Biography

Soul Liquor is the mastermind funk creation of Thomas Blake. A preacher's kid from Ohio, Thomas was a natural born musical talent, an existential visionary, a destined leader. At the age of 4, his father bought him his first drum set. The saxophone, tuba, trumpet, and countless keyboards would soon follow. Growing up in rural Ohio Thomas was a big fish in a small pond. He was never exposed to artists such as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye or Pink Floyd. The artistry, the soul and the message of his music are completely raw. Self taught and self originated. Thomas Blake's solo projects: The Trilogy Of Thomas Blake, and the Pandemonius Rebellion Film Collective, can be viewed here: myspace.com/thevocalking1 myspace.com/meetthedeadman youtube.com/pandemoniusrebellion Chris De La Cruz grew up in Miami.

Upon first meeting Thomas Blake the seed of Soul Liquor was planted. Sitting in on jam sessions and watching him play, he began to wonder - could i do this? It was the perfect exchange. Thomas would teach him about instrumentation and he would teach Thomas about music theory and theatre. Determined to following this through, Chris bought his first drum set, shocking everyone especially Thomas Blake. About the first time he played with Thomas as Soul Liquor Chris says, "It was surreal, I've never played drums in my life. I was afraid of the experience because it was so powerful. It opened my mind to the possibility of being a musician, or maybe that day i became a musician. I don't think I have actually digested the change I am a part of."
