Bio

Soul Shaker is a “unique sound” in today’s realm of music choices. With the music industry stream-lining today’s artists to a very uniform and corporate mold, Soul Shaker offers their listeners with an alternative “groovy” blast from the past yet manages to incorporate a modern spin on their music and sound production.

This all-original power-trio consists of three Northeast Ohio natives who represent their “Rock-Capital” roots proudly. In an attempt to capture their crunchy, time-capsule, stripped-down approach to rock ‘n’ roll music; Soul Shaker doesn’t rely on computer generated samples. The band plays with raw feeling and the energy that is generated amongst themselves to produce the classic but modern Soul Shaker sound. The musical talent within the group is amazing as all members of the band are seasoned musicians who have never given up their dream to pursue their love, passion and musical gifts.
With positive lyrical content and a back-to-the-basics attitude, Soul Shaker’s marketing is a similar business model to micro-breweries where bigger doesn’t always equal better. The band’s concentration is on quality, a rudimentary approach to equipment and knowing how to play their instruments to their fullest capabilities. (Basically doing more with less.) The Soul Shaker groove is a syncopated, catchy, full-bodied, classic rock feel that is refreshing to listen to and is not your typical “canned” radio sound.

Soul Shakers founder Scott Davis comes from a varied musical background including metal, hard rock/rock styles as well more contemporary forms of music. His guitar influences range from Jimmy Page, Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, & 70's blues style axe slingers.
Scotts vocal style is raw & loose having a certain "attitude" about it however he keeps the lyrical content in the realm of being positive.

Bassist Paul Ketchum has played in numerous hard rock and metal bands and is enjoying being able to expand his bass boundries in this "hook & groove" style rock with some extended jam sections.

Drummer, Alan Mighton, was the finishing touch and perfect fit in ability with strong pocket presence and a "syncopated" style that holds together the Soul Shaker sound. Alan started playing drums at an early age after he attended a Beach Boy's concert with his parents. The late/great Dennis Wilson handed Alan a drumstick after the concert and he's been hooked ever since. He comes from a diverse musical background including some jazz and rock.

Soul Shaker is a unique experience not heard often these days, not playing "Classic" covers, but rather all original tunes in a classic style. This allows them to be a contrast to the more mainstream current trends.
