Biography

The Southern Soul band consists, of three kindred spirits from hills, and valleys of Southern West Virginia. This collective functions under the spiritual guidance and moral direction of one, Mr Bud Carroll. Some might remember this character from the lead guitar spot of former West Virginia major label rock act American Minor.

Having shared the stages with acts such as, Tom Petty (who's keyboardist Benmont Tench colaborated on AM's recorded debut), John Fogerty, Blues Traveler, (whom Carroll was invited to set in with several times over the course of their tour together), George Thorogood, not to mention appearing at 2006 Bonaroo festival, once again warming up for Mr. Petty's Heartbreakers, this kid is no stranger to the big stages and the bright lights.

This time the picture is a little diffrent. Instead of big rock guitars and slick expensive sounding records, the sound they produce is very much like the crackling broadcast of distant AM station on an early spring evening. That is, if real music was still being produced and aired over AM radio stations.

You might, hear strains of motown, stax, some blues creeping in from Memphis and Chicago as well as some strains of the faint crying of steel guitar bleeding over from WGNS.

When you experience the southern soul band live, you will hear a modern sounding soul band, with the chops to make any Jam head a believer. Whether you are wearing tye die, cowboyboots, or dress shoes, this group can hit you where you live, and take you all the way back home.
