Hailing from South London, All The People are an electro soul 3 piece comprising of brothers Ashley & Simon Arnold and singer Curtis Dennie. Simon & Ash cut their teeth in punk bands before graduating to become drum & bass producers & artists The Burbs on the highly lauded Hospital Records and sometime Dj’s on Radio 1/1xtra drum & bass show. All The People’s sound has elements of that same blistering euphoria and ranges from raw and compelling to understated and soulful. Curtis’s intuitive yet emotive vocal tone gives the sensitive song writing the delivery it deserves.
The band pride themselves on having a recorded sound and live show that reflects their creative & experimental approach to song structures and soundscapes. Musically they are already being favourably compared to artists ranging from SBTRKT, Sampha, Hot Chip, Little Dragon, Blood Orange & Caribou to classic trip hop/soul acts such as Bonobo and Massive Attack. Their unique sound reflects a plethora of influences from RnB and 90’s soul to jazz & alternative electronic music.
The band are set to release their debut album ‘R Together’ due for release 12th May 2017. ‘R Together’ took the best part of a year to complete and there’s a strong sense of place on the record. The inspiration for their album artwork and imagery harks back to the south coast of Winchester where the two brothers spent whole summers in cara van parks on family holidays.
Taking inspiration from artists ranging from Little Dragon, SB TRKT, Blood Orange & Caribou to classic trip hop/soul acts such as Bonobo and Massive Attack, their unique sound reflects diverse influences from RnB and 90s soul to jazz & early Detroit techno.
Their last three single releases from the album Beach Club&Operator & The Hills have been supported at radio by the likes of Pete Tong, Tom Ravenscroft, Gilles Peterson, Mistajam, Phil Taggart, Goldirocks, Huey Morgan , BBC Introducing & Reprezent.
