19 MARCH 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – KISS co-founder & frontman, best-selling author and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer PAUL STANLEY’s Soul Station officially released their highly anticipated debut studio album Now and Then via UMe/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.
Listen to Now and Then HERE
A collection of nine classic soul covers and five original tracks, Now and Then has received early critical acclaim. Rock Cellar Magazine describes the new material as “strong and radio-ready original songs penned by Stanley that perfectly capture the songwriting sophistication, vocal stylings and sumptuous production sheen of classic Motown and Philly International records.” Rolling Stone notes “Stanley is an encyclopedia of soul music knowledge, and he’s made it his mission to preserve and celebrate classic tunes by the Temptations, the Delfonics, and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles on his new album.”
Now and Then is the first-ever full-length album from Soul Station: A band gathering some of today’s leading musicians to pay tribute to the greatest artists and songs from the R&B and soul catalog to keep this vital music current. While a surprise to many, Stanley’s early pivotal roots in this music has quietly turned this passion into a celebrated touring and recording band. Stanley’s 15-piece ensemble group has toured the U.S. and Japan, but it wasn’t until recently that they were able to get in the studio together and record Now and Then.

The band is augmented by three string players and two horn players of the same stature enabling Soul Station’s wall of sound to be firmly rooted in the past while staking claim to both the present and future.
