Biography

Funk, roots Reggae, deep Blues, & psychedelic Rock. Sol is known for his work with blues & roots pioneers of Music Maker, many whose work inspired the beginnings of rock n roll. The Freedom CD showcases Sol’s unique blend of styles and talented musicians.

Take two scoops of Funk; throw in a healthy serving of Reggae; stir in some Piedmont Blues; throw in a pinch of Latin Flavor for spice, and top it off with some Old School R&B and a dash of Hip-Hop. Shake it up and you’ve got Sol & his band. A venerable pan stew of groove.

Sol leads a collaboration of musicians of the southeast and mid-atlantic regions of the US. Sol and his band are no strangers to the road.

The band members have collectively covered much of the surface of the earth on tour, lighting up venues across North America, Europe, Australia and the Caribbean.

Sol has shared the stage with blues heavyweights such as Taj Mahal, BB King, Cootie Starks, Cool John Ferguson, John Dee Holeman, Robert Randolph, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Derek Trucks and others.

Paying homage to the greats, Sol seeks to bring Roots Music to a new generation of listeners.

The CD release, Freedom, features the core musical unit of Sol on guitar and vocals, King George on drums, and Jake Dempsey on bass. Also guest appearances by Tim Smith (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Hobex, and the Countdown Quartet), as well as members of VA’s reggae groups, the Seed, and the Alliens. With these special guests, the new album moves from greasy delta grooves to deep reggae, and from stanky funk to soulful R&B.
