The Suffers are Houston's award-winning 10-piece ensemble that have redefined the sound of Gulf Coast Soul. Established in 2011, The Suffers’ lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo, guitarist Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose “Chapy” Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora. Jazz saxophonist Cory Wilson and guitarist/vocalist Alex Zamora filled out the rhythm section, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals.
Last year brought the band to new heights, as they played 150+ shows across North America, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, and made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman. This year, the band officially released their much anticipated self-titled album in February and performed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Suffers have quickly progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at notable festivals and events, while remaining a local Houston favorite, accepting 20 Houston Press Music Awards in the last three years.
The Suffers’ album is now available on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify. For further information on The Suffers, please visit: www.thesuffers.com.

"Much like Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Franklin and The Suffers can own a room... it won't be long before people are making room for The Suffers" - Buzzfeed
"They're the sort of neo-retro group you never knew music was so badly missing"
"‘Make Some Room,’ opens with a blast of classic-sounding R&B horns and spends the next four and a half minutes subtly shifting from slinky to soaring and back again.” - The New York Times
