Ann Street Soul started when a group of college friends put out a YouTube video (http://youtu.be/B_y4X-tz2qY). We were musicians finishing up school before we went our separate ways for the summer. We crammed into a living room and recorded a fun tune to throw online. To our surprise, the video exploded, and within a 5 day period picked up safely over 100,000+ views.

Because of all the incredible viral support, we're releasing new content.

At the request of many curious minds, we’re producing an EP of our own! This is why we need your help. Our music will be more soul-lifting… heart-racing… foot-pounding… and ear-changing music for all of our enchanted listeners.

The EP will consist of 5 original tunes, which will all be recorded at a top-of-the-line studio and with plenty of vintage love. There will be soulful lyrics, funky guitar lines, blasted horns, and a groovin rhythm section to bring a bit of feel-good in your day. The EP will be finished winter 2012/2013.

Donations to our project will be greatly appreciated as well as give you some very cool rewards ranging from copies of the EP, signed swag from the band, and even picking our next YouTube release for us to arrange. (Check out the sidebar for more details)

After the release of this EP, we will have the support to bring Ann Street Soul to you LIVE.

Thanks for your continued love and support. We hope you enjoy our
