"The S.O.E. take 2nd place at The Emergenza Music Festival State Finals"

The Seeds of Evolution, straight from Miami, brought something different to the lineup. The three piece hip-hop band had many people in the venue up on their feet and dancing. With their urban flare blended with true rock music… and even dabbling into funk, blues, and groove, they took the spotlight with grace. Their versatility and execution paid off when the bassist took home the prize for best bassist of the night.

Homegrown: Fort Lauderdale-based Seeds of Evolution

January 30, 2009

The Seeds of Evolution want to reap the harvest from the blend of hip-hop, rock and funk they've planted around South Florida.

The Fort Lauderdale based band is preparing to drop a new CD, The Righteous Crusade, on Saturday at Smith & Jones Bar and Grill, 1313 E. Las Olas Blvd. The launch party is being held in their adopted hometown, where they've crafted their sound since chance meetings brought them together 18 months ago.

Guitarist Brad Pawlak calls it fate.

Columbian-born drummer Andres Roa joins Midwesterner Pawlak and his bassist brother Ron, both from Cleveland. Jae Conway, a Massachusetts native, supplies lead vocals.

The result is a genre the band tags as hydroponic soul, sown from backgrounds that combine hip-hop, r&b, Afro rhythms, Latin beats, blues, jazz and rock.

"It's hydroponic because our music's grown in a unique way and the soul part is because it comes from the heart," Pawlak said.

He said the album melds their abilities into an equal mix of hip-hop and vocal harmonies, infused with straight-up grooves. Crusade is their second effort, following a self-titled disc in 2007.

""The Righteous Crusade" Album review"

Sophomore Success:
The Seeds of Evolution Are Back for Round Two
By Lindsay Patton

Sophomore slump, I think not.

The Seeds of Evolution are carrying on with the next chapter of its indefinite book. The Florida-based band’s second album, The Righteous Crusade, is not just album number two, but a transition into another phase of smooth songwriting.

True to its name, the S.O.E.’s musical evolution begins with the dreamy Introduction straight into the solid rock track, “Forward March.” Still combining their signature hip-hop rock style, the guitars are intense, the percussion is pulsing and the vocals are angry. This track is a little different from the smooth, chill sound the S.O.E. listeners are used to hearing, but the final verdict is a pleasant surprise.

The band calms downs a bit with the next two songs, “Feel the Breeze” and “Deeper.” The joy of these relax-type songs is they are relatable to anyone who enjoys a hammock and a Corona. Once again, the S.O.E. includes the necessary guilty pleasure pop culture references. Check out the lyric where they pay homage to “The Little Mermaid” when they sing, “I’m feeling like Sebastian singing under the sea.”

If you’re looking for wordplay better than Scrabble, take a listen to “No Radio,” an obvious indie fan anthem.

Wait – did I just hear a unanimous “amen” uttered when the vocalist, Jae Conway proclaims, “She don’t like the radio/She want something original.” Like its successors, “No Radio” is peppered with pop culture references that are almost as fun as picking out as jamming to the song.

Though all songs are original and fresh, the most surprising track on The Righteous Crusade is “There’s No Returning Home.” This unlikely ballad is surprisingly well-crafted in its simplicity. Though short at only two minutes and 35 seconds, it is, all clichés aside, sweet. Conway proves he can do more than just lay down beats. There’s emotion and sensitivity in his voice, making this track a stripped down and intimate portrait of the Seeds of Evolution.

The Seeds of Evolution prided themselves in their versatility when their debut album was released. The Righteous Crusade is proof that there’s still room for this diverse band to branch out. Whether it’s writing a killer ballad, sharpening their rock edges, or keeping it real with smooth sailin’ songs, The S.O.E. prove they can deliver a well-crafted album; not once, but twice.

Here’s holding out for number three. - Revue Magazine
