Shooting Music Videos and Heading South!!!

IMG950803Thanks to Hot Wheels skating rink, the Lowcountry HighRollers, David Keller, Graham Whorley and all the extras  for making our video shoot such a success.  We had a blast letting it all hang out on skates for the day.  Keep an eye peeled for the release of this epic skate flick.  It will be sure to pack some surprises along with a brand new tune from our upcoming new album!  The so far untitled album is being mixed at Charleston Sound as I type!

We hit 95 south next week on our way to Paradise!  Yes the one and only Paradise Inn located on the white sands on Pensacola Beach.  A three night stand!  Perfect for a getaway.  Blow off what you have to do and come rock in Paradise with us!  Bushwackers?

We will stay in Mississippi and Louisiana through the weekend with shows listed below!

P and H Custom Sea KayaksThe East Coast Paddlesports & Outdoor Festival and P&H Custom Sea Kayaks are proud to present Sol Driven Train on Friday, April 11. Sol Driven Train’s music weaves through genres like a Tom Robbins paragraph. The band’s sonic schizophrenia absorbs American influences like Jon Prine and Paul Simon, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms into honest songs about life, love, loss, and longjohns. The 5-piece band, based right here in Charleston, features 4 rotating lead vocalists and multi-instrumental talent spread across horns, strings, and percussion.

  • When: Friday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Where: James Island County Park
  • Admission: $10 per person (ages 13+) or FREE for all East Coast Paddlesports & Outdoor Festival registrants and kids 12 and under.

2014 Starts out with a Bang!

Greetings!

2014 has been off to a great start for Sol Driven Train. We began the year with a full house and a balloon drop at the Charleston Pour House. Two weeks later we were soaking up the sun in the Virgin Islands, on our 5th annual Caribbean Tour. Mark your calendars for January 2015. It really is too fun to miss!

Since getting back from the islands, we have been riding out the cold weather in the cozy confines of Charleston Sound recording studio. A new Sol Driven Train album is in the works, and it sounds great so far. I don’t want to give too much away, but the album is a mix of new songs and unrecorded SDT classics. The collection is upbeat and danceable, and we hope to have it out this summer.

I am writing to you from the van. We are en route to Georgia for the weekend, playing shows with some other Charleston bands. Tonight, in Atlanta, we are sharing the stage with Elise Testone, who just released her debut album, I Will Not Break. Tomorrow in Athens, we add Dangermuffin to the bill, rounding out the Chucktown Trifecta! On Sunday we head to Savannah, and then Florida. In the middle of our Florida tour, we will be flying up to NYC for a very exciting audition. We will have some stiff competition, but I am excited about the international possibilities that could come from this.

Onward!
