A little history of Travelin' Soul:

Travelin' Soul is a collaboration of friends that came together for the love of music and with a desire to create original songs. Their sound is rich in the American Roots tradition drawing influences from varied backgrounds. Their songwriting is built around thoughtful and emotional lyrics that come to life with instantly likable lead guitar riffs and a soulful rhythm section. Their original music cuts a swathe of territory ranging from the Eagles to the Beatles, by way of roots-rock and country greats like Neil Young, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and The Band. They fuse country, blues, rock and roll, folk, and bluegrass into their eclectic sound.

At the core of Travelin' Soul are the formidable singer songwriters Archie Hughes and Dale Brock. Their collaboration of songwriting is very unique as shown by Travelin' Soul's debut album "In Our Lives". Archie and Dales genuine vocals belt out honest, bare-your-soul lyrics with passion and panache. Every song is well crafted and intelligently written. Dale's lyrics tell stories that brim with nostalgia, longing, and reflect on his life with wisdom and lessons learned. His music reflects a wide range of life's experiences with unusual clarity and authority. Archies songs speak of the desire and passion for love and life, relationships, and the thrill and sadness from people he has met that have affected his personal life. He understands that when trouble happens, there will always be the redemptive power of music.

Rounding out Travelin' Soul's dynamic sound is the rhythm section of Matt Petruska on bass and Lawrence Gant on drums. You can feel the bass from Matt keeping the low tones while Lawrence keeps a steady beat. On lead guitar is the always dangerous Brian Thrall.
