Sierra Classic Sound

Like the soaring fault-block mountains of their namesake,

Sierra Classic Sound aims for higher elevations. Taking the back roads to get there – the project started as a suite of incredibly deep bass lines from bassist/composer David Soule and writer/lyricist/arranger/producer Will Kreth. Seismically incubating for years, the demos took on new life with tweaked-out beats, keys and guitar lines provided by Pittsburgh-based producer / engineer Herman (DJ Soy Sos) Pearl . These “stems” – while compelling, were not yet really “songs.”
