Soul Desicion

 

SoulDecision are a Canadian soul and pop group that achieved moderate success in the late 90s in the U.S and Canada, being best known for their 1999 retro ode to sleazy 80s and early 90s rnb titled “Faded”. That track, reminiscent of later tunes such as Bruno Mars’ “Treasure” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines, was a major commercial success. The band’s line-up, style, and level of success was vastly different during the time of their debut work and their follow-up albums. The group was originally a trio consisting of Trevor Guthrie (vocals, guitar), David Bowman (vocals), and Ken Lewko (keyboards).

 

While their singles, “Faded” and “Ooh It’s Kinda Crazy” incorporated dance music, the majority of their debut album, ‘No One Does It Better’, released in 2000, was mainly influenced by smooth balladry. That album sold 750,000 copies worldwide. However, the massive success of “Faded” left the group saddled with the label of being a ‘one-hit-wonder’, especially with that single being somewhat atypical of their general sound at that time.

After promotion and touring for their first album had completed, soulDecision went on a long hiatus which resulted in a big change in line-up. In 2004, Dave Bowman left the band, and three additions took place to the band: James Reid (guitar), Tino Zulfo (bass) and Terepai Richmond (drums). Before the release of their second album, ‘Shady Satin Drug’, the band claimed that their original line-up was badly influenced by the record company, given a marketing-based image that they didn’t agree with.

The group was formed in Vancouver under the original name 'Indecision' by singer and multi-instrumentalist Trevor Guthrie, singer David Bowman, and keyboard player Ken Lewko, who were studying music together at Capilano College. Before signing a record deal, they released a couple of singles that received national top 40 radio airplay. The success of those singles led them to a record deal with Universal Music. However, due to naming conflicts, they had to change their name from Indecision, a requirement they were unhappy with; they in fact, allowed their manager, Garry Francis, to choose the new name soulDecision. Although launched at the height of the boy band era, soulDecision were not a boy band, as they wrote their own music and played their own instruments.
