Brandon Soto Edgewater Studio Sessions

So the venture out to Sugar Land, TX to track at Edgewater Studios was great. Smooth commute, smooth stay, smooth tracking = all good. Luckily, my cold/severe as-folk allergies (that decided to show up 2 days before the trip) was pretty much gone by the time we tracked vocals; bonus.

Be sure to check out the Imagery section of the website as it will be updated soon with some studio pics.

In Writing and Pre-Production Mode

Been in writting and pre-production mode for a bit here, getting geared up for my recording session in a couple of weeks and the excitement is escalating furrr shure!

Recording in Houston this Fall!

Extremely pumped to be recording this Fall with some top professionals at Edgewater Studio/Music Group!! Took a road trip this past weekend to Houston to meet with my future producers and engineers. Their work is simply amazing! More to come in the months ahead.

Some Great Feedback for The Darkside!

Getting some crowd reviews back from listeners for 'The Darkside' and here is some of what they're saying!

  • "...definitely an alternative chart topper..."
  • "...the intensity is so rock and roll. I love it."
  • "...I love it all! Something I'd listen to everyday!"
  • "It sounds like a song from an epic movie, the vocals are sexy..."

Thank you to all that took the time to jam this tune and share your thoughts and opinions about it!

iTunes, Spotify, and Many More!

My new single is now available on numerous online retailers and streaming services, most notably iTunes, Spotify and Google Play. You will also be able to grab this single through Bandcamp as well.

This tune,'The Darkside', really has a lot to say in its message of truly understanding the world that surrounds us and who we are in it. There's no higher knowledge that one can have. Much love!

Pre-Prod Studio Work: Tracking Drums

Doing some pre-production drum tracking for a 'yet to be titled' new song. I use my KAT1 e-drum kit as a midi controller and just pipe that into my music software (Mixcraft7) and then use the drums sounds from within.

I recorded this video with my iPhone5 and Nikon camera. I'll get better at doing higher-quality videos for sure, so keep checking back. Better yet, just sign up to my Mailing List and you'll get this stuff right in your inbox! You'll also be given my 5 song EP for free! If that ain't badass, I'm not sure what is, com'on n'ow ya hear!

A Bit-O-Rehearsal Goodness

(3 of 4 members shown, left to right: Jamal, Justin, me)

A sneak peek into our rehearsal space! It's tight & just right, ha. More good stuff to come folks!!

The Band is COMPLETE!

I'm super pumped to announce that I have found a guitarist and that now completes my band!! There is a lot to be said about the group of musicians I’m working with now, but we’ll let you determine that when you come see us for yourself, live & loud. Rehearsals are already underway and the band is just as excited as I am about getting these songs and this show out there.

This really is a great time to start following me on ye ol’ social channels (facebook/twitter/youtube, all linked above in the header) to get a chance to watch things unfold from point zero. The culmination of another chapter of this project called Sounds of Sovereignty is here.

Holy Sh*t! Bassist. Spot. Filled. Yeah boi!

Yeah, you read right, I now have a bassist! I didn't expect to find this guy so fast, but luckily for me, I know a guy who knew this guy. Quick learner, check. Sweet basstone, check. Cool dude, check. Let's do this.

All I need now is a 2nd guitarist. We're almost there! Whoop! This little ol' dream of mine is getting closer and closer by the day. If you're down for the cause, please show support in any way you can. Thanks so much in advance.

Guitarist Position Still Open

Make Sure to Follow Me for Updates

With all of the craziness going on with getting my band together to take my EP to the people, the best way to stay up to date is, you guessed it, through (let's say it together now) social media.

Give me a follow!

Facebook Twitter

I've officially added a drummer!

After some great auditions for the drummer position, the spot has been filled! I snagged a fantastic San Antonio drummer, originally from Cali, that has years of studio, live shows, and touring experience under his belt. My songs instantly felt proper on this audition so the decision for me was an instant no-brainer.

Official single member introductions with biographies and pics will be posted in the near future.

I still need other members so if you're interested in playing some kick ass live shows with me or know anyone that is capable and willing, please send them here:

Be in My Band

Released my EP!!

Finally! After many, many years of being a guitarist in bands, (all great, I love all my old true bandmates) I've finally released a collection of my own songs to the public. This release came in the form of a 5-song EP titled, ‘CULMINATION’.

These songs were all written by myself, Brandon Soto, in 2014. Later in the year I started the recording process, which I also decided to take on with my own hands. It is my hopes that you will like my EP enough to download it, that you will truly let these songs entertain you, and, if you are inclined to do so, to share my music with someone who you feel will respect and enjoy it. Thank you so much for stopping by my website please sign up for my mailinglist and grab some free tunage by clicking below!

Looking for Serious Musicians - Submissions Still Open

After writing a fair share of new material and starting to focus on recording these songs for release on my debut EP, my mind started to switch gears to the live performance component of all of this, aka, my favorite f*#king thing to do on this planet; ever.

The next logical step in bringing my music ideals to fruition, is to not only keep creating my best music, but also in obtaining a badass band to play with me.
