He has been called the «Welsh Tiger», but he is also known as the white soul man par excellence: Tom Jones. His love for African-American music links him to the California funk band Tower of Power – and to the young Stefanie Heinzmann from Valais. Major emotions and razor-sharp rhythms are guaranteed. In the beat age, Tom Jones was Great Britain’s first «Soulman» – an explosive performer, who was compared to Wilson Pickett or Solomon Burke. Ten years later, it was the Tower of Power, which was one of the first white bands to produce credible, first class funk. And now, it is Swiss singer Stefanie Heinzmann who is inspired by the spirit of soul.
