Powerhouse singer Mahalia Barnes, one of the most impressive female vocalists to come out of Australia, and her band The Soul Mates have teamed up with American blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa to release an album of Betty Davis covers called Ooh Yea! The Betty Davis Songbook. Scheduled for release on 2/24/15, it explores tracks from Davis sexy, raw funk records of the early 70s. Betty Davis s unique story is still fairly unknown.

Every era has its hipsters. Soul Mates Christiaan Van Vuuren and Nick Boshier grope for the cutting edge – past present and future – in a bromance for the ages.
Soul Mates is the story of two kindred spirits trapped in a cycle of death and rebirth, exploring love, loyalty and fashion in four different lifetimes: Cavemen 50,000 years ago, Kiwi Assassins in 1981, Bondi Hipsters in the present day and in 2093, agents toiling in the offices of Travel Time.
This installment in the popular 100 Hits series contains 100 classic Soul stompers featuring artist Al Wilson, Dobie Gray, Jackie Wilson, Chairmen of the Board, Willie Kendrick, Robert Knight, Barbara Acklin, Laura Greene, Barbara Lynn, Jimmy Radcliffe and many others.
