Artist of the Month, May 1997
Soul Divine is an original rock band with strong musicianship and dynamic songwriting,
enhanced by the powerful lead vocals of Judea Eden and brought full circle by the
other Soul Sisters, Carrie Baum (guitar), Joan Martin (bass & backing vocals),
and Robin Bordow (drums). Judeas' vocals are similar to Linda Perry, of the now non-existent
Four Non-Blondes, except with a smidge more of this all-girl bands' special ingredients:
rock+funk+soul = Soul Divine.
Formed in '95 in San Francisco, they immediately had, and still have a large and
devoted following, regularly packing such clubs as the Blue Lamp, CoCo Club, Hotel
Utah, DNA Lounge,Bottom of the Hill, Paradise Lounge, Club Boomerang, The Starry
Plough and Berkeley Square.
Not a group to shy away from large outdoor venues they've performed on the main
stage at the Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco , dazzled golf fans at the Dinah Shore
Invitational in Palm Springs and got San Francisco Mayoral Candidate, Roberta Achtenbergs
election return party started off with a bang, i.e. ROCKIN!!
Soul Divine claim some influences in their music include: Heart, The Rolling Stones
and Earth Wind and Fire.
Currently they have a self-titled 6 song CD out with some tough grooves and asphalt
kicken rock tunes. Soul Divine also contributed a song on the CD Christmas Time
in San Francisco, released in 1995.
H.E.A.R is proud to honor Soul Divine as our April Artist of the Month, they have
more than earned it! Keep on rockin ladies, you've got what it takes to make it in
this Rock-n-Roll Mecca.
