NYC Power Trio London Souls Return to Parrot

The NYC-based power trio the London Souls will appear at The Green Parrot with shows at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9; and 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 10.

The London Souls represent a rock tradition: rock’s most elemental line-up, the power-rock trio, built on roaring chords and flashy solos on guitar, insistent drumming and straight-ahead vocals. Consisting of Tash Neal on guitar and lead vocals, Kiyoshi Matsuyama on bass and vocals, and Chris St. Hilaire on drums and vocals, The London Soul wear their influences on their sleeve and are inspired by classic trios such as Cream, Jimi Hendrix Experience and Blue Cheer.

Spotlighted by MTV, Rolling Stone, Relix and The Wall Street Journal, among others, the band’s celebrated sound had been a best-kept secret among New York City concertgoers since its formation in 2008. With a fervent and dynamic fan base thanks to their consistently impassioned, explosive live performances, The London Souls’ unique reinterpretation of hard-hitting rock ‘n roll recalls elements of the past with a boundless energy that will hypnotize and amaze providing the perfect combination of hit singles, musicianship and live energy.

Their song She’s So Mad has received airplay on FOX TV’s show “Fearless Music”, and their song I Think I Like It was used in a commercial advertising NBA star Derrick Rose’s line of shoes by adidas.
