Soultru

Soultru is a soul duo artist based out of the Quad Cities Iowa/Illinois. They're signed to Kansas City label The Record Machine. They sometimes travel with a full band and other times as a duo or solo (Terrance Banks).

They blend soul singing, acoustic guitar and piano to make relatable music for all. Drawing influence from gospel music artists like Fred Hammond and Smokie Norful. While later finding artists such as Gavin Degraw, Anthony Hamilton, John Legend and most recently Allen Stone.

They've have had the pleasure of opening for artists such as Kweku Collins, Magic City Hippies, Michigan Rattlers, Neil Hilborn, Ceschi Ramos, Kaleb Mitchell and shared The Alder Theatre stage with Amythyst Kiah in June 2021.

James Tutson

James Tutson and the Rollback is a modern rhythm and blues/soul band from Iowa City, Iowa. The group was formed in 2016 when singer-songwriter James Tutson assembled a 4-piece backing band to rehearse and record his second full-length album, On Hope (2017). After playing a handful of local shows and discovering a tight, crowd-pleasing sound on stage, Tutson christened his new ensemble “the Rollback,” and a band was born.

Tutson gradually shed his folk-rock songwriter beginnings and returned to his roots—soul and gospel—as he put his heartfelt lyrics to music that critics in 2018 described as “roughed-up soul.” In late 2018, JTRB began writing a new album, Make You Free (forthcoming in Fall 2019), which they recorded at Uno Mas Studios in Nashville in 2019. Where On Hope was a collection of Tutson’s compositions accompanied by “the Rollback,” Make You Free represents the band’s collaborative songwriting effort and showcases a more mature, polished r&b and gospel sound. Indeed, Tutson’s lyrics probe the hopes and anxieties of fatherhood, the pursuit of goodness, and the freeing power of love. As Tutson and the Rollback sing in the album’s opening track, “Love should make you free.”

The band—comprised of a lawyer, a chemist, a software consultant, a German professor, and a youth organizer—is playing shows in the Midwest this summer and fall in support of the new album.
