Known in Western North Carolina as a top Soul band, the Secret B-Sides produce “solid gold baby making music.”
With the release of albums like Welcome to Soul City, Easy Magic, Flowers & Chocolate, and Live on the Mothership (not to mention lost EPisodes) the Secret B-Sides consistently create plush musical escapes.
B-Sides albums also feature sincerely sexy slow-jams, thoughtful brass and woodwind arrangements, as well as articulated rap verses from some of the region’s best eMCees, including Grammy Award winning Agent 23 (AKA Secret Agent 23 Skidoo), Preach Jacobs, Chach (AKA Chachillie), Red!nk, and Grammy featured artist Juan Holladay (AKA Franky Flowers).
Whether performing live as a quartet, or accompanied by any number of collaborators, this band is on the planet to help Earthly beings get together and have funky good times. And, the Secret B-Sides are all about flying saucers, dinosaurs, and love.
Since conception, the B-Sides have opened in direct support for Lee Fields & the Expressions, Soulive, +he Foreign Exchange, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Dwele, 9th Wonder, and many more, including a very special performance as the backing band for Gift of Gab, from Blackalicious.
Music by the Secret B-Sides, as well as band members' side projects, can be found at Super Solar Records.
