The Soft White Sixties are shining brightly in 2013.
The classic R&B and rock ’n roll band performed at Austin’s South-By-Southwest Festival, Bob Weir’s TRI studios and San Francisco’s Independent.
Formed in 2010, the Soft White Sixties are Octavio Genera, vocals, Aaron Eisenberg, fuzzy guitar and keys, Ryan Noble, bass and Joey Bustos, drums. The band has no problem being labeled “working class soul.”
The band sold out the Independent last month for its album release performance. “Get Right” was produced by Jim Greer, known for his work on Foster the People’s platinum-selling album, “Torches.” Press material say the new record offers a sonic diary of the band’s last two years: an organic collection of soul-driven anthems, heart-felt choruses, sticky grooves, and clever arrangements.
Soft White Sixites was named as one of Paste Magazine’s Top 25 Shows at SXSW 2013.
