Joslyn & The Sweet Compression (including Steve Holloman - keyboards, Smith Donaldson - bass, Rashawn Fleming - drums, Trevin Little - saxophone, and Chase Fleming - trombone and trumpet) combine to deliver a hook-filled mix of funk and soul on their self-titled debut album, released in 2019. A headlining favorite at regional clubs and music festivals, they are poised to engage fans across the country with widespread touring in 2021.
Calling to mind legends like Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston, Joslyn is her own woman and brings the power. Commanding the stage, her timeless voice glides through silky soul and funk grit, on a set of tasty and thoughtful original music. The band is on a classic trip filtered through a vivacious, modern lens: “Real musicians playing real songs, with real instruments- that’s our vibe.”
