Listen to EXCLUSIVE: "Bless Your Children"

off the new record "LIGHTNING KID".

We are so excited to present our new band Dharmasoul, and share our very first record "Lightning Kid" with you all. We strove to bring improvisational energy to the world of each song; and hope that you can experience something new and exciting with each listen. We have been playing music together off and on for the past 10 years, and it is a dream come true to have created this musical partnership that is Dharmasoul.

The album was recorded and mixed in summer and early fall of 2017 at Verdant Studios in Athens, VT by Pete Weiss, and mastered by Joe Gastwirt. We brought in our dear friends Matt Murphy (Bass), Brendan Moore (Keyboards), Laurence Scudder (Viola) to help us weave the sonic fabric of this record. Also, we were lucky enough to have legendary Muscle Shoals backup singers Cindy Walker and Marie Lewey contribute their amazing vocal cords to a few tracks on the album, with our friend John Gifford III (Engineer) at FAME Studios.

We have so many influences between the two of us, however the ones that seemed to inspire the album the most are: The Meters, Stevie Wonder, Buddy Guy, D'Angelo, Allman Brothers, Otis Redding, and Bob Dylan.

With your support, we will be able to afford publicity (which is not cheap!), manufacturing, album artwork, legal fees, and final mastering costs.

We wish you a wild and wonderful Holiday season and New Year. We hope that our album "Lightning Kid" will become a friend to you as it has to us on your life journey.

Thank you so much for considering and supporting us.

We hope to see you on the road. 2018 tour dates TBA.

Love,

Kevin & Jonah
