Years Performed: 2018
Soars got bitten by the blues bug via a legendary source in 1988, when eh won a guitar and two tickets in a raffle to see B.B. King in concert. Meeting the iconic guitarist and singer further enhanced the young musician’s quest to learn more about the timeless power of the music. Soars started his blues recording career a decade ago with the 2008 release Back of My Mind, followed by More Bees with Honey and Full Moon Night in Memphis. Collectively, his catalog has received extensive airplay on the XM Radio programs of Little Steven (Underground Garage) and B.B. King (Bluesville); Top 50 status on the “Living Blues” charts, Blues Music Award nominations for Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist of the Year and Best Blues CD and Album of the Year accolades from the Palm Beach Post.
Soars prides himself with having one of the tightest bands on the scene, with Red Hots bassist Cleveland Frederick and longtime drummer Chris Peet. The trio has extensive touring schedule through the U.S. and Europe during the first half of 2018, in addition to appearances by popular demand at blues venues on both coastlines of South Florida, all in support of Southbound I-95.
