The Gold Souls
The GoldSouls are bringing the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to the Northern California scene and beyond. Drawing from a variety of influences and experiences, they deliver captivating lyrics and fresh arrangements over a vintage sound.
Led by the dynamic Juniper Waller, the group is made up of young talent hailing from the Bay and Sacramento areas. With Matt Hevesh on guitar, Alex Severson on the keys, Billy D. Thompson on the drums, and Jace Dorn on bass, each member has a hand in writing and song composition, making The GoldSouls a truly collaborative effort.
The GoldSouls burst on the Sacramento music scene in early 2017, and are swiftly becoming one of the most promising new talents in the area.
They released a self- titled five song EP in May of 2017 and went on tour down the California coast soon after. Their next single, “Nobody,” was released in late 2017 and was featured on Apple Music Blues’ Hot Tracks list. They released their full length album “Good To Feel” on June 22, 2018.
Their newest single, “True Blue” was produced/engineered by multi-Grammy winner Timothy Bloom and was released on February 12, 2019, followed by a spring tour.
Shake Alert, Santa Fe's favorite Afrobeat & Funk band, is a happy explosion of musical energy and invention that draws from the diverse experiences of its members: a super funky Texan bassist; a guitar slinging young’un from New England; an educator who moonlights as a deejay, producer and vocalist; a keyboard wizard masquerading as a semi-retired social worker; and a rotating gaggle of highly adept drummers and percussionists who play everything from authentic African and Brazilian street music to brainy avant-garde jazz. All of this stuff shows up in Shake Alert's all-original, all homegrown music, but the primary directive is to throw down some filthy, unfiltered funk and get you up off your butt and onto the dance floor!
Shake Alert debut album will be available in 2019. Connect with the band by visiting @shakealertmusic on your social networks.
