SOHAYLA SMITH BAND
We're on spotify and deezer, as well as itunes and apple music? If you love our music, stream, share, and download!
New York, New Yoooooork!
Hey! Have you heard? We're going to New York! We'll be playing at the Rockwood Music Hall on December 15th at 6pm, and then recording at the amazingly cool Leesta Vall Sound Recordings on the 16th in a direct-to-vinyl session! Not sure what the heck that is?
Here's how it works: They cut a 7" lathe cut vinyl record of a song of your choosing for each person that orders between now and the session date! No two records will be the same and only one copy of each will be made.
Your record will include a one-of-a-kind performance from Sohayla and the band cut specifically for you! We'll even deliver a personal message right on the record before we go into your performance - and you can watch it being recorded live on facebook! Pretty special! Quantities and time are limited, so don't sleep on this one...
Get yours while they last!
Shows & News:
What a great night! We were tucked into a country showcase that featured some incredible talents - seriously awesome! It was a pleasure to share a stage with them all. We played a mean set at The Cameron House, to a packed house at that! Thanks to the dancing folks and cheering folks! You rock! Not sure what the judges thought, but to us it felt good. Thank you to Adrian Smith, Nick Ovington, and Tyler Delaney Reed for the great performances. What a blast! Thank you to Paul (sound guy) for the great sound, and to the team at Indie Week for their ongoing support and answering 500 million questions! <3
