The Only Thing We Know How To Sing
Soul Butter was formed in the small town of Lander, Wyoming by Joshua Mireles and Sean Floody. Pulling their inspiration from a wide field of music, they quickly created a unique and pure sound that refused to be pigeon-holed. After the arrival of Brendan Floody as lead vocalist, the band started touring around Lander and set to work on their first release.
Since the release of their debut album, Half the Things We Wrote, Soul Butter has expanded their lineup to include multi-instrumentalist and producer, Thomas Mireles, as well as bassist, Dominic Mireles. With this addition, Soul Butter has truly become a family band, with Thomas and Dominic, joining their brother Joshua and the Floody brothers, Brendan and Sean.
Soul Butter achieves a fuller, richer, and more mature sound for their sophomore release, Front Porch Soul. For this album, they combine poetic verse with a sound that is reminiscent of Appalachian Folk, and early Muscle Shoals. Front Porch Soul's witty lyrics, from the mouth of songwriter Joshua Mireles, get down to the gritty, unfiltered realities of blue-collar life. From the upbeat first track, That's The Way It Goes, to the final title track, Front Porch Soul, the listener is taken on a journey through life in a small town that, for all of its faults, ultimately provides solace on the front porch with good songs and good people.
NOTE FROM THE ARTIST: "This album is best enjoyed on the porch with a glass of whiskey, preferably (cheap) bourbon, on ice."
