Ruby Velle and The Soulphonics
“It’s About Time,” the full-length debut album from Atlanta’s Ruby
Velle & The Soulphonics, has quickly made waves around the globe since
its recent September 2012 release. Billboard has recently ranked the
album in the top 30 on the Heatseeker charts, a chart devoted to
emerging artists. In the US, the lead off single “My Dear” was
featured as iTunes’ “single of the week”, sparking a digital soul-grab
of 200,000 single downloads, and 1200 full album download sales,
landing the album at #4 on the iTunes R&B charts. The same week, Jim
Farber of The New York Daily News named the album in his much
sought-after top ten. In addition, Google Play has offered“My Dear” as
a free track for the month of October for all smartphone users.

In Christmas week December 2012, the single “Heartlite” was featured
as the Starbucks “Pick of the Week” which garnered over 250,000
downloads and presence in all Starbucks location wi-fi pages
nationwide.

Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics roots are embedded in the rich sound and
history of Georgia soul, beginning with the early 50’s and 60’s R&B
that became so well known around the world. Having performed countless
gigs since 2005, and with a slew of 45rpm singles already under their
belts, the band has already contributed heavily to the steadily
increasing awareness of genuine rhythm and blues music that exists
today. They pack clubs and festivals with their original brand of
soul, all of which is written and recorded in Atlanta. Ruby Velle &
The Soulphonics are taking it world wide in 2012, with the release of
“It’s About Time.”
