Austin, Texas, USA

SOuLUTION is an American Rock band with deep influences from the classic days when music was pure and soulful. Their modern blend of compositions, high energy approach, electric stage presence, and originality, is mesmerizing even to seasoned musicians & enthusiasts alike!


SOuLUTION was formed in Los Angeles, CA in January of 2006. Front man Casey Abay started playing a few solo shows in Hollywood while he attended the Musicians Institute. Before a previously booked gig, he invited Dave Edery and Kyle Hayes (fellow students at M.I.) to sit in with him having only 4 days to prepare. They continued playing that gig for the next few weeks and then added drummer Matt D. to the mix and things started to come together.

SOuLUTION played shows in Southern California until June of 2008, when they made a move to Dave’s hometown of Honolulu, Hawaii. Once there, they asked Ric Lane to take the lead on the new open spot for a drummer since Matt D. continued his musical career back in L.A. SOuLUTION performed non-stop on the island of Oahu, acquiring a fan base like no other, for approximately one year.

SOuLUTION has since moved to Austin, TX where they once again had to pick up a new drummer due to Ric Lane's preference to stay in Hawaii. Armed this time with the scrutiny to choose a musician who was talented, career oriented, and fully committed, they found their perfect fit with Mike D, and he now makes up the final piece of SOuLUTION.

SOuLUTION has played 600+ shows in Los Angeles, Hawaii, and Austin combined. The venues have included The House of Blues (Sunset Strip), The Knitting Factory, The Cat Club, Kelley O'neills, The Shack Waikiki, Coconut Willys, Mai Tai Bar, Cedar Street Courtyard, Maria Maria's, Speakeasy, Antone's, Sherlocks, Ace's Lounge, Maggie Mae's, and many more. In December of 2008 they won Hawaii’s biggest Battle of the Bands, The Mai Tai Rumble, earning them over $16,000 in cash and prizes, not to mention great exposure and more confidence within the band.

SOuLUTION now currently resides in Austin, TX to pursue their musical journey and continue to write/record their second full length album.


The full length album, "Another Road, Another Story" is currently available and was released in March 2010.
