Press Release Sally Jones & The Heart Healers.
Northern Soul inspired new vinyl single fills the dancefloor!
During Lockdown 2020 Bristol singer songwriter Sally Larkin and London musician Jono Heale reconnected online and discovered their joint passion for Northern Soul music and dancing. Jono challenged Sally to compose some songs as a celebration of this genre but to also recreate their love for the 60’s Soul sound. They called the project Sally Jones & The Heart Healers and three years later this resulted in a self-funded vinyl record release under the same name.
Jono explains: ‘It became a journey of discovery in many ways from concept and composition to a lot of work going into the recording and production, even down to using analogue mixing techniques and effects to get the right results.’ He goes on to say: ‘Sally’s written these absolutely fantastic songs but it’s also about getting that authentic sound, which we both love, and hoping it could stand up against other classic Northern Soul tracks.’
The A side, ‘Soon As I Saw You’ is a Northern Soul anthemic dancing standard and the B side ‘He’s The One’ is a Supremes inspired tale of a young woman finding a true gentleman. The tracks were recently mastered at Abbey Road, London and pressed in the traditional way at The Vinyl Factory in Middlesex.
The first pressings are a numbered limited edition of 100 vinyl singles. These are already getting overwhelming feedback and praise from well-respected Northern Soul DJs and club goers around the country. The official release date is set for November, but Sally and Jono have already been busy attending Northern Soul clubs nation-wide and well-respected vinyl DJs have already given it a spin filling the dancefloor.
The single had its first public airings in early October at the Canary Club Norwich, The Sidney Barnes Weekender in Coventry and at various events in Manchester, Wigan and Bolton where it reportedly ‘went down a storm!’. On Saturday October 7th, Sally and Jono witnessed their song filling the dancefloor at their regular monthly haunt at the popular Bristol Northern Soul Club. Sally said: ‘It was quite emotional to see classic Soul fans dancing to your track which was the result of a 3-year journey’.
Sally and Jono hope that this initial release will be the first of more to come and are grateful to all the musicians they’ve involved along the way together with the support and encouragement from those in the vibrant Northern Soul scene.
