Sol Driven Train is a band in motion. Perpetually piling on and off the bus, the momentum of their hard work and heart-felt music propels the group in front of growing crowds across the country. At shows, the band members bounce to the pulse of the music along with the crowd. Stylistically the band seamlessly mixes Allmanesque Southern rock, languid world-beat, swampy funk and downright catchy melodies as they swap lead singers and instruments. A punchy horn section adds an extra dimension of sweaty soul. Catch them live at The Melting Point headlining their own evening, after opening for legendary Bayou Blues act Tab Benoit twice with great success!

If you need to visualize the soul, think of it as a kind of train. Yes, a long, lonesome freight train rumbling from generation to generation on an eternally rainy morning: its boxcars are loaded with sighs and laughter, its hobos are angels, its engineer is the queen of spades - and the queen is wild. Whoo-whoo! Hear that epiphanic whistle blow. The train's destination is the godhead, but it stops at the Big Bang, at the orgasm, and at the hole in the fence that the red fox sneaks through down behind the barn. It's simultaneously a local and an express, but it doesn't transport weaponry, and it certainly ain't no milk run."- Tom Robbins, Villa Incognito

Sol Driven Train's music weaves through genres like a Tom Robbins paragraph. The band's sonic schizophrenia absorbs American influences like Jon Prine and Paul Simon, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms into honest songs about life, love, loss, and long johns. The 5-piece band, based in Charleston, SC, features 4 rotating lead vocalists, and multi-instrumental talent spread across horns, strings, and percussion.

"Believe," the band's 8th independent release in 10 years (including a live album, a live concert DVD, and two studio albums for children), is getting national airplay. The band stays busy on the road, averaging 150 shows per year, and is appearing this summer at festivals and clubs across the country. more >>>
