"From the Storm to the Sun" is the follow-up to Soulganic's critically-acclaimed debut "All Directions Forward."
"From the Storm to the Sun" consists of 11 new and original songs, and was constructed in true independent musician fashion: written, composed, arranged, performed, produced, engineered, recorded and mixed by Soulganic, with additional tracking and mastering by Charlotte-based independent music veteran Joe Kuhlmann, who also served as the band's Creative Consultant.
Crafting the album over nearly two years, Soulganic pushed themselves to new heights as writers and performers. "From the Storm to the Sun" takes the raw energy of Soulganic's reputable live performances and tempers it with intimate and layered arrangements.
The mood is noticeably darker and heavier from their debut, and the lyrical concepts cover a range of subjects. "Temporary Thrill" addresses addiction from the addicts point of view. "Melt Away" is a scathing commentary on infidelity. "How Does it Feel (Blood Money)" brings a deeply spiritual and earthy commentary on the blood diamond trade. "Forgotten Ones" is a hard-edged rocker railing against class antagonism. "Let Me Go" wraps a complex arrangement around a narrative on the effects of absentee fathers.
"From the Storm to the Sun" is the evolution of Funky Indie Soul.
