Lafayette's Music Room says
When a legendary record producer offers you free recording time in the studio where some of the greatest songs in the world were created, there’s only one appropriate response: You drop everything and go.

That’s what Soul Track Mind did when Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell, son of Hi Records producer Willie Mitchell, offered to record the band after serving as a judge for the 2014 Louisiana Music Prize contest. That wasn’t even part of the prize, which they won. (Their winnings — $5,000 and recording time at renowned drummer/producer Brady Blade’s Blade Studios in Shreveport, La. —were further icing.)

Soul Track Mind eagerly trooped to Memphis’ Royal Studios to work in the same space where Al Green and others recorded so many classics — and where the latest Record of the Year Grammy winner, “Uptown Funk,” was born. Soul Track Mind singer/songwriter Donovan Keith, co-founding guitarist Jonathon Zemek and their bandmates came up with “Generation Song,” a track that signals the band’s evolution toward a distinctive blend of rock, pop and R&B.

Now their bringing the live performance of this album back to Memphis on the stage of Lafayette's Music Room Saturday night, April 2nd.

They’re still working with Mitchell and will have much more coming soon, but couldn’t wait any longer to present this taste. The song’s tempo and synth sounds carry roots in disco and new wave, but the vibe is completely current, while showcasing Keith’s expressive vocals via lyrics that convey what he describes as “the cycle of humanity.”

"A CULTURAL EXCLAMATION POINT ABOUT AMERICAN MUSIC... THEY COME OUT OF A GRITTY MELTING POT THAT INCLUDES SEASONINGS FROM BOOKER T AND THE MGS, OTIS REDDING, BILLY PRESTON, THE LATER WORKS OF RAY CHARLES, AND MORE CONTEMPORARY INFLUENCES LIKE THE BLACK KEYS AND JOHN LEGEND." - JIM MOORE, Huffington Post

The band’s sound may be evolving, but their mission to make people move — and think — will never change.
