Our Story

Soul Deep is a culmination of 5 professional, seasoned musicians who have come together from various bands in the Indianapolis Indiana area. With years of experience and expertise, the talents of these musicians have merged into a tight, soulful, exciting, and fun musical experience. The history and impressive musical credits of each member are long, from concerts, touring, studio work, to recording and performing with major artists. 
We feel diversity and live music performance (not taped mp3 arrangements) are essential to a better listening and entertaining experience.
