"Imagine if Etta James started a band with Led Zeppelin and brought some funk playing friends with her, and you'll get The Bare Souls.


Some of Bristol's finest musicians bringing an old sound right up to date, in a way that'll have you up and yelling for more. True class.”


Kanan Keenay - Grammy-Nominated Song Writer




From sleazy blues, to sultry soul, to good old fashioned rock n' roll, with a heavy dose of funk thrown in to keep you moving, The Bare Souls are breathing fresh life into classic genres.



Florence Pardoe leads the group with a rich and powerful voice, reminiscent of the 70's soul greats, and writes lyrical, soul-baring and often painfully relatable songs, exploring passion, fear and joy.


She is joined by some of the finest musical talent her hometown of Bristol has to offer. The full 7-piece outfit brings the songs to life on stage with an energetic and passionate performance. A live show not to be missed.


Since forming in 2016 The Bare Souls have rocked many of the southwest's best live music venues, as well as a number of festivals including Shindig, Wilderness, Nozstock and Boomtown..
