Feeling a bit camera shy


Dynamic. Electric. Enthralling. Energetic. From the satiny singing to the amazing arrangements, the soulful R&B Jazz sensation Sol Factor erupts on stage the way a Fourth of July fireworks suddenly burst upon the still night. It is the sole factor why they are sharing the stage with the likes of Kem, Alex Bugnon, Whispers, Keith Sweat, Eric Benet, Zapp and Heather Headley to name a few. It is why they were selected to perform at Jermaine Dupri 2006 Grammy Awards appreciation party.

After marinating on the scene for three years like a bottle of fine French wine, Sol Factor is pouring out delicious musical servings for those longing for the era when soul/R&B/funk bands ruled the airwaves, dominated the charts, and hijacked your hearts.

Sol Factor plays past and present cover songs such as Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, John Legend, Michael Jackson, Usher, Beyonce, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Brian McKnight and OutKast – and do it with uncanny accuracy and innovativeness. However, their 2005 CD, Blue Couch, provides a delicious morsel of originals to come from the heralded band, such as Baby Come Over, Back To The Inforum, Never Know and the title track Blue Couch. All of which have played by the most popular Atlanta R&B and hip hop radio stations.

“Our sound is soulful with a touch of jazz,” boasts Sol Factor founder Phillip Muckle. “You have such a mixture of R&B, Soul and Jazz. No matter what we play, it tickles your emotions. Most of all, it touchs you. Everything we do is from the heart and that’s the way it comes out.”

Sol Factor consists of: Phillip Muckle, the bass guitarist, connoisseur and brainchild behind the eclectic bands’ riveting repertoire of genres. Ryan Kilgore is the saxophonist who plays as if his days on earth are numbered. He’s willing to blow his lungs out for his audience – and all without ever missing a single note. “I’ve seen him blow until his lips started bleeding,” Phil said. “It doesn’t matter; he’s going to get you through it. He’s going to wipe the blood off and keep on moving. He’s willing to do whatever, whenever.”

Keyboardist Tyrik Waymer, Mr. New York, lights up the band like Christmas lights on Times Square. Marc Mays, the industry seasoned drummer who displays such technical precision with his game that you wouldn’t be surprised if he came on stage in a lab coat and clipboard. And then there’s lead singer Dawn McClain. The Los Angeles native has a voice that rises and soars as if it were riding on the back of angel’s wings. She is both silky and soulful, coupled with a .powerful yearning and poignancy in her velvety voice that recalls the female legends of yesteryear. One minute, this songstress can sing with enough sweetness to overdose a honeybee, the next minute, McClain revs it up into fifth gear and tears into a cover song in such a way as to make you feel that she invented the song. Together, Sol Factor’s sound makes for a memorable and momentous night out. It’s not just a concert. It’s become an experience.

They say that to peer into the depths of the ocean is to behold its true beauty. The same can be said of the music from the multifaceted and multi-layered group Sol Factor. They don’t produce lightweight music that floats along the surface of today’s radio playlist. They take you deep into the emotional recesses of your soul, unearthing sounds that makes you recall the good times when people really enjoyed themselves when they went out.

Now that you know the players, get ready to hear their incredible sound. Buckle up tight and get ready to delight in the rhythmic rollercoaster ride that Sol Factor wants to take you on. After traveling through music’s modern era, you’ll be spent, excited and ready to strap yourself back in for another go-around with Sol Factor.
