The Unblessed are a soul rock band from southern England. Their music blends influences of seminal rock artists David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen with those of soul legends like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin, adding several nods to the funk of Kool and the Gang.
It’s been said that their music “doesn’t sound like it’s come from here. It sounds more like something from the southern states of America than the home counties.” That’s something that’s taken as a compliment for a band that looks across the pond to Robert Randolph, Vintage Trouble and the Tedeschi Trucks Band as examples of bands that give inspiration.
The release of their first single ‘Honesty’ in early 2019 was followed by ‘Devil Or The Deep Blue Sea’ in November of the same year. Both are available on Spotify, Apple Music among other download sites.
