Acclaimed singer/songwriter, producer and composer, Brian Carter, founded Taste of Soul in mid-2008 in Medford, Oregon with a 10-piece band. The first band comprised three vocalists; small horn section and a local band that was converted from its soft rock cover roots. After a year of thrilling audiences across the state with their tremendous energy and proven ability to entertain listeners of all ages with memorable cover tunes the band started out on a journey to create its own identity and original tracks. The gentle weaving of old school R&B, soul and Motown musical blends captured the true essence of the bands existence, while preparing them for over a year long musical journey to bring out their own style of music.
This mixture of musical genres prompted the band to coin their particular style as “Rhythmic Soul”! This current group of self-determined, focused musicians share their talents as well as their stories of love, heartbreak and triumph through its lyrical sincerity and instrumental power. Now we are a completely self-contained musical group that produces, engineers, promote, manage, write, compose and perform all of our own tracks and promotional material. We are currently in the process of starting to record new material for our upcoming sophomore CD; sure to be filled with more truthful R&B! ToS is destined to become a favorite of musical enthusiasts because of their ability to be dedicated to a genre that promotes what they stand for and represent. Sophisticated, tasteful, soulful – We are Taste of Soul!
