Vinyl Soup is the premiere Psychedelic Rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. Their sound falls somewhere between 70’s British, Progressive Rock, Folk Rock, and the American Jam band sound of the 90’s to the present day. Their ethos includes an eclectic blend of influences ranging from Rock, Blues, Folk, Pop, and Jazz, to Caribbean and World sounds. Unlike many of the musically disposable jam bands on the current scene, there is a strong emphasis on deeply empathetic and memorable compositions with an occasional knowing wink to the listener, lest things get too serious. As Lexington, Kentucky Newspaper North of Center points out in an article regarding a Vinyl Soup performance in October 2010, this is a songwriter’s Jam band. Fans of Vinyl Soup’s concert performances also cite the band’s fearless extended improvisations and free-wheeling musicianship as unique strengths of their live shows.
Vinyl Soup’s current album, ‘The Beacon Within’ is now being spun on over 50 college and AAA radio stations across the USA. They are currently in Heavy and Medium rotation on 12 stations. On August 26, 2013 Vinyl Soup charted at #12 on the jambands.com/Relix top 30 radio charts, joining some of the biggest names in the business like Tedeschi/Trucks, Phish, Buddy Guy, and John Fogerty! In addition to charting on radio, ‘The Beacon Within’ has also received national and international acclaim!
“Combining kicky Southern rock and rhythm & blues with progressive jam-band sensibilities, these folks deliver music with brains as well as brawn.”

“If anyone thinks psychedelic rock is passé, they have not experienced Vinyl Soup. The Nashville-based foursome has been around for about ten years and recently went through some personnel changes, but have come out on fire with their third release,
“The Beacon Within”.
