45 Souls

45 Souls is the band of Chicago-based musicians Michael Petersen and Gibson Arlasky. The band’s style and influences are widespread, and their writing and performances reflect their varied interests in acoustic and electric rock, folk, country, pop, and much more. 45S blends textured instrumental arrangements, smooth vocal harmonies and introspective songwriting with a hint of roots flavor to form a unique soulful sound, one not connected to any particular genre, but surely influenced by and reflective of decades of music in American popular culture.
