As a young lad, Steve found himself mesmerized by the psychedelic stereoscopic sounds of rock bands of the 70’s and 80’s. With a burning desire to get guitars and play guitars, he set out to learn how to make these crazy sounds on steel and wood, pick ups and amps, and pedals! Lots of pedals! He plays professionally in rock and blue grass bands, dabbles in blues and jazz and now finds himself ridding the flying coat tails of 4 crazy good musicians, chomping chords and ripping licks to classic R&B, funk, pop and Steely Dan. Needless to say he's stoked to be playing with Soul Doubt!

Ryan has been singing and playing music his whole life. His favorite sounds have always been the classic soul of the 70's like Al Green, Marvin Gaye, The Delfonics and The Temptations. Having the opportunity to play and sing some of the songs from this era alongside four other amazing musicians has been a joy. Ryan is a software Product Director by day and forever laying down the Soul by night. Along with two of his other bandmates, he is passionate about aviation and holds a Private Pilot License. Next time you see an airplane flying over Santa Cruz, give a wave. It might be one of us!

Music and flying have been Barry's passions for a long time (since before your sun burned hot in space, and before your race was born), with a little sailing, stargazing and train chasing thrown in. His wife says he is obsessed with transport. Fortunately, she likes to travel. It's really just that Barry likes going places, better than he likes being places....but if he had to be somewhere, onstage with Soul Doubt is one of his top choices.
