Biography

Like an after hours diner filled with loud obnoxious drunks, Soulfist has a little something for everyone. Prince, Pantera, Rush, Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Alice Cooper were thrown into a blender, fed to a toxic pig, and out came North Jersey’s widely accepted original quartet.

So what does this sound like? It depends. The music ranges from a dark heavy groove to alternative hard rock to blues to a touch of punk. This versatile band has overdriven guitars (Jim Alexiou), bottom-heavy bass (Marc Smith) and solid drumming (Cannonball Casini), topped off with rich aggressive vocals delivered by a wild frontman (Steve Falco).

Soulfist is a compound word combining Soul [mind, spirit, intellect] and Fist [energy, power]. On stage, the Fist pounds out an energetic performance. Their set always has more than just original music. A retuned cover song, popular riff medley, or instrumental jam can be expected to turn heads and sell beer.

Basically, they got together, wrote some songs and here they are. In ’98, the band hit the ground running by supporting their debut 6 song EP with many gigs on both sides of the Hudson. Once established, they conquered a bloody Battle of the Bands that went down in Jersey. This led to a cover feature interview for the East Coast Rocker. While the band progressed, "Answers" and “Wild Child” began airing on 105.5 WDHA. They continue to write, record, and perform, as their name and sound spread.

Lyrics

Cover It Up

Written By: Soulfist

I'm the first to say
What we have done my friends
Is not a good thing
Given our choices I believe You know it was a smart play

Lies will hide our fall
Truth is a tangled web
Don't you see my way
Forget what the world's told You is right or wrong
To survive you got to

Cover it up (You Got to)

Fight this day
That's come your way
Face the truth
You're all in trouble
I got your back
Just stay on track
Believe in me
There's nothing left but to

Cover it up (You got to)

Wild Child

Written By: Soulfist

Wild child seize the day
Look ahead don't look away
Make the rules And be the master of your fate
High time can't go wrong
Start to shine like you belong
Cause no one owes you anything at all

Nine lives Disguise
Her only thoughts are only lies
Outside the chase
To rev the car and start the race
I drive inside I see ahead to the finish line
But the wild child….she's waiting there for me

Everybody Wants somebody she once said to me
It doesn't matter who you are
It's what you want to be
I said hey yeah Hey yeah
The wild child's walking on by with me

Wild child here to stay
Up all night and through the day
She sings her song And puts that spell on me again
I try not to look in her eyes
But she does it to me every time
She knows what she wants from me
And I know that she'll get it

Everybody Wants somebody she once said to me
It doesn't matter who you are
It's what you want to be
I said hey yeah Hey yeah
The wild child's walking on by with me

You're a wild child Whoa you're a You're a wild child

Wild child's on the run
Try to catch her before she's gone
Cause now the time has come for us
To move ahead and close the door
She don't need me here Got a mind of her own
She got the eyes of a child and a stare that's in stone
The child is wild She's wild for me
She's the one I want She's the one I see yeah

Wild child seize the day
Look ahead don't look away
Make those rules And be the master of your fate
High time you can't go wrong
Start to shine like you belong
Cause no one owes you anything at all

Everybody wants somebody she once said to me
It doesn't matter who you are
It's what you want to be
I said hey yeah Hey yeah
The wild child's walking on by with me

You're a wild child Whoa you're a You're a wild child

Set Yourself Free

Written By: Soulfist

If you ask me what to say
I'd say reach within and tell me everything
You and I we're not to blame
Rhyme and reason just keep our conscience clean

If you ask me what to do
I'd say hold me watch those
Cloudy skies turn blue
Don't be sorry don't be sad
Just be someone who you might have never been

You can see them all alone
Fighting in the storm
Then you'll see it's true
You gotta
Love yourself to be alive
Find it deep inside
Set yourself free

We both knew it all along
Had to face the fear that chilled inside our mind
Memories will always stay
Deep within our mind until another day

You can see them all alone
Fighting in the storm
Then you'll see its true
You gotta
Love yourself to be alive
Find it deep inside
Set yourself free

This time listen to my words
For all thats it worth
Then you’ll see its true
You gotta
Love yourself to be alive
Find it deep inside
Set yourself free
