Blue Soul has been a collaborative effort between Marcelle Johnson and Bryan Brundige, featuring some of the best gospel singers and performers in Albany. It is a cross pollination of genres and scenes, putting together Soul/R&B/Funk with church musicians, and sprinkling in the blues, all while focusing on making their audience shake everything they’ve got. Over the last few months, the band has been playing a monthly Soul Night in Albany, NY.
