SOULDACITY a Jazz-Soul-Funk Fusion Quartet…creating a sound that tingles the musical senses of anyone who loves music! Darrin Lamont Byrd (vocals) and Boris Netsvetaev (keyboards) met at König der Löwen in 2012 and started doing music events together. Shortly after Boris introduced Darrin to Kai Bussenius (drums) and Phil Steen (bass) and a collaboration was born. As a Trio they are known as Hammer Klavier Trio.
SOUL-AUDACITY combined to mean the boldness of soul, is where the name comes from. Since then it has evolved into Soul-Da-City (Soul of the City). From the start we were reinventing old classics such as my Funny Valentine, Aint No Sunshine when She’s Gone, and Nature Boy to name a few. Our musical tastes vary far and wide, from Miles Davis to Chic Corea, Al Jarreau and Bill Withers. With that we were able to find and create our own sound. Music is our life!

Our debut album was released on November 30th, 2018 at Hamburg’s JAZZCLUB BIRDLAND.
