The Howlin’ Souls
New York, NY – Rock n’ Roll outfit, The Howlin’ Souls have just released their self-titled debut EP, a collection of high-energy tracks that perfectly mirror the era of 70’s rock. The EP is a genius balance of classic rock and blues-rock, perfectly paired with charismatic lyrics. These guys sure know how to deliver gorgeous music. My favourite track is Anyway You Take It: beautiful, beautiful guitar works with infectious bass tones and Pete's distinctive rock vocals just make the song feel so timeless and exciting. Those guitar solos are amazing! Love, love it! Stream the EP below!

Speaking about the EP, lead singer Pete Smith says,
For our debut, we wanted to put out an up-tempo Rock n’ Roll EP that would give the listener a good idea about who we are. The songs are all based on our personal experiences and people we’ve known while living in NYC. It encapsulates the years we spent as struggling musicians there.

Co-produced by longtime engineer, Fritz Lang (CBGB’s, The Record Plant NYC, Sigma NYC), The Howlin’ Souls is a unique project that pays homage to rock music of the past while still delivering a fresh sound. The band is heavily influenced by rock legends such as The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, and Howlin’ Wolf as well as the Motown sound.

Forming in downtown Manhattan in 2012, The Howlin’ Souls consists of Smith (vocals, guitar), Scott Sepe (guitar), Robbie Sokolowsky (bass) and Nate Lang (drums). Coming from different backgrounds, each member adds their unique touch to the music. Both Smith and Sokolowsky have experience in film and produce all of the band’s music videos. Lang has an acting background and was cast as Carl Tanner in the Oscar-winning movie, Whiplash. Lang also worked with co-star Miles Teller as his real life drum coach for the film.

Their collective influence and admiration of classic rock, blues and Motown shape the nostalgic, but fresh and engaging sound that encompasses The Howlin’ Souls. Download the EP on digital music outlets and keep up with the band by visiting
