MOHAVISOUL? This talented group of musicians came together in 2012 to create a new sound in Americana music with a mix of originals and unique covers. Mark Miller and Randy Hanson met at the San Diego Songwriters MeetUp and collaborated on several songs for Cathryn Beeks' San Diego local music gathering called ?The Game?. With the addition of Warren Ovadia on violin for a two song performance at the Go Lounge in December 2011, it was clear that something was cooking as the packed house went wild.
Attempting to create a new, soulful sound rooted in Folk and Bluegrass music, the trio continued experimenting during the Winter and Spring of 2012. After contributing to the 24-hour Film Festival, KPRI LocalGrooves at the House of Blues and performing numerous shows, the group encountered their final members (Orion Boucher, upright bass and Jason Weiss, banjo) at the first San Diego Songwriters showcase at Rebecca's Coffee House in South Park. The following summer was spent working on new material and playing a residency at the Office Bar in North Park. Their first recording, called ?Every Second?, was produced by Mannequinn Variety Records' Jake Skolnick and released in January, 2013. The group continues to build on its original repertoire and is pushing boundaries, performing their brand of contemporary bluegrass with soul at more and more venues and another EP coming in summer 2013. MohaviSoul blends a variety of sounds that include gypsy jazz, folk, Americana storytelling, soulful ballads, and contemporary bluegrass to yield a contagious mix of styles similar to Newgrass Revival, The Steel Drivers, Mumford and Sons, Trampled by Turtles, Old Crow Medicine Show, Hot Rize, Yonder Mountain String Band, the Seldom Scene, and the Sam Bush Band.
