45 Souls is the band of Chicago-based musicians Michael Petersen and Gibson Arlasky. The band’s roots-rock Americana style reflects their varied interests in acoustic and electric rock, folk, pop, country, old-school R&B, and much more. 45S blends textured instrumental arrangements, smooth vocal harmonies and introspective songwriting to form a unique soulful sound influenced by and reflective of decades of music in American popular culture.
We are happy to announce the release of our new CD, River! Gib and Mike are very pleased to be working with a new engineer, Brandon Pope at Joyride Studios, as well as the session musicians Steve Doyle (electric guitar and dobro), Brian Wilkie (pedal steel guitar), and Gerald Dowd (drums).
