Featuring the much-loved legend, ex-Red Wiggle, Murray Cook, and led by long-Legged power-house, Lizzie Mack, The Soul Movers musical tour-de-force across a hip and funky retro musical spectrum, recreates the best sounds from the 1960s and 70s, making them one of the most exciting new live and festival acts on the touring circuit today.
Backed by a band oozing with musical talent, The Soul Movers have recorded in both the US and Australia to create four critically-acclaimed albums which are regularly presented with humour and passion on many of Australia’s biggest stages and most-loved festivals.
Evolving with over a decade of experience and collaboration, the outfit enjoys a stable union and magical combination with the resulting creation of three albums for ABC Music / UMA: ‘Testify!’, ‘Bona Fide’, and last year’s release – ‘Evolution’.
Since showcasing ‘Testify!’ at SXSW in 2017, then ambitiously recording ‘Bona Fide’ at seven iconic studios across the United States (including Sun and Royal Studios in Memphis and Fame and Muscle Shoals Sound in Alabama) the band’s sound has only grown from strength to strength.
This is music that is all about the soul – its passion, emotional nuance, heartbreak, celebration, hurt and love. ‘Bona Fide’ is the sound of a talented, experienced bunch of soul-music lovers making a record where the essence of this passion and feeling is coursing through their veins.
The Soul Movers have commenced recording their fourth album in seven years – due out in March 2023 – with many new musical collaborations and exciting opportunities, currently in the pipeline.
The band’s current line-up of incredible talent, who count themselves among the best in Australia, includes drummer Luke Herbert with Matthew Crawford on bass and Marko Simec on keys (Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers, Don Walker etc). Together they deliver a unified and electrifying live performance that impresses audiences and critics alike, wherever they play.
This is music that is all about the soul – its passion, emotional nuance, heartbreak, celebration, hurt and love. ‘Bona Fide’ is the sound of a talented, experienced bunch of soul-music lovers making a record where the essence of this passion and feeling is coursing through their veins. You can’t really ask for anything more.

“Murray Cook and Lizzie Mack have forged an alliance so powerful, so fearsomely funky, that The Soul Movers have become one of the most exciting live bands in the land…”
Glenn A. Baker AM, Journalist/ARIA Hall of Fame Advisory Committee
“The Soul Movers are aptly named for their body-driven music that will have any seated crown writhing in their seats. The group combines electrifying guitar riffs with 60s soul-groove and a sprinkling of pop to form a night out that audiences will never forget.
TSM’s high energy bursts through to deliver a new album which is a tasty collection of surprise and delight”.
Tait McGregor, The AU Review
