Feel good music for funky souls
Flashback to circa 2009. Pre-Instagram, when we had more time and less money, three boys were living the classic definition of college life in Bangalore. Days went by in a haze of college fests, classes and crazy weekends but the one thing which was a constant was – music. Sylvester Pradeep, Joel Rozario and Siddarth Abraham kept running around in the same circles but like star-crossed lovers, took their own sweet time to come together over their common love for music. When they did come together, the sparks flew, and how! Solder was born with these three talented guys, and the result was feel good, original, funky fresh, happy music that got the crowds to their feet. Solder went on to play multiple shows and festivals across India, gathering a loyal fan following for their original music and re-imagined covers. From Strawberry Fields to Channel V’s Launchpad, the stage became their second home. Many years went by and in 2016, as with all highly creative collaborations, the band felt the need to spend some time pursuing their personal musical and professional directions. But the pull of their creative synergy was too strong for them to ignore for too long. Solder reunited in 2018, and to round them out musically, they welcomed Rishi Rohra, DJ and Music Producer, into the mix. With Siddarth on Vocals and Acoustic Guitar, Joel on the Drums, Sylvester on Lead Guitar and Rishi on Bass, Solder is now set to storm the stage once more. Their first single, ‘Save the World’ was released across multiple online platforms in November 2018, and is just the start for more to come.
