Biography

United Kingdom (2006 – present)

Spanky Wilson & The Quantic Soul Orchestra (aka The Quantic Soul Orchestra & Spanky Wilson), is a collaboration which has yielded two albums so far: “I’m Thankful” (2 Oct 2006, Tru Thoughts) & “Live In Paris” (Apr ‘08, Tru Thoughts) - both reuniting a 60s , with a hard-hitting UK organic funk sound & showing she still lays down a funky lyric.

Previous QSO Work: “Putting something back” is how Will Holland (founder of Quantic) described the reason for starting The Quantic Soul Orchestra. Having released two succesful albums on Tru Thoughts under his Quantic guise - The 5th Exotic and Apricot Morning (which fused jazzy and breakbeat sounds), he felt his next musical adventure would be to focus on the album you have in your hands. The Quantic Soul Orchestra is a live project, strictly no samples allowed. Influenced by Mr Holland’s love of the dusty funk 45’s, he wanted to record and produce an album with creative and like minded musicians.

With pop acts in the 2000s now using hip-hop beats (beats which are heavily influenced by funk records from the 70s) it was important for the QSO to make the album rough, raw and real - it’s definately not Acid Jazz but has a deeper funk sound that shows that this music is well and truly alive in the new millenium. This is an album influenced by the many flamboyant (but often poor) musicians in the 70s who loved music for music’s sake, who wanted to dance and make people dance.
