The Happy Soul are a four-piece melodic power-pop band from Manchester, UK.
They have recently released their second studio album, ‘Big Wow’ to critical acclaim.
‘Big Wow, the second album from The Happy Soul, is an enjoyable blend of strong harmonies, pop panache and swingin’ highs relived, when necessary, by just the right amount of melancholy dreaminess. Influences include Frank Zappa, Jake Thackray, Mahalia Jackson, Scott Walker, Nilsson and The Beach Boys- all of which the band is able to synthesise into a cohesive and robust sound.’ Adam Lowe, Vada Magazine
The Happy Soul are:
Mark Simpson (Vocals/Guitar), Mick Pauline (Drums/Vocals) Sally Mason (Bass/Keyboards/Vocals) and Jon Donohue (Guitar/Bass/Vocals).
The Happy Soul have managed to synthesise the Doo-Wop and Gospel sound of The Impressions & The Soul Stirrers with the lyrical witticisms of George Brassens and Tom Lehrer and shine it through a pop spectrum that appears both vintage and modern.
The Be Positives are:
Michael Seal – Guitar, Piano, Vocals
Robert Hatton – Bass, Vocals
Callum Darley – Drums, Vocals
Simon Mayne – Lead Guitar, Vocals
Melodic music made in Manchester.
