Local 913: Dinosoul
Dinosoul is not your typical band. The spiritually charged indie rock group actually has a mission statement they recite at every live show.
“I’m always big on intentions. Whenever I start something, I think it’s very important to see what your vision or your mission is because it brings you back to why you started it. It’s so easy to get off track and have people come into your life that [will] try to take over. If you don’t stick with what you sought out to do, it’s not going to work. I mean, sometimes it does work, but it’s really hard.”
Carolyn Hilliard (keyboards/vocals) wrote Dinosoul’s mission statement:
“Dinosoul’s vision is to let our music find the people who need it in their lives. We strive put our highest and truest energy out into the universe to allow it to connect to the souls who need to be touched. We and they will be exactly where each other needs to be. The universe is all knowing and has mysterious ways.. It knows who needs to hear our music when we refrain from expectations and control….just TRUST.
We are a band who enjoys and believes in the power of music and the universe. We will not be forced, controlled or stressed. When this occurs, there is nothing that can be created freely and truly. Boundaries are put up. Jealousy, resentment, and competition take over. The universe is disharmonized. Trust is breached - an illusion is made.”
Dinosoul has just released their debut album Eleven. More on the band is at their website.
