Kindred Souls is the musical partnership of singer-songwriter Jeff Rafferty and keyboardist Lon Bachrach. These tunesmiths have produced nine albums over the past two decades, and have spent the better part of the last year recording "The Whole Enchilada (and other Modern Fairy Tales)," a fourteen song odyssey eliciting the full range of their talents.
Having met in the late 80's Jeff and Lon worked together in such bands as The Eleventh Hour, Ton of Bricks, and Rhythm Tribe. Having formed Kindred Souls in 1992, they travelled the country throughout the 90's, honing their performance skills and developing their craft.
Moving to New Jersey in 2001, Kindred Souls quickly became a staple of the Central Jersey music scene. The could also be found performing in New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware, and could be found every 1st Sunday in November playing in Central Park for the crowds at the New York City Marathon. During the next decade the band released the albums "Fire and Water," "Takes Two," "Living Out Loud," and the critically acclaimed "Social Ninja."
In the spring of 2010, Kindred Souls took it upon themselves to organize and run a statewide fundraiser benefitting New Jersey Food Banks. The band played twenty one shows in forty eight hours and raised nearly twenty thousand dollars in one weekend. Their efforts made national news, helping many folks in need, and drew attention to a much unheralded issue

A release date is pending. We would sincerely like to thank all of our friends and fans for their continued patience and support.
