Independent band, Sol Driven Train, has recorded ten original songs. Funds are needed to master, manufacture, and promote the album.

      Sol Driven Train began as a group of friends and family coming together to create sound and share the joy of music.  Through the course of 11 years and over 1,000 live shows, this spirit still guides the band through the rocky road of the music industry.  The stages have grown from bedrooms to theaters, the amps have gotten louder, the lineup has changed, and the crowds have multiplied, but the sense of brotherhood, mutual support, and musical independence within the band has strengthened.  Through hard work and a commitment to live performance, the band’s reputation and collective musical ability has grown with every season.  Nine independent releases including two albums for children, a live concert DVD, a live CD, four full-length studio albums, and last summer’s popular “Watermelon” EP document the band’s winding musical development. 

     The band is very excited about their next full length release, a collection of ten songs, titled “Underdog.”  Recorded at Charleston Sound during the same sessions that produced “Watermelon,” this new release showcases a mature sense of songcraft, deft musical eclecticism, and guest performances by the band’s expanding musical family.  In order to release this project to the world, the band needs to raise funds.  We are reaching out to our listeners to partner with us on this.  It will take money to master the recording, design artwork, print the cd’s and vinyl records, create a music video, and promote the record to radio, internet, and print media.  These are the tasks that a record label generally handles, but we want YOU to be our label.  THANKS!
