Biography

The SOULSTEPPERS formed in 1998 out of Bakersfield, California, focusing on the original skinhead sounds of reggae and soul‚ ranging from the Jamaican producers of Leslie Kong, Lee Perry, and Clancy Eccles to the choppier UK styles of Laurel Aitken and Joe The Boss Mansano.

At the time the USA (and much of the world) were in the midst of a Third Wave ska revival but founding members Mike & AJ chose to focus on the original JA & UK sounds. Between 2002 -2008 THE SOULSTEPPERS music has been released by labels Spirit of 69 (Germany), SpitShine Records (USA), LAVA Records (France), Conquering Ruler (Germany) Jump Up! Records (USA), & Rudeness Records (Japan).

The band’s latest release was a 12 song CD in 2008 on Chicago’s Jump Up! label. Fast forward to the present: Mike has recently joined the (rocksteady/reggae) band the Night Doctors and continues to gig regularly in San Diego, currently AJ has no plans on gigging anytime soon but has regular musicians to collaborate with and continues to focus on his hobby of recording/producing warm vintage sounds that the fans of early reggae are sure to enjoy.
