Joslyn & The Sweet Compression:
"Magical...gives everybody the joy." — Billboard Magazine
"A refreshing take on the neo-soul / funk sound, unbound by modern cliches." — Glide Magazine
"A marvel...an instant classic!” — Soul Tracks
After cultivating her dynamic voice and performance skills in backup roles and stage plays, Joslyn Hampton teamed with her stepfather, Marty Charters (a touring guitarist and songwriter who has shared the stage with legends such as Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, and Van Morrison), to compose a captivating set of tunes and assemble an ace band. Joslyn & The Sweet Compression (Marty Charters - guitar, Steve Holloman - keyboards, Smith Donaldson - bass, Rashawn Fleming - drums, Trevin Little - saxophone, and Chase Fleming - trombone and trumpet) combine to deliver a hook-filled mix of funk and soul on their self-titled debut album, released in 2019. A headlining favorite at regional clubs and music festivals, they are poised to engage fans across the country with widespread touring in 2022.
Based in Asheville, NC, the genre-fluid trio doles out groove-centric rhythms that are easy on the ears and melt the soul. An eclectic pastiche of sound influenced by pop, rock, hip hop, funk, and reggae — the engaging songwriting speaks to the human condition, and the hooks stick in the head for days on end. Chilltonic exudes a blend of progressive sounds hinted with a mysterious sense of nostalgia.
