2014 has been off to a great start for Sol Driven Train. We began the year with a full house and a balloon drop at the Charleston Pour House. Two weeks later we were soaking up the sun in the Virgin Islands, on our 5th annual Caribbean Tour. Mark your calendars for January 2015. It really is too fun to miss!
Since getting back from the islands, we have been riding out the cold weather in the cozy confines of Charleston Sound recording studio. A new Sol Driven Train album is in the works, and it sounds great so far. I don’t want to give too much away, but the album is a mix of new songs and unrecorded SDT classics. The collection is upbeat and danceable, and we hope to have it out this summer.
I am writing to you from the van. We are en route to Georgia for the weekend, playing shows with some other Charleston bands. Tonight, in Atlanta, we are sharing the stage with Elise Testone, who just released her debut album, I Will Not Break. Tomorrow in Athens, we add Dangermuffin to the bill, rounding out the Chucktown Trifecta! On Sunday we head to Savannah, and then Florida. In the middle of our Florida tour, we will be flying up to NYC for a very exciting audition. We will have some stiff competition, but I am excited about the international possibilities that could come from this.
