SoulSpill, Storming Colorado's Alternative Rock And Grunge Scene
SoulSpill sounds like a mash-up of Black Sabbath and Pearl Jam
SoulSpill, a new band hailing from Colorado is poised to storm onto the alternative rock and grunge scene with their debut LP. This five piece group includes Kevin McKinnie singing lead, Eric Taysom playing rhythm guitar and signing backup, Jesse Howard on lead guitar, Josh Corbet on the bass guitar, and Joel Burns smashing the skins.
SoulSpill sounds like a mash-up of Black Sabbath and Pearl Jam. They incorporate heavy guitar riffs and deft high-speed solos into blues infused licks. "It isn't overly heavy nor overly soft," said the band. "It uses a lot of different influences that blend together." The group loves and studies the music of forerunners like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd as well as grunge pioneers, Nirvana. This influential range lends a unique sound to SoulSpill. Characteristics of all three of these bands are readily apparent in SoulSpill's music, but there is also something more, a unique tone and image. "[Our] image comes from people listening," said the group in a recent interview, "we just want them to see us in their own way, and that's the image we'll convey."
SoulSpill is full of seasoned musicians with countless gigs under their belt but the band has ceased touring to focus on the record. They have been faced with some major challenges inherent in the music business. When asked what the biggest challenge has been so far, the band agreed that, "this portion of it, trying to get our music out to an audience," has proved the most difficult, but they added: "If you love it and believe in it, never give up on it. Promote yourself with all means available and keep at it." Good advice for any up-and-coming artist. SoulSpill has also been forced to overcome bad advice. They were once told that, "if the music is good, just wait to be discovered." A sure-fire road to failure.
The group is very excited about their first record, their first impression, really on the world. The album is currently being mixed and mastered and is slated to blast off later this month or early next. SoulSpill endeavors to "leave footprints in the musical world," hope to soon play venues like Whiskey A Go Go and the Troubadour. With the musicianship and unique sound like their's, it's doubtful that they will stop there.
