the great music of Tower of Power with their
hits “You’re Still a Young Man”, “So Very Hard
to Go” and “Soul With a Capital S”. For
close to 50 years, Tower of Power has been
creating their own kind of soul music. Tower's
rhythm section lays down a groove like no
other band. The band’s horn driven sound is
unique, and the way they approach everything,
from writing and arranging to mixing and
performing, is totally their own.
“Horns blasting, Tower of Power started on a
high note and never really came
down.” - Ottawa Citizen
