Tom Moore and On the Soap Box - New Album Available March 23rd!

Tom Moore of Deltona, Ben Calhoun of Orlando and Caleb Muller, also from Orlando, have been long-time buddies, playing  local music venues around Central Florida since high school. Their first album, Songs for Your Mothers to GossipAbout was cut in 2008. The success of that album prompted the trio to launch their second album, Figure It Out! which will be released at a debut performance in DeLand on March 23.
“All the songs were written by the band over the past three or four years,” said bass/vocalist Tom Moore.   
“I describe the music as indie alternative and sometimes compare it to Rogue Wave or Death Cab for Cutie,” said Moore.
The 10-track album was recorded at a studio in Lake Mary with the help of sound engineer Wesley Brach.
On The Soap Box has a large, local following. The band's fans can enjoy singing along with their well-known original song Good-Bye, included on the album, and a new song, Red Flag.
“The title track, Figure It Out! is probably the band's favorite. It has a bunch of interesting time shifts and lyrics that deal with the inner struggle for balance between humility and self-confidence,” said Moore.
On The Soap Box will debut Figure It Out at Cafe DaVinci, 112 W. Georgia Ave., DeLand on Friday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. Autographed CDs will be available at the show. Admission is free.
