Our first gig back from a 3 month hiatus spent finishing up an album and we got to open for a completely stacked lineup of some of the best musicians to grace the Allman Brothers, Tower of Power, Average White Band, and more! Thanks to Steve Gaspár and his Hollywood All-Stars for sharing a phenomenal show with us. And thanks to Jonathan Schneider for the killer photography.
Relative Souls had a longgggggg 2013 full of shows, new friends, and good vibes. It is hard to describe how amazing this year has been for the band. How can we best tell you about our year, the adversity and the accomplishments, in one simple post? I don’t know, but I know if we saw you at all this summer, well you just know. It was a great year that words cannot begin to describe. But here’s our Year in Review 2013

We had a great last run to finish off the year. We had an amazing time playing with Twiddle at the Fairfield Theater Company, with Shakedown at Toads Place, and with The Breakfast at The Spot in Rhode Island. Saw a lot of new faces dancing in the crowd!
We’d also like to announce our upcoming full-length album is nearly complete! The date kept getting farther away, but we really wanted to make sure the album captures the excitement of our live shows!
The band is taking a quick break from touring so we can focus on finishing the album and develop our new songs in progress, but we’ll be back soon!
Keep on Groovin!
