About Souls Worn Thin Souls Worn Thin Souls Worn Thin is the contrivance of Stephen Wayne on vocals and guitar, Josh White, a heavy hitting all out beast on the kit, and guitarist turned bass player Cody Sanders. Souls Worn Thin recorded their debut album "Kill Your T.V.", which was released on September 15th, 2021. SWT is a three-piece rock group heavily influenced by the punk and grunge bands of their youth. They strive to bring back that energy to the stage, delivered with an almost tangible Pacific Northwest feel that vacillates between aggressive and cheeky. You'll recognize them immediately by their brand of melodic rock/punk simmered in the muddy footprints of the Puget Sound. The band has enjoyed success in the local area with over 30 shows from Portland to Seattle to Spokane and were recently featured as the 99.9 KISW Loud and Local Band of the Week in January of 2022. Outside the Puget Sound the group has been played in Las Vegas, NV with 92.3 KOMP, the Discover You Radio Show Denver, CO, and radio stations across the globe from Greece to Peru and Japan to Australia. So far, two songs from the album have been recognized by the Songwriters Association of Washington, with "Ain't No Life" and "Swarm" recognized as a "Finalist" and receiving and "Honorable Mention" consecutively. The local scene has a heavy influence on the guys. They try to get out to as many other local band's shows as often as they can. The scene took quite a beating during the last few garbage sauce years; but the band knows it's important to go to the shows, buy that band's t-shirt, and over-tip your bartender. The guys just finished their next album titled "Treason", which was recorded at Magic Mix Studios with the incomparable Daum Duo and is currently being master by the grammy award winning Howie Weinberg.
