The emergence of roots music in early America, from its European and African origins through its development over the decades, helped to produce such homegrown music genres as country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues… including the powerful & influential music of the African-American spirituals, gospel, sacred music, gospel blues, & bluegrass gospel music. The suburban Philly based band, Savior Soul, draws its influences from these musical roots and invites their audiences on board for a musical & spiritual journey that will have them stomping their feet and clapping their hands in jubilation!

Since the original meeting between Savior Soul drummer, Mark Beecher (Drexel University Music Professor, & GRAMMY nominee/member) and Rick Shryock, (renowned fiddler for numerous Philadelphia/Tri-State bluegrass bands), the band has grown to 9 members with an ever-increasing repertoire. Savior Soul combines the traditional with the contemporary, into a unique blend of Spirit-filled Americana Music, by means of voice, guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, acoustic bass, & drums. “The music of our band, Savior Soul, gets the listeners past any pretentiousness and into their hearts,” says Beecher. “It’s simply an honest expression of what we are feeling in our music, rather than any forced statement or declaration. It’s an uplifting message of hope & redemption.” The band has just released its latest CD, “Cast Your Bread” - which was just included in the 1st Round Ballots for the 57th GRAMMY Awards!
