Biography

Soulsavers (also known as The Soulsavers Soundsystem) are an English production and remix team comprised of Rich Machin and Ian Glover. The Soulsavers’ downtempo electronica sound incorporates influences of rock, gospel, soul, and country. To date, the duo has released three albums: Tough Guys Don’t Dance in 2003, It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land (with Mark Lanegan and others) in 2007, and Broken in 2009.

Their debut album Tough Guys Don’t Dance had Spain lead singer Josh Haden singing vocals on the songs “Love,” “Down So Low” and “Precious Time.” Haden’s own song “Spiritual” would later be covered by Mark Lanegan and Soulsavers on the duo’s next album It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land. This album also features guests Jimi Goodwin of Doves, Will Oldham (a.k.a. Bonnie “Prince” Billy), P.W. Long and Richard Warren. The album spawned two singles: “Revival” and “Kingdoms of Rain.” “Kingdoms of Rain” was initially released on Lanegan’s second solo album, Whiskey For The Holy Ghost, in 1994. The album also features cover versions of Neil Young’s “Through My Sails,” and The Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations.” An instrumental titled “End Title Theme” is also included as a hidden track after “No Expectations” ends.

Soulsavers’ third album, Broken, was released on August 17, 2009. Mark Lanegan once again featured as the main vocalist.

    Well, Dave Gahan's voice is great here... but still the gloom of Lanegan's cigarette-shaped voice fits into this type of music as perfectly as none would.

    Why don't you people stop comparing Soulsavers with Lanegan and with Gahan and just enjoy the music? Both Soulsavers with Gahan and with Lanegan are awesome. I must add,that I am hardcore Depeche Mode devotee, but for me both versions of Soulsavers are just great.
