Without hype, without gimmicks, sometimes even without a record label, Blessid Union Of Souls has quietly established itself over the last nine years as one of the premier bands.
After adding two new members to the group in 2002, Bryan Billhimer on guitar and Shaun Schaefer on drums, the creative core of the band, which also includes mainstay Tony Clark on bass, has new life and exciting new ideas as proven on their latest recordings yet to be heard by the public.
From their haunting 1995 #1 breakthrough hit "I Believe" to the rousing 1999 smash "Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me for Me)," Blessid Union originally specialized in emotional, accessible tunes that speak directly to an audience and proudly developed one of the most dedicated, intense followings around. Writing duo Eliot Sloan (lead vocals, piano) and Jeff Pence (guitars) are dedicated to making music that stands the test of time.
The success of "I Believe" and top twenty hits "Let Me Be The One" and "Oh, Virginia" would prove the quintet was more than a one-single wonder. 'Home' was certified Platinum and the release of their second CD titled Blessid Union Of Souls, found more success with two more top-twenty hits in "I Wanna Be There" and "Light In Your Eyes".
For their third CD, Blessid Union of Souls wanted to capture more of the high energy of the group's live shows, so they released Walking Off the Buzz, the group's most diverse and accomplished album to date. While fans of Blessid Union's early sound found plenty to enjoy, the big hit was "Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me for Me)," an exuberant celebration of real-life love. Also including on 'Buzz' was crowd favorite 'That's The Girl I've Been Telling You About', the undeniable smash hit power ballad 'Standing at the Edge of the Earth' and the dark but intriguing 'South Hampton Avenue' along with an array of emotionally driven collection of songs.
Now on to the fourth CD titled, The Singles. Along with all their signature tunes, The Singles includes the irresistible new songs "Storybook Life" and "...And Then She Hit Me," as well as a live rendition of "Hey, Leonardo" and a tremendous fan favorite, the punk/reggae version of "I Believe". Also featured is "Brother, My Brother," from the soundtrack of the hit feature film "Pokemon: The First Movie". "Storybook Life," the CD's upbeat first single features rapper/singer 3XL (from Three Time Loser) who also serves as Blessid's producer and co-writer.
At a time when so many artists seem to blossom and fade overnight, Blessid Union of Souls stands as a welcome exception, a band that's in it for the long haul. They have just finished a new CD that will feature some of the band's finest work called "Perception" and start touring the US, with some new surprises in a revamped show for 2005!
