PRESENTED BY SHAVONE
Austin purists Soul Track Mind incubated their songs in the low-slung Eastside juke joint TC's Lounge, cultivating a raging Wednesday night scene until the dance floor literally caved in. The band are preservationists of 60's and 70's soul, resurrecting the groove with blue-skies melodies and haunting slow-dance croons on debut LP "Ghost of Soul."
Over the last two years, whirlwind front man Donovan Keith and the dapper disciples of Soul Track Mind have become synonymous with raucously entertaining live shows. From house parties to the home of the blues, Antone's Nightclub, and increasingly outside the friendly confines of the Live Music Capital of the World, Keith stirs crowds to a frenzy, begging the question "Has James Brown returned in the form of this maniacal redhead?" (Examiner). Performer Magazine raves "[he] proves that white boys do have soul...with his unbridled enthusiasm and dance moves."
To capture this frenetic live energy on Ghost of Soul, the band enlisted the help of legendary producer-engineer Stuart Sullivan who has also bestowed his golden touch on seminal releases from Pinetop Perkins and WC Clark to Eric Johnson and Sublime.
With a sold-out album release party in Austin and a string of well received appearances since, Soul Track Mind is indeed becoming a force to reckon with in the modern soul genre.
