Sol Driven Train
During the spring of 2000, a close circle of friends and family began gathering in college apartments downtown Charleston to create sound and share in the joy of music. Through the course of over 12 years and over 1,000 live shows, this same spirit still guides Sol Driven Train through the rocky road of the music industry. The venues have grown from bedrooms to festival stages, the amps have gotten louder, the lineup has evolved, 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. Named 2011’s “Rock Band of the Year” by the Charleston City Paper, and “On the Verge” by Relix Magazine in January 2012, Sol Driven Train is an independent band breaking into the national spotlight. Nine independent releases including two critically-acclaimed albums for children, a live concert DVD, a live album, four full-length studio albums, and last summer’s popular “Watermelon” EP document the band’s winding musical development. The band’s loyal fans recently funded the release ofSol Driven Train’s upcoming full-length album, Underdog, due out in 2013.
Mindstream is the musical vision of Boston based producer and bassist Chris Mack. Chris began experimenting with electronic music in Spring 2011 when by playing the bass guitar while DJing parties. Shortly after, Chris began producing original beats and improvising with them live on the bass and keyboard, and Mindstream was born. Mindstream music blends hard-hitting dance beats and atmospheric soundscapes with funk, rock, and blues oriented instrumental improvisation, creating a unique atmosphere that shares the sensibilities of both jam bands and electronic dance music. Mindstream live is a positive and psychedelic, yet heavy and industrial, constantly evolving dance party.
