When you think of Kentucky, you probably think of thoroughbred horses and a history of legendary college basketball. Or perhaps you wonder if the grass is really blue in the Bluegrass State. And when you think "bluegrass," twangy guitars, a fiddle and some bootscootin' boogie may come to mind. But Sacred Souls, a heart-of-the-bluegrass Kentucky-based band, breeds modern rock all the way.
Melodic guitars, smooth vocals, grooving bass lines and head-nodding drum licks are what fuel this four-piece engine from Lexington. The positive lyrics of their original songs are the perfect polish to this horsepowered machine.
With their debut album, "Reach You Now," Sacred Souls received an overwhelming response from local and regional radio stations as well as social media outlets. They landed the cover of 'CincyVibe' magazine in January of 2013, and in the following couple of years, they toured in support of their album. The momentum continues as they work on their second album, currently untitled, and will include their new smash single, "Stand Up."
