The Suffers

A ten-piece band from Houston, TX who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast Soul
Come on let me cook for you baby. Just relax cuz I’m cleaning too. I love you like I’ve known you forever, I just need you to make some room.
lyrics from Make Some Room

The Suffers are a ten-piece band from Houston, TX who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast Soul, intertwining elements of Classic American Soul with Rock & Roll. Both sonically and visually arresting, the large ensemble packs each position of the rhythm section and horn section with a level of talent and taste that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin's massive voice.

The band's sincerity and emotion are laid bare in their music, which has garnered an audience so broad and varied that they may prove to be the panacea for a jaded and stratified live music scene. The Suffers will be releasing their debut LP Make Some Room in 2015, hitting the road aggressively.
