Drizabone Soul Family


The original Drizabone, were formed in the early 1990’s by Billy Freeman & who had an instant with ‘Real Love’, a timeless soulful dance groove, which endures on dance floors to this day…

Drizabone-ThumbThey followed up with a remix of ‘I Love Your Smile’ by US artist Shanice, which reached No.2 in the UK. Along with producing their own prestigious album ‘Conspiracy’, they also remixed the likes of Diana Ross, Mary J Blige, Lulu & Barry White.
Reformed as The Drizabone Soul Family, a new name to represent the spirit of the new band, Billy is now working with a group of hugely talented & very close friends, musicians & family from his hometown of Northampton. Most of whom have known each other all their lives, making it more a family than a band.

Drizabone-ThumbTheir 2010 album ‘All The Way’ was playlisted by the likes of Smooth Radio & BBC Radio2 & their busy tour schedule includes their own funky soulful live show & supporting the likes of Eliza Doolittle & Incognito. In 2011, they graced the main stage of Summer Soulstice where their blissful sounds & the north London sunshine, made for one memorable performance.

With some of the finest vocalists in Nataya, Anna Marie-Johnson, Sheniece McMenamen, Denise Gordon, Anneka Johnson & Natalie Valentine & a live band which features some heavyweight musicians, Billy emphasises “we write songs & make records the way they used to be, when songs were melodic & beautiful & still sound great years later. The achievement of this gives all of us a great feeling which lasts a lifetime”. A cliche, it maybe, but Drizabone Soul Family really is all about the music!…

…and we got nothing but Real Love for ’em!
