Soothsayers’ music contains deep, hypnotic grooves, punctuated by emotive horn lines and sublime vocal harmonies featuring the spell binding voice of Julia Biel plus Idris Rahman and Robin Hopcraft. Lyrically conscious, Soothsayers create a deep and spiritual musical experience, and have built up a loyal fan base through their consistently high quality live performances around the world and their expanding catalogue of vinyl and cd releases on their own Red Earth label. Comparisons to the work of the Wailers and Fela Kuti go some way to describing the Soothsayers’ sound but originality is the key to the continuing success and longevity of the group.

"Thrilling harmonies…seriously infectious dance floor grooves…goose bump inducing vocals."

The Guardian

In 2013 Soothsayers completed a scintillating collaborative album with veteran Jamaica vocalist Cornel Campbell released on Strut Records. 'Nothing Can Stop Us' was another critically acclaimed work described as “motivational, meaningful and incredibly consistent” and The Times calling it “unlikely match on paper but Nothing Can Stop Us is gorgeous”.

From performances at top UK festivals and venues such as Glastonbury Festival, Rototom – Spain, North Sea Jazz Festival, Rotterdam, and recently the first Dhaka World Music Festival, Soothsayers are spreading their message to an ever-expanding audience.
