The Soul8m8s is a family band that has been entertaining audiences with their soulful music for years. But when their daughter, Lyris, expressed an interest in joining the band, they were unsure of how it would impact the group dynamic. However, after bringing her on board, they quickly realized that having her join the band was one of the best decisions they ever made.
First and foremost, having Lyris join the band brought the family even closer together. Playing music together is an incredibly intimate experience, and it allows the family to bond on a deeper level. They spend countless hours rehearsing and performing together, which has given them the opportunity to create unforgettable memories and form an unbreakable bond.
But beyond the emotional benefits, having Lyris join the band has also improved the group's sound. She brings a fresh perspective and a unique musical style that complements the rest of the band perfectly. Her vocals and instrumentation have helped take their music to the next level, and audiences have responded positively to the addition.
In addition, having their daughter in the band has opened up new opportunities for The Soul8m8s. They have been able to perform at venues and events that they may not have been able to without her, and they have gained a new fanbase that is drawn to her youthful energy and talent.
Lyris isn't the only new addition to the band, though. Her brother Liam has been playing the drums with The Soul8m8s since 2019 and has shown great confidence in performing. Together, the siblings add a new dimension to the band's music and have helped elevate their performances to new heights.
The Soul8m8s' success as a family band is no surprise, given their impressive track record. They were regional champions of the Soundwaves Music Competition in O2 Academy in Birmingham back in 2019, and were also awarded the Best Online Jam award by One Nation UK in 2020. They were even named "National Filipino Family Band" by Jhermination Events.
And their success hasn't slowed down. The band is set to be one of the finalists in BBC Radio Derby's DerbyVision music contest this May 5th. They are also planning to go on their second tour called Filipino Festival Tour, bringing their music to new audiences.
The Soul8m8s' journey as a family band with a new generation is a testament to the power of music to bring families closer together. Their story is an inspiration to aspiring musicians and families alike, showing that with passion, dedication, and a little bit of soul, anything is possible
