Sol is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band Funk Root create a unique blend of Southern fried rock, blues, reggae, and way back yonder funk, all delivered with deep soul, performing tasty original tunes and bluesy, greasy jams. Sol & Funk Root have toured across the east coast U.S. at many premier festivals and venues and have been on bills with Jon Cleary, Soulive, The Wood Brothers, Robert Randolph, Jackie Greene, and more.
Sol & Funk Root's latest CD release "Freedom" includes Sol on guitar and vocals with band members drummer King George (Corey Harris, Jah Works), bassist Jake D, and saxophonist Tim Smith (Hobex, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Countdown Quartet), and special appearances by members of reggae jam groups the Seed, and the Alliens.
