For some great, down-to-earth soul make sure you check out Seattle outfit Pickwick – a six-man band that’s already getting some well-deserved attention in print as well as the ‘Net. Recently earning a slot on NPR‘s 5 Artists You Should Know In 2011, the band delivers classic blue-eyed soul with just the slightest hint of Motown as well as some nice folky roots.

Great songs, good musicianship and excellent vocal delivery, they have three singles and a split EP released so far, and I gotta say my favorite is Myths, Vol. 2 released in 2010. Let’s hope there’s an album coming this year!
