The solid base of this band was laid during the preparation for, and recording of their debut album “Life On The Edge”. Under guidance of technician Richard Soethoudt, 13 songs were recorded and mixed in barely 5 days.
Singer/songwriter Charley Cruz handed the songs (some with, some without text) to bass player DJ Ciggaar who completed the lyrics. Drummer Ron Cruz and guitarist Jerry Brown were added to the writing duo, and The Lost Souls were complete.
The “Souls” write short, melodious countrybluespopsongs with a catchy hookline in the rich “Americana” genre. On their inspired and intuitive search within this idiom, varying from Hank Williams to Calexico, it’s easy to get lost.
However, The Lost Souls always land on their feet…Where? On the stage!
