The Soft White Sixties
San Francisco's The Soft White Sixties are a hard-driving, original rock and roll band that delivers R&B grooves and pop hooks with the transformative power of raw soul.
Named as one of Paste Magazine’s “Top 25 Shows at SXSW 2013″, The Soft White Sixties are increasingly gaining recognition for their infectious live performance. Since 2010 they have been perfecting their sound, appropriately dubbed Working Class Soul – a gritty edge to modern pop. They mix their vast influences into a hard-hitting and confident force reminiscent of classic R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll but with a contemporary sensibility. Octavio Genera (vocals), Aaron Eisenberg (guitar/keys), Ryan Noble (bass), and Joey Bustos (drums) combine soulful melodies, deep grooves, and fuzzed-out hooks to form a completely distinct sound.
An anticipated forthcoming album titled “Get Right.” is due out in the near future. Produced by Jim Greer (known for his recent work on Foster the People’s platinum-selling album, Torches), the new record offers a sonic diary of the band’s last two years: an organic collection of soul-driven anthems, heart-felt choruses, sticky grooves, and clever arrangements. Like the object after which The Soft White Sixties are named, this band shines.
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!” -Jk
Japhys Descent is an idea that we are here to burn as bright as possible, be a beacon to others and not be afraid to pour every ounce of energy into something you love. Our music is an extension of our desire to live every moment with that same spark and produce music to burn brightly to. We invite you to descend with us, love with us, listen with us and dive head first into the mystery. Enjoy the music and we will see you around...
