The Soul Seekers
Ten years ago eight well-connected industry guys came together to support group member Nisan Stewart’s father at a concert his church was hosting. Although they weren’t considered a group, after that night it all changed.
Who knew that one performance would turn into ten years where this group would become the Soul Seekers—An award winning-quartet with a huge following consisting of some of the most sought after musicians, producers, singers and songwriters in the game.
Individually, world-class musicians and singers Gerald Haddon, Teddy Campbell, Warryn Campbell, Nisan Stewart, John "Jubu" Smith, Charlie Bereal, Craig Brockman and Eric Seats have racked up Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, and have been nominated for Stellar and Dove Awards, winning a Stellar Award for “Quartet of the Year” for their freshman project The Soul Seekers.
After laying low for a few years the group was ushered back into the music industry with “It’s all God,” featuring the incomparable Pastor Marvin Winans, on their10-track live recording Soul Seekers Il, released November16, 2010. From the toe-tapping Come On Jesus to Trust Me, and Take Your Burdens to name a few, the soul-stirring project doesn’t miss a beat.
With this project true Soul Seeker supporters will definitely notice the growth and a few other welcoming additives.
In a recent interview with Da Gospel Truth Warryn Campbell explains the difference in the current and former projects, “There are different twists and turns here and there. We definitely have a bigger sound now… this time we have a horn section, plus steel guitar players and percussion.”
According to Mona Austin of Gospel Slice—The Soul Seekers offer a fresh perspective on the gospel quartet sound. They mold the customary toe-tapping 2/4 count that defines most traditional quartet songs into intricate rhythms, which meshed with their organic gospel quartet vocals perfectly.
As frontrunners in gospel music the Soul Seekers (Teddy Campbell, Warryn Campbell, Nisan Stewart, John "Jubu" Smith, Gerald Haddon, Charlie Bereal, Craig Brockman and Eric Seats) consists of incredible talent working with an array of superstar artists from Beyonce‘ and Missy Elliott to Nelly, 50 Cent, Diddy, Jennifer Hudson, Whitney Houston, Bette Midler and Britney Spears, to hit making shows as The Tonight Show, Diddy’s “Making His Band” and “American Idol” to name a few.
