Soul Asylum, initially formed in the early '80s under the name Loud Fast Rules, quickly became part of the celebrated Minneapolis local music scene. This success led to the band entering the major-label mainstream with 1988's Hang Time and its 1990 follow-up, And the Horse They Rode In On, before achieving a commercial breakthrough with 1992's triple platinum Grave Dancers Union.
That album spawned several international hits, including "Runaway Train", which won a Grammy Award for Best Rock
Song, and "Black Gold", and led to steady alternative radio and MTV airplay. Soul Asylum continued to enjoy mainstream
success with 1995's platinum-certified Let Your Dim Light Shine, which featured the hit "Misery", and 1998's Candy from a Stranger; the group also appeared on the soundtrack for multiple Kevin Smith movies, including Clerks. Since returning to action with 2006's The Silver Lining, Soul Asylum has recorded steadily, and become a reliable presence on the road.
Vocalist/guitarist Dave Pirner will be the first one to admit that recording a Soul Asylum album can sometimes be very stressful, simply because he cares so deeply about every aspect of his songs and how the record unfolds. However, the frontman reports that making the band's twelfth studio full-length, Hurry Up and Wait, was a completely seamless, enjoyable and productive experience.
In March of 2020, the band ended their best-selling tour in 15 years, The Dead Letter Tour.
St. Paul Peterson & the Minneapolis Funk All Stars:
Paul Peterson, born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was the youngest son in a musical family. He was discovered by Prince in 1983 and groomed to replace Monte Moir as keyboardist of R&B band The Time. Peterson gained exposure when the band appeared in the hit movie Purple Rain.
When The Time broke up in 1984, Prince gathered the remnants to form The Family, with Peterson as lead singer. Peterson is also a session musician and has backed up many acts in concert. In the late 1980s to early 1990s, Peterson toured as a member of the Steve Miller Band. He has also toured with Kenny Loggins, Boz Scaggs, Donny Osmond, David Sanborn, Oleta Adams and most recently Peter Frampton. In 1990, he released a song, "Every Heart Needs a Home", on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Soundtrack. From 1998 to 2000, he was the bassist in the house band on the Donny & Marie TV program. His writing, producing and performing credits have contributed to the sale of over 20 million albums and is currently the host of the popular “Music On The Run” podcast. The Minneapolis Funk Allstars consist of former members that toured with Prince, Janet Jackson, The Time, New Power Generation, The Family, New Edition, The Steve Miller Band, Peter Frampton, and Kenny Loggins.
