Steeped in classic soul standards and outfitted with modern flair, The Burroughs are a nine piece band with a powerhouse sound that has been electrifying audiences across Colorado and beyond. Since 2013, the band has lit up stages with their trademark brand of “Sweaty Soul Music,” quickly earning their rightful place as one of the best live bands in the region.
The Burroughs’ upcoming full-length studio album, Got To Feel, harnesses the energy of their live shows and combines it with thoughtful songwriting and superb musicianship to culminate in a new sonic frontier for the band. Produced and engineered by Colin Bricker of Mighty Fine Productions in Denver, CO, the album is due for worldwide release on January 9, 2018. “In many ways, this is a coming of age album for the band,” says Johnny Burroughs, lead vocalist and bandleader. “The identity of the band has finally come into focus as we have discovered who we are and locked in our sound.”
Got To Feel thematically explores the ups and downs of navigating life and relationships amidst uncertainty, and finding clarity in a world full of noise. “In life we cannot always control the circumstances in which we live, or the emotions that we feel,” explains Burroughs, “but we can choose who we are when faced with those situations. We can feel anger and frustration, but choose to not be defined by them.”
No newcomer to uplifting spirits, Johnny Burroughs works as a licensed minister and music pastor. His church upbringing serves him well on stage, where the red-headed frontman sings, dances, and screams audiences into a revival-like frenzy. His dynamite backing band includes a sizzling 4 piece horn section and tight 4 piece rhythm section that are as versatile as they are fun to watch. The band’s live performances are capped by choreographed dancing, soaring solos, and funky grooves, with the goal of moving the audience to a joyful celebration by each show’s closing tune.
