Bio

Soulvibe has earned a reputation as Jakarta’s Hawt up and coming Neo-Soul, R&B, and Jazz act, since their conception back in ’03. They personally call their music as “Pop Universal”. Made up of two front men Abenk & Bayu on Vocals, Bassist Handy, Asa on Guitar, Caesar on Drums, Frans on Piano and Rio on Synth, “Sounds of Universal Love” never fails to elevate the vibe in every show with their vibrant presence. “We just started out by playing and having a good time on stage, sharing our common love for soulful music and from there things just fall into place!” Bayu states.

Here’s the latest review from their performance at International Java Jazz Festival 2009:
“Soulvibe finally reached their stardom. It was very crowded with all their enthusiastic fans; the feeling could be sensed even before the show started. They opened up the show creatively and interestingly with house techno music style, through a DJ, and then they joined on stage giving their all for a really blasting performance. I felt really happy to see how youngsters or teenagers could learn to love jazz from the performance of energic youngsters with modern concept like Soulvibe.” (jazzuality.com)

Aside from performing, Soulvibe has been productive in writing their original tunes, incorporating everything they’ve been influenced by, both on stage and in the studio. Back in ’05, they’ve even had their demo version of their original tune “No More” played on one of Jakarta’s leading radio stations, in which they’ve climbed up the chart, all the way to the top!

“After a long writing process and careful selection of songs, we had chosen 11 tracks to be properly recorded and produced for our debut album, which was released in January ‘08”, vocalist Abenk says. Each member has contributed in writing these songs, sharing their stories and musical ideas, making the album rich with their mixture of different backgrounds and character.

The debut album also had a warm respond from their fans. It has been an amazing year they delivered a message of universal love in their own soulful way! “Soulvibe enhances a mixture of discrete music genres, spanning across hip hop, related to the frequent rap lines, RnB, pop, funk, and some other out of the box styles. But above all, jazz accounts for its dominant influence, evident on the sets of chord progression formed throughout the tracks.” (Indonesiajazzreview)

Since their very first album, Soulvibe has committed to show their true colors and keep exploring the unique identity of the band. Do you feel the vibe!? Yes I feel the Vibe! It's Soulvibe!
