Souljam

While we prefer to let our music do the talking, we do tend to wear some of our influences on our sleeve; most notably The Grateful Dead, Phish, and Tedeschi Trucks Band. Anna sings most of the lead vocals while John sings backup, but on some tunes that role is reversed. For the most part, Anna plays acoustic guitar and John plays electric with Will on bass, Patrick on drums and Brandon on percussion. Since most of our influences had/have different instrumentation, we are pushed to be creative in how we arrange songs and use our instruments.

When you come to see us, expect lots of interplay between the band members. Expect sweet vocals from Anna and mutually supportive ensemble playing from all, but also inspired and sometimes lengthy solos from all band members. Especially when we play covers, we pay homage to our musical heroes but eschew slavish imitation. Our oldest member is over thirty years the elder of our youngest. Because of that, we relate to music and other cultural reference points from a cross-generational perspective.

Most importantly, not only do we love playing music that we all enjoy, but we love playing music with each other. That gratitude and pure joy comes through in our sound and our vibe.
