ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Austin Texas based Soul Rock, 70's arena rock influence , guitar driven sound, vocally pronounced and lyrically directional. Blues Rock .

Soulshaker is :

Mark Campbell , Guitars , Vocals .
Was once told by Steve Marriott : " You sing just like me , but this time with a bit more Rodgers in your voice ".
Guitar styling along the lines of the Classic British bluesrockers .

Mark Salmon , Drums . The first time that guitarist MC heard him play , he was exactly a cross between Ian Paice and John Bonham . Now he sounds just like this band's drummer ;
simmered like good gumbo .


Mike Rieman , Bass . Pro chops , authentic soul lines and fluid bouncing fifths , not to mention this man can walk the neck in any style .

........ooo..OK , and .....


Tabber Millard (of Dreamtrybe ) Coy Fuller , Mike Rieman and Joel Duhon sat in on Drums and our drummer, our drummer appreciates it, because they brought a different feel that he recognizes creatively to five of the songs . Both are top notch , standing-out in their field .


Recorded at Eagle Audio, Austin by Ginger Doss ( of Dreamtrybe) .She sings on several tracks and plays some tasty keyboards on it too .

Song Descriptions :
1. The CD blasts into an energetically modern , fresh start ,a little 'Purple' in their blood,evidently .This one's about the Celestial Travellers , Semjaza and his group , who left their mark on the early planet Earth.
2. A super heavy blues reminiscent of Free and Mountain ,rocking commentary on war , what's it good for ?
3. A funky bass driven number that's about the number one primitive superstition worldwide ... the boogie man and other children's stories.
4.A tribute to the Plejarens and their beamships , featuring
actual recorded sounds mixed into the music , and a "Beamship solo" . McCartney vocal style w/ Bad Company style backing track.
5. A Tribute to some classic artists , and the number two favorite pastime worldwide ; listening to music on rainy nights. Soul/Rythmn and Blues styled . Reminiscent of Motown .It has the most wide and versatile appeal on the disc .
6. This one's dedicated to the dancers.
7.A power love ballad ,"en serpens albans" inspired.
8.A shuffled power rocker dedicated to beauty .
9.Modern southern rock and roll soul , the definitive Soulshaker signature, if there is one . Boogie bass fans love it .
10. The album closer , our moodly tribute to Peace itself , in E minor . Featuring the Salome Peace Meditation , which actually happens to be real , important , credible , functional and effective. The most important song we have ever had the honor of being a part of ." ...an ancient Lyrian phrase".

Theme note : Featuring a song which includes the actual sound of a Plejaren Beamship ( Singing Ships), and two others
(Salome Sunrises) and the title track , which were inspired by the extraordinary and real E.T. experiences of Swiss native , Billy Meier .

You just might love this CD .It's like a big flat shiny vitamin.

Mark Campbell's masterpiece work, true to himself, real rock.
Straight Ahead Human is a culmination of a life work of true rock and roll life style, not a sell out but true to the heart of what is rock and roll. The songs are real and are not only arranged intelligently but executed masterfully by an artist who has paid his dues for years and all we have to do to is slide the plastic disc into a player and turn up the volume and let the power come over you. This collection of original songs can get you motivated as they are hard driving and rocking. I applaud this stellar effort

Miguel Plaza

Great new texas rock musician!
This Cd sounds good and remember me to great british rock musicians like Steve Marriot and Paul Rodgers (in Free and Bad Company period) made by Mark, specially in the Straight Ahead Human and Mutual Destruction tunes (this last one are the best for me). On the other hand, its sounds is some progressive (and very original) and has very delicious guitar heavy riffs and fantastic drums and bass players in all of album.
The production, music lyrics, quality sound and its originality are the best!
Really congratulations for all of their band members and others people ( like piano musician colaboraion ) that made possible this album!

Jon White

First-rate effort from an obscure master
Mark Campbell and the various incarnations of Soulshaker have been laboring in relative obscurity for too long. "Straight Ahead Human" is great music that deserves a wider audience. Mark's vocals and guitar work remain in top form, while the compositions and production are better than ever. A 70's rock influence is evident throughout, but the overall feel is fresh rather than derivative.
