jacksoul is ‘Resurrected’

Published: 2004-05-17
Contemporary Canadian jazz band jacksoul will be releasing a new album May 25th. 'Resurrected' is the title of the new disc, and it couldn't be more appropriate for jacksoul. This will be the group's first release since 2000's 'Restless', which contained the hit 'Can't Stop'.

In addition to dropping the new album, jacksoul will be touring across Canada. The band has 12 dates lined up for the months of May, June and July. The tour will span right from Ottawa, Ontario all the way to Victoria, B.C.

Although jacksoul is considered a band, the real commander of the group is lead singer Haydain Neale. He is the one that most people identify with the band, and for good reason. It is Neale's soulful voice that is the trademark of jacksoul.

Along with his band mates, Neale released jacksoul's first album 'Absolute' on BMG records in 1996. But it wasn't until the release of 'Sleepless' that the band found mainstream success. The single 'Can't Stop' received heavy play on Much Music and radio stations across the entire country, shifting the band from virtual obscurity to national treasure. jacksoul's new album is being distributed by V.i.k. records, and has already spawned the single 'Still Believe In Love ' which has received ample airtime on Much Music's slightly more mature sister station Much More Music.
