Get in your car, turn on the Soft White Sixties, roll down the windows and drive. It’s that kind of music— a sound that’s been dubbed “Working Class Soul.” The Bay Area band, formed in 2008, started with singer/songwriter Octavio Genera and includes Joey Bustos (drums), Ryan Noble (bass), and Aaron Eisenberg (guitar/keys). They started out playing dark, crappy clubs but a lot can happen in five years and now the band is prepping to release their debut album, “Get Right” this fall. We talked to the band about their journey.

A song usually starts with being about 50% done and then we fill the rest out as a band.
Surround yourself with people that are doing what you want to do.
Try the salmon.

We made it up. None of it existed before we made it.
