Sven Hammond Soulis a funky ensemble, surrounding Hammond player Sven Figee who is from The Hague. In 2007 the group made its debut with a live album. That was a logical move, since the steamy soul and funk of Sven Hammond Soul is best experienced on stage. The band became more well-known with their studio album The Marmalade Sessions, from 2010. And at the end of last year, their third product, The Apple Field, was released, resounding with influences from blues, pop and mariachi music, as well as true soul and vigorous funk. Figee's throbbing, moaning and groaning Hammond organ strings together all the various elements. Besides band members who were present from the very beginning, such as guitarist Tim Eijmaal, bassist Glenn Gaddum and drummer Joost Kroon, the band has found new members: sax players Tom Beek and Arjan Muusz, trumpeter Rik Mol and singer Ivan Peroti.
