That’s the word I would use, if I had to describe in just one word the album "Healing with the Feeling" by Soul Tellers.
"Healing with the Feeling" is a shaken cocktail with Tons of Soul , Funky drops and a pinch of Pop and Rock and Roll fragances with the classic touch of the legendary producer of Hi records: Willie Mitchell.
Miguel A. Julian aka Mr. Soul Teller is the first and only Spanish Artist to record with Willie Mitchell in Memphis back in 2008. Mitchell said about Miguel “…I really like him, he’s got a unique Soulful sound but with the old spirit, this album is full of hits…”.
Soul Tellers is also a multicultural super soul band founded by its leader the singer/songwriter Miguel Angel Julian, who also lead the well known funk-soul band in Spain The Cool Jerks in the the 90’s.
In 2008 Miguel Angel Julian, ,went off to Memphis to record their long awaited Soul Album.
He was locked away for four weeks in Royal Studios working with Willie Mitchell and his chosen musicians, who have worked with legends like Aretha Franklin, Eddie Floyd, Al Green, Patty Labelle and Otis Redding!.
Leroy "Flick" Hodges (Bass), Steve Potts (Drums), Lannie McMillan Jr. (TenorSax), Bruce Lister (Guitars) Cesar Guerrero (Trombone), Raul Miguel (Trumpet), Jim Soul (Bariton Sax) Daunielle "Pie" Hill (Backing Vocals), Jackie Johnson (Backing Vocals) Darrell, Sarah Quist (backing vocals and Guest artist on the track " Jamie"), Bonner (Backing Vocals).
Miguel worked hard to keep the machine running smoothly, together with celebrated
producer Willie Mitchell and his son "Boo" Mitchell , The mix was AMAZING...a real CONNECTION WAS MADE!!
Sadly Willie Mitchell passed away in January 2010 and the world and the city of Memphis lost a LEGEND.
"Healing with the feeling" will become a collector's item that will be highly treasured among Soul and R&B fans.
With these songs Soul Tellers have one aim and that is simply to create an explosive moment of unforgettable
music and audience participation. You will end up humming the melodies with a smile on your... Soul!!.
