shoeless soul / Bio

shoeless soul is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Rene Schlegel. During one of Rene’s performances at a local open mic, Sladjan Vidic grabbed the sticks and sat behind the drum set to accompany him. The harmonious connection was clear from the start. Soon the two began performing as an acoustic duo, but eventually felt the sound needed to be fuller. The sound needed that low end.
Carey Walter temporarily joined the band, after his departure a replacement for the "low end" was needed.It didn't take long and a perfect fit was found with Justin Pearl Morakis. Justin's masterful skills and raw energy brought a new element to the band and a musical journey began..
Their sound has been described as feel-good pop-fusion, jazzy-reggae jam or more recently “Prozac-Pop”. The bending of genres infused with tasteful jams and catchy chorus lines gives shoeless soul a tone that has yet to be replicated.
Their camaraderie is undeniable and evident in the playful musical banter and infectious smiles they display on stage.
With Rene’s jazzy chords and positive lyrics, Sladjan’s sweet taste for rhythms and Justin’s masterful bass lines shoeless soul’s music will definitely make you think, feel a sense of wonderment and dance barefoot into the night.
