The Suffers exploded onto the scene in 2015 with their dazzling EP Make Some Room, and with the release of Everything Here, they are bound to further endear die-hard fans and make believers of new ones. There is a contagious and combustible energy every time the eight-piece wonder-band steps on the scene. NPR's Bob Boilen attributes the band's allure to their "Soul, straight from horn to heart." This band has 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. They have played sold out shows in Japan and Latin America, turned out audiences at the Newport Folk Festival and Afropunk Festival and made believers of just about anyone who has experienced their live shows.
