Originally formed in late 2003, Soul Lip quickly began winning over crowds with their emotionally intense brand of hook-laden heavy alternative rock. The core of the band consists of a trio of incredibly talented musicians and songwriters in brothers Mike and Garrett Clagett (lead guitar and drums, respectively) and their lifelong friend Ben Pierce (guitars). After the departure of their original bassist in early 2004, talented bassist Jean Finstad joined the group and solidified the band's powerful rhythm section..... When the band parted ways with their initial lead singer, Ryan James stepped in, bringing with him a stong voice and dynamic range. Together with their new bandmates, the original trio has completed their upcoming debut album 'Tainted,' released in may 2006. Since they started performing live, the newly completed line-up has drawn widespread acclaim from venue operators, fans, and fellow musicians. With an ever-expanding fanbase and an intense live show, Soul Lip appears to be primed and ready for major success. This is a band with shows you surely don't want to miss.
