Biography

Kindred Souls is an all original rock-n-roll band currently performing in New York . Their music is fueled by strong songwriting and power-house vocals. Like the very best of rock, the music has shades of blues, jazz, R&B, funk and soul. They ave played at the IMG New York City Marathon for four years running, and become a regular sight at both Asbury Park's The Stone Pony, and in New York's West Village. The band has a great live show that takes the audience through the whole
range of human emotion.

Kindred Souls was formed by singer-songwriter Jeff Rafferty and keyboardist Lon Bachrach. They have written and self produced five albums, taking the time to sharpen their songwriting skills, and have developed a signature musical style that is all their own. The band features the considerable talents of bassist Stan Quincy Adams, Ted Heman and Jeff Samet on guitar, and drummer Paul Lavenhar.

Having released their new CD "Takes Two" in 2006, they have filmed and released a video for the title song, "Takes Two". Also, the band has recently gained global distribution for the album, having released it through ItsAboutMusic.com. Kindred Souls is currently performing live in the New York / New Jersey area. They have been featured at such venues as The Lion’s Den, The Bitter End, and Don Hills, and The Knitting Factory.

Kindred Souls has had great reviews of “Takes Two” by both Tim Louie of The Aquarian and Al Muzer of The East Coast Rocker, who writes: “The big story here are the amazing lead vocals of songwriter Jeff Rafferty. Huge, gutsy, emotive and arresting with more commercial appeal than a combination of Meat Loaf, Richard Thompson, Roger Daltry, Foreigner’s Lou Gramm, and Jefferson Airplane’s Marty Balin.”

The band is now working on songs for their next album, and will be back in the studio to record the CD in mid May. Kindred Souls is in the process of choosing proper management and shopping their upcoming project to several independent and major labels. Look for a release date in the fall.

Lyrics

Takes Two

Written By: Jeff Rafferty

Takes two to get things right.
Takes two to get through the night.
Takes two to build walls strong.
Takes two to live love long.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh,oh.
Takes two to get things wrong.
Takes two to build love strong.
Takes two to see through the light.
Takes two to get through the night.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh,oh.
Love is right, love is wrong,
Love is weak, love is strong.
Love is here to stay.
Love is gone away.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh.
Takes two... oh,oh,oh,oh.

Day Starts Again

Written By: Jeff Rafferty

Don't matter where you are
Or where you been,
The day starts again.
Like the trees in the woods
Hidin' from the cold.
Like the man at the half-way
Afraid of gettin' old.
There's word on the street,
All things begin again.
It don't matter where you are
Or where you been
The day starts again.
Like the leaves and the trees
Hurlin' to the ground.
Like a man walkin' 'round,
Gonna take this damn town.
There's word on the street
All things begin again.
Don't matter where you are
Or where you been,
The day starts again.
One step ahead, two steps behind.
Two steps ahead, four steps behind.
One step ahead, two steps behind.
Two steps ahead, four steps behind.
Don't matter where you are
Or where you been,
The day starts again.

Can't Make It Rain

Written By: Jeff Rafferty

I know I should cry
But I can't make it rain.
Seven swords burning
In your name.
I know I should learn
To let you go.
On this I'll heal
Real slow.
If there's ever been a light
To shine on me.
If there's ever been a heart
That touched right through.
You were the one
That gave me wings to fly.
From me to you.
I know I should cry
But I can't make it rain.
Seven swords burning
In your name.
I know I should learn
To let you go.
On this I'll heal
Real slow.
If there's ever been a light
To shine on me.
If there's ever been a heart
That touched right through.
You were the one
That gave me wings to fly.
From me to you.
Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain.
Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain.
Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain.
Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain.
I know I should cry
But I can't make it rain.

Leap of Faith

Written By: Jeff Rafferty

Look in the mirror,
What do I see.
Not afraid
To face the real me.
Paint a picture
How it's supposed to be.
Not afraid
To face the real me.

Gonna take a leap of faith.
Gonna learn to believe
In what love can do.
Gonna dance in the dark.
Gonna hold on to the spark
That brings me to you.
Gonna take a leap of Faith.

Walk the road,
Mile away.
Carry the weight of the world
On my shoulders this way.

Gonna take a Leap of Faith.

Justify

Written By: Jeff Rafferty

Make love, make love,
make love, not war.

Make love, make love,
make love, even the score.

How do we justify,
Living in the street.
How do we justify,
Kids no food to eat.
How do we justify,
Judge a man the color of his skin.
How do we justify,
Raising our guns to win.

Make love, make love,
make love, not war.

Make love, make love,
make love, even the score.

How do we justify,
Living in the street.
How do we justify,
Kids no food to eat.
How do we justify,
Judge a man the color of his skin.
How do we justify,
Dropping our bombs to win.

Make love, make love,
Make love, not war!
