With similar musical backgrounds & a lifetime of experience and mutual respect, Stone Soul Clique continues to evolve their genre of "garage band/ proto-punk rock". Combining focused musicianship and '60's tonality, the band delivers timeless guitar phrases, Mod/Rocker lyrics, and a solid backbeat. Their 2011 Texas Legacy Music Awards power-performance earned them producer Margaret Moser's recognition: "surprised everyone, not only with how contemporary their songs of 40+ years ago sound, but the seamless way the music of the members ... melded together in true supergroup styleā€¯.

Guitarist Glen Vanlandingham has been involved as a professional music director for over 30 years. He began his performance career as lead guitarist with McAllen, TX-based The Headstones, who released 4 singles on Pharaoh Records during the 1960s.

Guitarist Dave Smith, while with Christopher and the Souls, co-penned "Diamonds, Rats, and Gum" (Pharaoh Records), selected by Texas Monthly's senior editor as one of the "20 garage rock songs you must hear before you die".

Bassist Bill Black performed with the Beaumont, TX, pop-rock group The Clique, who released a single later covered by REM.

Drummer Paul Givens' background came from playing in local Midwest classic rock & psychedelic rock bands. He has worked extensively with both Christopher & The Souls and Stone Soul Clique.

Vocalist/guitarist Allen Kirsh played in the McAllen, TX-based Christopher & The Souls, with Austin's country legend Kenneth Threadgill, and with the funk & fusion band The Rhythm Method. He performed on an early Austin City Limits spin-off show called "Hill Country Music", hosted by Jerry Jeff Walker.

Original, vintage music from the former bands of several Stone Soul Clique members has been kept alive with the 2010 release of Cicadelic Records "Congregation for Anti-Flirts Inc. - The McAllen, Texas Teen Scene 1965-1967". The band's visibility has continued to grow with this release.
