Biography

Deepwater Soul Society’s musical style is as diverse as the band members themselves, giving the group their unique sound: smooth, powerful, soulfully dark, and blissfully energetic. This Charleston rock power trio displays a wide range of tones and tunes in their portfolio, creating there own genre of progressive rock. The pensive lyrics, colorful melodies and rhythms create a seamless mesh where grassroots meets new-wave rock and acoustic meets electric.

Deepwater Soul Society consists of singer/bassist Josh Brewer, lead guitarist Sean Money, and drummer Daniel Wilson. Deepwater Soul Society has created a dark and sultry, yet energized and up-beat texture that moves the body and the soul. Their poetic lyrics and captivating arrangements take the listener between musical genres and into a labyrinth of melodic reverberation.

When asked what kind of sound Deepwater Soul Society has, the band more often than not lacks a proper answer. Sean Money, guitarist and co-songwriter once said, "We sound like your favorite band." Perhaps a bit assuming even arrogant, but well…confident.

Deepwater's debut release, Jumping from Highrises, was written, engineered and produced by the band itself, under the leadership of drummer and producer Daniel Wilson. "Producing our own first record was important because we made a lot of positive mistakes", Wilson said. There is no doubt that the production and completion of Jumping from Highrises was exactly what the band needed to catapult their next wave of creative inspirations. These “positive mistakes” are at the independent heart of the intensely creative DIY ethos that burns at the core Deepwater’s philosophy. They are unafraid of making mistakes, delving into new creative territories, pushing their music to new heights and themselves to new possibilities.

Already, the members of Deepwater are hard at work (and play) writing and composing the next long list of song candidates for their sophomore album. Pulling from the vintage Deepwater catalog, combined with writing of new and fresh tunes is undoubtedly manifesting into a new sound that still embodies what this band does, both live and in the studio. "Holding onto your roots while forging forward into new territory is really important for us as writers and performers.", says Brewer, vocalist, guitarist and co-writer. "We need to keep our heads on straight, while losing them at the same time.".
