via 2dopeboyz. I thought this was really interesting… The Soulphonics & Ruby Velle are a new funk/soul revivalist group from Atlanta, GA. The group’s lead singer, Ruby, is Indian and is reminiscent of famed soul singers like Gladys Knight & The Pips, Aretha Franklin, and Patti Labelle. She also performs with an 8-piece band… I had to support this one. You can buy the 7″ from FatBeats. You can also check out Ruby’s interview with MTVDesi here.
