Because of You
Westcoast Soulstars are one of the bands to listen out for in 2011/12 – their blend of modern soul, funk &
disco using real musicians gives us a fresh take on the classic Brit-Soul sound. The combined vocal talents of
Eli Thompson & Janine Johnson (Urban Black Voices) are joined by the well honed musicianship of Jay
McLuskey (Drums), Paul Absalom (Bass), James Dean (Guitar) and Lawrie Bolton (Keys) bringing us their
latest single 'Because of You', which is already proving a hit on dance floors and on air.
The follow up to the floor filling anthem 'Show Me Love' re-inforces the unique style and sound of the band,
which has been developed since 2007, when the band was first brought together by Eli and Adam Fennel.
Finding a gap in the music scene they went about filling it, by bringing together a band, starting out with rearranged
classic covers and which has supported Sister Sledge, Jeffrey Daniels and Chic at Indigo2 in
London. Now they are bringing their own sound to dance floors and radio stations up and down the UK, and
on the airwaves as far apart as the US and Japan.
Thanks to the following people for making this project possible:
Angelo Acanfora, Eli Thompson, Jen Dunbar, Jenny Cardinal and all the DJ's for playing & promoting this great tune!
