BIOGRAPHY

A Soul Purpose was formed in the Fall of 2008 as a church band for an additional service one evening each month at Our Savior Lutheran Church. Soon after their first performance members of the group were featured on live local television as the musical guest for the CW Louisville Live and for the Kentuckiana Music Holiday on the CW Louisville. The RPM Challenge gave them the confidence needed to begin writing songs in earnest for their debut CD. Check out their Facebook page, complete with videos from their television performances.
