MOHAVISOUL, is an award-winning, San Diego-based, California-style Contemporary Bluegrass-Americana band playing original music that combines West Virginia roots with 5th-generation California heritage. MohaviSoul wraps storytelling in music with a blend of original music and great covers. MohaviSoul has released five CD’s: Every Second (1/2013), Blue Diesel (12/2013), Hometown Blues (8/2017), Live at the 42ndAnnual Huck Finn Jubilee (12/2019), and their new (1/2021) CD of 13 new original songs called “Stories and Memories”, with three singles “Make It Up”, “Fourteen Days”, and “Breakin’ Down” also released in 2021.

MohaviSoul gained national attention at the Bluegrass Ramble in September 2021 in Raleigh, NC as an invited Showcase Artist at the IBMA World of Bluegrass, and is the first band since Nickel Creek invited to represent SoCal at IBMA’s World of Bluegrass. The Bluegrass Standard said of Hometown Blues CD - “The band is able to blend all types of bluegrass, that include traditional, newgrass, & original material. It’s bluegrass from the soul that harkens back to the origins of bluegrass music blended explicitly in a contemporary sound. Their outstanding playing on all tracks tell they love what they do. “On My Way” best exemplifies each player solo instrumentation & ability to blend their unique sound.” San Diego Music Awards Academy (SDMA) nominated Hometown Blues best album of year (2018) & Stories and Memories (2022) and SDMA nominated for Best Country/Americana Band (2020 & 2022).

MohaviSoul’s new album, “Stories and Memories,” is getting rave reviews, national and international radio play, awards, and nominations too. This includes great reviews from the San Diego Troubadour, Alternate Root Magazine, and most recently from Bluegrass Unlimited (, that calls MohaviSoul the “Seldom Scene of the West,” which is a huge compliment too. MohaviSoul’s song “Make It Up” from this album also won best Bluegrass/Country Song for the 18th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards (2022). Several songs also have charted in the Grassicana top 20 from radio play in 2022.
