Indie Inside: One Soul Thrust


It's said that one can't be truly creative without it. Surprising how many bands fall short when putting that equation together. In the fickle world of music, there is something to be said about a group that doesn't kow-tow to cookie-cutter trends or cigar-chomping suits looking for the next pop flavour of the month. So if fate chooses to smile the gleaming white grin of prosperity on Edmonton, Canada's One Soul Thrust then let the justice be done. Their style -- modern yet classic rock-influenced -- lends itself to success without compromise. From pure rock to soulful blues, it's all rock and it's all executed with precision, experience and creativity… but it starts with passion.
