The Soul Rebel Project began when singer/songwriter Mike Francis Jr, after having a very successful run playing hundreds of shows up and down the east coast with Artist Mile 21, parted ways with some of the original members of the group. A hiatus was taken to focus on writing and the beginnings of SRP were in the making. After writing close to two Albums, Francis took the idea to close friend Adam Saylor and he recruited members of 3 Vibe and Left Over Wine to complete the group. They immediately began work on the first album “East Coast Island” and from the first sound of the first rehearsal, a new Caribbean inspired vibe was created. Working hard playing all over New England as far as California and Texas, the Soul Rebel Project is having success with singles like “King” and “Good Burn”. Their Second Album “Higher Place” Debut at number 8 on the Billboard Reggae Charts. The band has grown a reputation for improvisational skill and ever changing live shows which helps them standout in a category of their own. SRP continues to bring their conscious message, and heavy hitting vibes to well respected clubs all over New England and Beyond.
