Since forming as a quartet 15 years ago, Speedometer has been at the forefront of the funk and soul scene. Their music has been on the playlist of every funk and soul DJ dropping their heavy funk, latin or soulful beats on dancefloors around the world. Their music has also been the backdrop for countless TV shows and even Hollywood film trailers and has inspired a new a generation of funk bands too.
The early days were small gigs, playing Meters covers and Meters-inspired originals (hence the name). As the attention grew, so did the band, from a quartet up to the 10-piece outfit seen today. On the way, there have been countless singles, a load of albums, collaborations with some of legendary names in soul and funk, and toured all over Europe and Japan.
In 2012 they produced an album with James Brown’s soul sister Martha High and toured Europe promoting the album “Soul Overdue”
The release of their eagerly awaited LP “NO TURNING BACK” in July features the amazing soul vocals of James Junior.
“Great new album, probably the best Speedometer album ever!”
