Since their 1995 debut release, ‘Home’, Blessid Union of Souls have sold millions of records worldwide and never stopped living their dream: Creating and performing music that touches the hearts of countless people across the globe. 2020 marks the 25th Anniversary of their iconic first single ‘I Believe’ which not only topped the charts; it was the 4th most played song on radio of that year! On this, as well as their other top 40 hits, their message of hope and unity has continued into the next generation.
Stronger than ever, original lead singer/song writer, Eliot Sloan, along with Brian Lovely, Chris Arduser, David Lessing and Dave Ramos, are going into their 9th year of touring. They released their first Live DVD,’ Blessid Union of Souls Live at Never on Sundays ‘recorded in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. The stellar musicianship of the band is showcased on every track, including the only live performance of ‘Brother My Brother’ which was featured on Pokemon-The First Movie.
In the course of their career, not only has the band performed in all 50 of these United States several times over, but around the world as well. With appreciation for those who risk their lives every day for our freedom, Blessid Union has had the honor and privilege of performing for U.S. military troops in Germany, Cuba and Africa, as well as Japan, Bahrain and South Korea.
Nothing short of amazing, it’s been a long stretch of road paved with hope and inspired by countless fans, friends and relationships that continue to grow after 25 years. The heart, soul and spirit of this band is still embodied in one simple phrase: Love is the answer. That’s one thing that will never change when it comes to Blessid Union of Souls.
