They have released 3 studio albums, with 2017’s Vision & Faith reaching #5 on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay chart.

Previously known as Chich and The Soul Messengers, the Sydney based bluesy-soul revivalists present a dynamite live show honed at regular gigs in Sydney and surrounds, the band having played over 90 shows since 2014 at venues such as Sydney’s The Basement, Marrickville’s Lazybones and Newtown’s Leadbelly.

Soul Messengers are Rich Aljinovic (vocals, guitar), Simon Morel (guitar), Dave Kirby (drums) and Victor Balconi (Bass). They love to play live and are intent on spreading their soul manifesto. With a great rhythm section and happening lead guitarist behind him, Rich feels free to let go and enjoy the moment, freeing his gutsy, soul drenched voice to float between grooving rock ‘n’ soul to sweet sultry ballads.
