Five musicians who met in Maine’s musical melting pot, Downeast Soul Coalition has been serving up a tasty and original blend of soul, funk, blues, and R&B since 2012. Each member of the Coalition brings a wealth of musical talents and influences to the band’s high energy performances.
DSC’s tight sound is anchored by funky bassist frontman Scott Morrison and driven by the relentless grooves of drummer Nancy Durham. It features the scorching sounds of guitarist Nelson Nadeau, punchy horn lines and soulful saxophone solos by Kate Campbell Strauss, and the jump blues rhythms and beastly Hammond solos of Mike Vaughan. DSC has produced and released two albums, which have received airplay on WMPG, WBLM, and WHUS. The band continues to attract a loyal following and moves audiences at clubs, festivals, and parties throughout Maine.
