Our Story

We are a fairly new musical band made up of 7 musicians that compose, record and perform our own music.

The EXTREMELY special thing about this band is that we all come from different musical backgrounds. And this… makes for some very interesting music.

We play all genres.

Jazz, blues, pop, folk, soul, funk, r&b, gospel and more.

The other amazing thing about this band is we started as friends first!

We actually all were hired together to play at a church called “The Table.”

We would play all sorts of music at this church, from Prince, to The Beatles, to jazz and more.

After 5 years of playing together inside the church, Brenden Lowe, the music director got the brilliant idea of saying, “Hey! We sound great together. Why don’t we form our OWN band outside of church to write our OWN music.”

And that’s exactly what we did.

What does Solabel mean exactly?

You may be curious about how we came to the name SOLABEL.

Our name for the band comes from a number of different things.

In no particular order, the first being centered around hope, love, and inspiration, and we thought light represented all of that so we wanted to capture the word light in the name.

To do this we started with the word “Sun”, and this turned to “Solar” which eventually turned to “Sol” which is the Spanish word for sun.

The second characteristic we wanted to capture in our name was beauty.

This came easy to us through the French word for beauty which is “belle”.

The third characteristic we wanted was sound and music, because we’re a band.

So we shortened the word belle, to bel which was a play off the English word bell, which resembles sound.

So we first had “Solbel”

But that didn’t roll off the tongue quite right so we added the “a” in between because it created “so” and “la” which are musical references to notes.

SOLABEL

A made up word which essentially is defined by us as “The beauty of light and sound.” Or in other words…the beauty of hope, love and music.

What We Need...

Unfortunately our funding has been depleted and we’re in need of some support for the final stages of the album.

Mixing, and mastering.

So far, we’ve gone with the best of the best through out this entire album process.

Mixing & mastering are the final stages of our album and we want to make sure the engineer’s we hire to do this are also the best of the best.

That is why we have selected Bryan Cook as our mixing engineer.

He as mixed music for bands such as U2, Katy Perry, One Republic, Switchfoot, Aloe Blacc Feat J.I.D, Jeff Goldblum, and the list goes on and on.

The final mixing and mastering done by Bryan Cook will be a little over 10k after taxes. All funds donated to this campaign will go towards mixing and mastering.

If we have anything left over, that will go towards renting a theater in Sacramento for our album release concert.

We’d love your help in crossing the finish line with our debut album and to be apart of our very first project.

What You Get...

There are many ways to get involved and all of them include your very own signed hard copy CD of our debut album after it is finished.

Some of the other tiers include

  • Free ticket to our album release concert,
  • Credits in the liner notes of the album
  • Personalized video of Solabel performing your favorite song
  • Personally composed song by Solabel just for you with your own recording, lyrics, and sheet music

The Impact

Every member of Solabel wrote down their personal values and intention for the group.

Here are our values and representation within the world.

  • To bring hope to people’s lives
  • To spread joy among the world
  • To inspire people to have inner and out searches for love
  • To add joy to people lives
  • To be our authentic selves in everything we do
  • Bring peace to the world

We strongly believe our music will represent all the values above and will do wonders for changing the world.

Our Music...

In the summer of 2021 we went on a 3 day writing retreat. In the span of this 3 days we wrote 8 new songs which have all now been recorded and edited.

We also just got back from our second writing retreat in July of 2022 and within the same 3 day span wrote 11 NEW SONGS! 

Needless to say, creativity and music is our jam. And we can’t stop, won’t stop.

Risks & Challenges

The timeline for us is the most difficult obstacle we’ll face. Everything is so fluid so it’s hard to nail down when things will move along.

We’ve already begun communicating with the mixing and mastering engineer we’re certain we would like to use.

We’ve also confirmed the venue for our album release concert as well.

The unknowns are how much money we will receive from this Kickstarter and how fast the mixing engineer will be able to complete the work.

We’ve planned far enough out in advance that we’re confident everything will come together to work.
