Biography

Jon Felton's Soulmobile began as a solo project in which Jon played two foot-operated drums while he played guitar and sang. His
emotionally raw lyrics and stop-start arrangements contrasted with the whimsy of his "one-man band."

Audiences got the joke and he amassed a following from which his band eventually grew.
Jon wasn't looking for people who played a certain instrument. He was looking for people with a certain
kind of heart: people he could grow with and trust.
The ragtag ensemble which resulted was a delightful junkyard of instruments and personalities.
New songs emerged, matching sophisticated arrangements to Jon's
sympathetic and arresting lyrics.
The Soulmobile embraces a simple
and comprehensive belief which permeates their music and lyrics:
A peace can be found between things which seem separate, and that
there is a hope of wholeness for scattered parts.

Now, years later, the band is in many ways a realization of that belief. The "Jon Felton's Soulmobile" of today functions like a unified organism. With thousands of miles and countless shows behind them and ahead of them, JF&SOUL seem likely to keep on "rolling along," as their popular song says, and giving audiences far and wide reason to pay attention, possibly to smile, and to hope.
