Soul Scratch is a hard hitting groove machine, built in LA's San Fernando Valley, on a mission to save the world from mediocrity. In short, this is not your mother's soul band.

Johnny Chou, Joel Givertz, Adam Greenberg, Matt Reale, Dale Spollett and a host of musicians combine their love of The JB's, Booker T & the MG's, Curtis Mayfield, and all 1960-70's soul. Utilizing rock solid rythme, soaring horn lines, and silky vocals to creating a uniquely Southern California sound that has become their hallmark.

Soul Scratch is rapidly branching out of their LA base on a quest to bring good times, quality get down, and their own special brand of soul to every corner of the country.From the first few notes, this record grabs you.  It’s raw soul and funk music crafted to perfection.  Wailing vocals, soaring horns, and a super tight rhythm section. With a dirty production style, Soul Scratch serves up something that’s familiar, fresh, and never more relevant. – Colemine Records

“San Fernando Valley’s Soul Scratch are a smoking hot soul band with superlative musicianship and one hell of a lead singer in Dale Spollett. Spollett possesses one of those force of nature soul voices that can’t be taught; one has to be born with it. Like Paul Janeway from St. Paul and the Broken Bones and Mike Farris, Spollett is a blue-eyed soul singer that can tear the house down in live performance. Even more impressive is how his voice bristles with energy and conviction on studio recordings. The band itself equals the vocal excellence of Spollett, with its right-on-the-money crackling grooves in every song. Soul Scratch is one of those groups that you know you love within a few seconds of hearing one of their songs.” – Pop Matters

“Los Angeles band Soul Scratch truly do live up to their name. The six-piece band lays down thick funky grooves and the kind of retro soul sounds being done by East Coast labels like Daptone. Vocalist Dale Spollett is a powerhouse, bringing to mind peers like St. Paul and the Broken Bones’ Paul Janeway and legends like Syl Johnson. The musicians in the band are no slouches either, and they’ll often rip into down and dirty instrumentals strictly meant to get you dancing.” – Glide Magazine
