A rising star in Los Angeles dance music scene, we dub Soul Bandit a breakthrough artist of 2017. Although her Soundcloud account may be slim (her first upload was this past May), she makes up for it in QUALITY. Each track with its own unique character of emotions gives the music project Soul and the lack of boxing her up in one genre makes her a Bandit; a rebel, a fearless producer. If you don’t know Soul Bandit, now you know.
Soul Bandit’s fourth release, ‘A Tribute To Dancing Queen’, pays respects to her influences and roots that stem from her introduction to music through her mother and the first band that captivated her palette, ABBA. Although she steers her tribute away from the groovy, disco original, ‘A Tribute To Dancing Queen’ finds raw emotions via body-trembling basslines and unique blast of SOUL that tugs the heart strings.
“Although I intended this release to be in alignment with my 3 previous releases, the idea behind making this one is a bit more personal. ABBA’s music has been part of my life since I was in the womb, so naturally they’re influences when it comes to me making my own music. Dancing Queen in particular is near and dear to both me and my mother’s hearts, and she is the one who ignited my passion for music the minute I was born. I probably wouldn’t be actively pursuing this career if it weren’t for her gifting me her love of music and encouraging me to take this journey. So this song was really written for her.” – Soul Bandit
