Soul Puppet

Soul Puppet


Americana, Folk, Rock, Blues,


What began as a trio of high school friends who shared a common love for sounds of America’s past bloomed into a long hard road of writing and developing their sound. Their passion for American Roots music led them to the home of legendary Band drummer and singer Levon Helm in Woodstock, New York. It was this unique experience that laid the foundation for the band’s new found passion and sound. In 2005 Rowdy continued a professional relationship with Levon in the studio, and Luke and Stephan went on the road behind grammy award winning artist, Jonny Lang on his successful 2005 acoustic tour. After that tour, Stephan and Luke reunited with Rowdy in Burbank, California to start working on their first album.

In 2008 Soul Puppet welcomed two new members, Andrew Perusi and Paris Carney. Andrew, hailing from Monroe, Conneticut is a graduate of the prestigious New School for Music in New York City. Playing bass, he brings to the studio and stage his ability to create an undercurrent of skillful lows that draw you in close to the depth of each song’s meaning. New York City native Paris adds a soulful fluidity and lightness to the group with her effortless leading vocals. She is a seasoned Jazz and Roots vocalist and younger sister to Reeve and Zane Carney of the emerging rock band “Carney”.
