True Loves

Seattle, WA

Listening to the abundant sounds of the Seattle-based funk and soul group, True Loves, is like walking down a favorite neighborhood street, slapping-five with friends, and smelling the familiar scents of your most cherished locale. The band is its own block party!

One of the biggest sounds on the Seattle music scene began in 2014 as a jam session between three of the city’s best musicians – pocket-perfect drummer David McGraw, bassist Bryant Moore and guitarist Jimmy James – and has since blossomed into a global force that now features percussionist Iván Galvez and four horn players: trombonists Jason Cressey and Greg Kramer, and saxophonists Gordon Brown and Skerik. Elements of blues, funk and jazz come together with synchronized horns, strings and and groove-heavy rhythm section.

The eight-piece group’s live performances have garnered them acclaim and millions of streams on YouTube. They’ve released two albums and played at countless festivals across the country, establishing themselves as a group with an uncanny ability to write songs that were made to soundtrack warm summer nights. We think we might know a good place for them to play!

Embracing the stage with warmth, gusto and impeccable style, True Loves come together to offer a performance steeped in soul: a truly unforgettable live experience!
