica, Venice. Angela has also enjoyed singing in the Liverpool Harmonic Gospel Choir which is directed by Tyndale Thomas MBE. After leaving this choir, Angela sang with her sister in a band she formed with a number of soul musicians. In the summer of 2012, she joined SOULvation and has been singing with this extremely talented group of musicians ever since.

Kev - Bass

Kev has been playing bass over 30 years in a variety of original, cover, function and tribute bands. He was a teenage rock and heavy metal fan who discovered soul and Motown via The Commitments and Blues Brothers films, opening up a new musical world he continues to explore. Making up half of SOULvation's rhythm section along with Warren, they aim to have the audience moving and grooving from the start to the end of every show, with their tight and funky playing.

Paul - Keyboards and Backing Vocals

Paul made a welcome return to SOULvation at the start of 2019, having taken time out to establish his own home maintenance business. He has been playing piano since age 10 and has been in bands since the age of 17. Having grown up listening to his sisters Motown records, Paul has always enjoyed the unique vibe of soul. He takes particular pride in getting the sounds required to make each song sound as authentic as possible. He is a founder member of the progressive rock band Strangefish and has composed and performed material on all 3 of their albums. Paul has worked in music for wellbeing at blueSCI Old Trafford where people who are struggling emotionally can use music and composition as away of expressing themselves. He has hosted celebration performances of this work at RNCM Manchester on several occasions. He worked at Seed Studios helping people to compose and record original work.

Bob - Guitar

Bob started playing blues guitar aged 15 and played guest spots alongside his guitar tutor’s band The Roach Twins in local pubs. He expanded his musical vocabulary in his late teens learning rock, funk and jazz guitar styles and continues to enjoy exploring and playing chord voicings and rhythmic phrases found in soul, funk and jazz. He is also a member of progressive rock band Strangefish and has played alongside Paul (Keyboards and Backing Vocals) for over 25 years.

Warren - Drums

Warren is the newest member of SOULvation and has been performing as a drummer for over 20 years, playing stages both small and large across the country and into Europe, in both original and covers bands. He grew up on a steady diet of The Beatles, Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash before discovering soul music through Otis Redding's incendiary Monterey Festival performance. His aim on stage is to make sure that the groove is flowing and everyone is dancing
