Sulfur City embodies everything rock music is supposed to be. Loud and gritty. Dangerous and unafraid. Sexual and political. The band connects directly with our restless souls and reminds us of the fiercely nonconformist nature of it. The band lays down edgy Psychedelic Garage Rock and Roll led by vocalist and electric washboardist Lori Paradis. Her presence is immediate and unforgettable with lyrics that echo the world we all share. Haunting and poetic they show us the truth of humanity. The line-up of Paradis, guitarist/vocalist Jesse Lagace, bassist/vocalist Steve Smith and drummer/vocalist Sam King is raw, nonnegotiable and burns like a house on fire.
Following up on their well-received album, ‘Talking Loud’ released by Alive Naturalsound Sulfur City will be releasing a new record entitled ‘NO WAY OUT’. The set has been eagerly anticipated by many close to Sulfur City and they feel strongly that it will attract a larger audience. ‘No Way Out’ is a potent mix of rough-hewn soul and blast furnace boogie, with tales of the beaten down and infamous. Fans of Janis Joplin, Black Keys, and Dead Weather will recognize the vibe of Sulfur City as it uses the classic rock and roll building blocks to make up to the minute modern music. Meet your new favorite band.
