I first blogged about Soft Spot right at the beginning of their incarnation as a two piece. At that point in time they were still Sarah Kinlaw accompanied by Bryan Keller. That’s not the case anymore.
Soft Spot has emerged from those early stages is a fully formed band, with Bryan and Sarah equally involved in the creative process, a richer and more encompassing sound. An energy has also evolved that is constantly brewing and yet continually exuberant at the same time. With their debut album being self released in a few days and a tour of the Eastern United States almost upon them it is time for your attention.
On the road the band will be joined (as they were on record) by Jarrod Drobot, giving you even more reason to make an effort to see them play. You will be among some of the first to bare witness to something very, very special.
