Album of the Month: At long last, the supergroup The Mighty Soulmates

Share this article

    The term “supergroup” isn’t appropriately used very often, but it is absolutely the right term for The Mighty Soulmates.  Consisting of legendary musicians André Cymone (artist, singer, songwriter, producer and original bass player with the artist known as Prince), Mic Murphy (singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist and renowned as the co-creator and member of The System and The Jack Sass Band),  St. Paul Peterson (keyboardist in The Time and lead singer in Prince’s group The Family), and Gardner Cole (writer, producer and musician, best known for his work with Madonna), The Mighty Soulmates have a pedigree that screams R&B and funk greatness.

    The term “supergroup” isn’t appropriately used very often, but it is absolutely the right term for The Mighty Soulmates.  Consisting of legendary musicians André Cymone (artist, singer, songwriter, producer and original bass player with the artist known as Prince), Mic Murphy (singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist and renowned as the co-creator and member of The System and The Jack Sass Band),  St. Paul Peterson (keyboardist in The Time and lead singer in Prince’s group The Family), and Gardner Cole (writer, producer and musician, best known for his work with Madonna), The Mighty Soulmates have a pedigree that screams R&B and funk greatness.

    In 1993, the quartet secretly recorded a series of songs that brought in sophisticated funk, New Jack Swing, and even the Minneapolis R&B sounds of the day. But incredibly, those songs remained hidden for more than a quarter century…until now.

    Now freshly pulled from the vaults, Mod Squad Records has issued 14 of these tasty tracks in the brand new album, The Mighty Soulmates. Vol 1.

    Vol. 1 is a mixture of beat ballads and up-tempo danceable tracks reminiscent of the musical roots that each group member brought to the recording session then, which have now been polished, mixed, mastered and modernized to be perfectly enjoyed.

    We think SoulTrackers are going to love this collection, and will wonder how these songs stayed a secret for so long. We’re proud to present The Mighty Soulmates, Vol. 1 as our Album of the Month for December. Check it out below, and welcome this unvaulted gem with us.
