Who is Vine of Souls?
Using a potent blend of live instrumentation and sampled beats, Vine is an altogether intriguing mix of retro rock and future groove.
"Ever put on an album where you find yourself humming something from nearly every tune? That's what will happen with the tightly rocking band. Superb songs and production" -SPINS Magazine
"A great CDas good as anything on the Billboard charts right now!" -Music Biz Magazine
"If there's a formula for new rock, Laguna Beach rockers Vine may have it. The trio's debut album, "3 Days In The Desert", mixes Lenny Kravitz retro rock funk, turntablism of Sugar Ray and a whole world of eclectic music into the 14 songs of 3 Days." -Andrew Asch, AOL Digital Cities Music Editor
Vine has been creeping up from the rotting rainforest vegetation for years. The band started at Berkeley house parties and on turntables and tape decks in San Francisco last millenium. Singer/songwriter Patrick Thompson and DJ/Vocalist Greg Gil have been mixing up strange brews of rock, funk, hip hop, dub and pop since then.
Y2K saw the successful release of their 9th collection of cuts- the aptly-title "9" EP. Also in 2000, guitarist Jay Gore joined the band during the creation of Vines first full-length record.
"Three Days in the Desert" was recorded at Vine Central in Laguna Beach, CA, and Eleven Studios in Glendale, CA. Vine's mission is write and record good songs. Thanks and praise to Mike Eckart for the sounds, ears, and funky plug-ins.
We play in the LA & Orange County area.
