Footprint Series


Look towards the future, but love where you came from....

Soul Step Records started with a singular mission in mind: to release music from artists who may not have the funding to get their music pressed on vinyl.

I could not be any more excited to share with the Soul Step world our very first release from the FOOTPRINT SERIES. This series focuses on where I come from, Appalachia. 

Bluegrass, Country, Honky-Tonk music was all part of my musical upbringing. To this day the sound of a clawhammer banjo will get me homesick. 

The FOOTPRINT SERIES will be focused on Appalachian artists and musicians keeping Appalachian music alive. 

So make sure these  records are in your collection. It is a toast to where we came from, and we hope to raise many more glasses with you.
