Led by charismatic frontwoman and primary songwriter Lizzie Mack, The Soul Movers are a supergroup of sorts, featuring two ARIA Hall of Fame inductees, guitarist Murray Cook (The Wiggles) and keyboardist Pip Hoyle (Radio Birdman).
Originally formed by Lizzie in conjunction with Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), the group has evolved over the years, with the line-up including original bass player Andy Newman and drummer Darren Ryan, coming together to record Testify!
Keeping it in the family, the album was recorded at the legendary Hot Potato Studios, and features cameos other luminaries including Jeff Fatt (The Wiggles, The Cockroaches) and Amanda Brown (The Go-Betweens).
The band’s sound encapsulates the essence of retro soul, filtered through a contemporary lens, in the vein of iconic contemporary artists such as Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and Amy Winehouse.
Lead single ‘Fool I Am’, is a classic 60’s-inspired pop tune about the lure of love with a reflective bridge and resolution.
“To testify means to show evidence of something you believe in and hold to be true. So here is our experience; how we live, we love, we wonder, we question and we survive. Testify! is indeed our musical proof,” – Lizzie Mack.
