Josh Hoyer and Soul Colossal premiere soulful live track via Elmore Magazine
After recording its live, direct-to-disc LP at Nashville’s famed Welcome to 1979 Studios, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal have given the first taste of its efforts.
The Lincoln soul/funk mainstay premiered “Blood and Bone” yesterday via Elmore Magazine. Soul Colossal’s horn section darts around Hoyer’s soft keyboard touch and from-the-pulpit vocal delivery before flourishing into a huge burst at the track’s conclusion.
“Blood and Bone” will appear on side one of Cooked Raw, the band’s third album, which drops November 6 on Silver Street Records. It was recorded live in one take in June, and captures the essence of the band’s live performance.

Lincoln’s jam band scene continues to thrive, and one of its longest running bands is set to release new music by the end of the year.
Jam trio Commander Kilroy recently released the title track from its forthcoming EP Howl At The Moon. It’s groovy, rock-influenced jam in which guitarist Dylan Fink’s shifting chords add an anxious feel to the seasonally themed track.
Commander Kilroy plans to release Howl At The Moon December 12 at Bob’s Tavern. It will mark the band’s first release since debut album We All Wear Masks dropped two years ago.
Hear “Howl At The Moon” below.
