Southside Desire

Sprung from the littered alleyways of South Minneapolis, Southside Desire is Femme-fronted soul, homegrown and destined to serenade the city with the next wave of rhythm & blues. Angelic harmonies ride under heated croons, summoning the soul and disco hits of yesteryear while projecting from the depths of today. The songs are all original, bringing neo-soul to a new standard with a wall of golden voices and a thick, unstoppable groove.

Southside Desire make original music influenced, but not limited by vintage soul, R&B and disco. Marvel Devitt recorded a cappella demos and sent them to local musician friends and family. In March of 2012, she assembled a rhythm section of Minneapolis scene vets (including her husband Trevor Engelbrektson) and a set of gifted backup singers. Marvel's detailed lyrics are simultaneously personal, insightful, funny and poetic. She is supported by meticulously-crafted harmonies and an expressive and tight rhythm section with a guitarist inspired equally by Bad Brains and Billy Strange.
