The Suffers

“They’re the sort of neo-retro group you never knew music was so badly missing.” – Spin Magazine

Following their compelling late night TV debut on Letterman in 2015, the electrifying eight piece wonder-band The Suffers instantly hit home with their audiences. Exploding onto the scene with their dazzling EP Make Some Room and their critically heralded self-titled debut in 2016, the 2018 release Everything Here proves to be the band’s most bold statement yet. Hailing from Houston, Texas, The Suffers have got everything you need and there’s no need to look further - a heaping dose of soul, a dash of reggae, a splash of jazz, a pinch of salsa, a hint of rock ‘n’ roll and a dollop of hip hop and funk - and that is just a few ingredients simmering inside their magical Gulf Coast soul. This thrilling ensemble is led by the relentlessly soulful Kam Franklin, the singer-songwriter, activist, writer and motivational speaker whose vocal range, passion and confidence make her shine as an undeniable force. Adam Castaneda bass, Kevin Bernier guitar, Jon Durbin trumpet, Michael Razo trombone, Jose Luna percussion, Patrick Kelly keyboards, and Nick Zamora drums.
