Straight Ahead Human
Austin Texas based Soul Rock, 70's arena rock influence, guitar driven sound, vocally pronounced and lyrically directional. Blues Rock . Soulshaker is : Mark Campbell, Guitars, Vocals . Was once told by Steve Marriott : ' You sing just like me, but this time with a bit more Rodgers in your voice '. Guitar styling along the lines of the Classic British bluesrockers . Mark Salmon, Drums . The first time that guitarist MC heard him play, he was exactly a cross between Ian Paice and John Bonham . Now he sounds just like this band's drummer ; simmered like good gumbo . Mike Rieman, Bass . Pro chops, authentic soul lines and fluid bouncing fifths, not to mention this man can walk the neck in any style . ........ooo..OK, and ..... Tabber Millard (of Dreamtrybe ) Coy Fuller, Mike Rieman and Joel Duhon sat in on Drums and our drummer, our drummer appreciates it, because they brought a different feel that he recognizes creatively to five of the songs . Both are top notch, standing-out in their field . Recorded at Eagle Audio, Austin by Ginger Doss ( of Dreamtrybe) .She sings on several tracks and plays some tasty keyboards on it too . Song Descriptions : 1.
