Making listeners slap themselves black and blue out of pure eargasmic joy since your momma was born.

Funky Rock Grooves

Some songs are from the studio, a few are just a microphone set up in a garage during a rehearsal, They're all free to download, so download away!

We play alot of live shows in the Southern California area, so make sure to check us out, if you can't, we also regurarly do interviews and specials on internet radio, so check out our "live events" page to se when.
We also give out free stuff to people on our mailing list, so make sure to sign it!

Why this name?
It was the only thing we could agree on. Steve and Brett wanted Side of the River after Riverside CA. And Jeff Moody, the original drummer wanted Pacifisoul. So we combined them. But the rest of the guys will tell you it's because it's the soul of the Santa Ana River, but that's a lie. We're not that deep.
Do you play live?
Yes we play shows everywhere. We have some kind of incredible musical chemistry, which enables us to jam really well. We have a different show every time! Like ESP or something. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please send an email to webmaster@souloftheriver.com or go here: http://www.souloftheriver.com/contactme.html
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gets people to listen to your stuff, that otherwise would have to get played on the radio. And the way the radio is these days with the short playlists, that would never happen.
It gives more ability to Do It Yourself, which will revolutionize music once again.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yeah,we would just watch our asses as much as possible. They say there's no such thing as a good record contract. And we kind of believe that. But yeah, like evreyone else, we would sell out and sign a major label deal if it was ok. But we would probably rather do it on our own, or sign to an indie. We have no desire for limos or all that crap, we just want to be able to make a living at music. Driving a used Hyundai is fine with us, as long as we're making a living doing what we love.
Band History:
Created around freestyle songwriting sessions around a fire pit, Soul of the River was formed in June 2002. Out of Southern California, Soul of the River creates an unusual blend of songs that immediately grab the listener. Steve Hansen's abstract yet funky basslines take a lead voice in the music and effectively compliment the overall song instead of coming off as too strange and abrasive. Rene Felix has the unique blend of funky, shuffle drumming style, with the punch of John Bonham and the thunder of Steward Copeland, that creates a one of a kind sound that makes the most avid hip hop or country listener rock out and get down. Brett Dawson, brings a melodic vocal, and groove based guitar style that ranges from laid back funk to raging intensity. This unique blend of styles playing great original songs guaranteed to make even the harshest critic love, is the perfect formula to create the eargasmic sound of Soul of the River.
