Evolutionary Soul is the collective musical energy of divine musical beings sent for such a time as this, and is vocally led by Saa'Shalom Soul. Resonating with soulful, funky and caress-your-heart-rhythms, Evolutionary Soul is a unique blend of earthy, organic and angelic sounds that tell stories musically. The effect results in a freeing up of the spirit, emotional cleansing, a de-stressing of the body, opening of the chakras, calming of the mind, and a stirring of the soul into wakefulness.
Why this name?
Soul energy is the essence of our being. As I AM constantly evolving into ALL that I AM, hence the name "Evolutionary Soul". Saa'Shalom is Khametic and Hebrew and translates to mean "divine wisdom of peace". Divinity, Wisdom and Peace is what we bring in the form of a musically-poetic-AND-Quiet-STORM.
Do you play live?
We play locally in the Columbia, South Carolina area and we will travel to out of town venues. Currently organizing a tour.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I feel the internet/MP3 modes of exchange allows the artist to be more in control of their financial success and independent of those corporate entities that traditionally have abused and extorted the talents of artists. Musical ability is a gift from God that should be harnessed only by the one it flows through, and shared with everyone in the midst of that artist. Artists should not have to be forced into financial slavery to be seen and heard by the masses of people. Music is God in motion and God shall not
be a slave to any man.
be a slave to any man.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would consider the possibility of signing with a major label, only under a right and balanced contractual agreement that serves all parties righteously.
Evolutionary Soul as a band has been in formulation for about a year and a half now. Saa'Shalom Soul has been in grooming for this work all of her life and is just now in the past year come into a full flowering of her gift and its direction.
