Vinyl Soup is the premiere psychedelic rock band from Nashville, TN. Their sound falls somewhere between 70’s British, progressive rock, folk rock, and the American jam band sound of the 90’s to the present day. Their ethos includes an eclectic blend of influences ranging from rock, blues, folk, and jazz, to Caribbean and world sounds. Unlike many of the musically disposable jam bands on the current scene, there is a strong emphasis on deeply empathetic and memorable compositions, with an occasional knowing wink to the listener, lest things get too serious. As Lexington, KY Newspaper North of Center points out in an article regarding a Vinyl Soup performance in October 2010: this is a songwriter’s Jam band. Fans of Vinyl Soup’s concert performances also cite the band’s fearless extended improvisations and free-wheeling musicianship as unique strengths of their live shows.

Founding member, songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Andrew Hooker grew up in West Point, Mississippi, hometown of blues legend Howlin’ Wolf and 90’s Alternative Rock band, Blind Melon. After earning a music degree in California, Hooker returned to the tradition-steeped musical environs of Nashville, Tennessee where he formed Vinyl Soup in 2003.
