That’s right baby, we’re spinnin’ the entire on-fire catalog from New York’s funk standard, Truth & Soul Records. The Orchard has acquired the pioneering label’s 45+ releases and will distribute it digitally and physically worldwide.
Truth & Soul is built on the backs of soul veterans Jeff Silverman and Leon Michels, a duo that collaborated on tracks by high-profile artists such as Aloe Blacc, Adele and Amy Winehouse as Truth & Soul Productions. Silverman & Michels took to Brooklyn to launch Truth & Soul Records with the goal of pushing modern funk music forward. The label brought its dream to fruition with critically acclaimed releases from staples such as Lee Fields, Lady Wray and more.
Jason Pascal, The Orchard’s VP of Catalog Development and certified soul aficionado, cannot wait to share this catalog with the world:
“Anyone who knows me is aware of my funk fandom, and the Truth & Soul Records catalog is a significant part of modern funk history,” he said. “The Orchard will treat the Truth & Soul catalog and brand with the utmost care and respect.”
Yes we will, Jason. Yes we will.
