New Lyric Video for Illogical Heart
Illogical Heart was one of the first songs we wrote together. Around that time, there was a party (a Christmas party to be specific ) and I noticed a friend was spending a lot of time away from everyone and on her phone but I had no idea why.. come to discover she had just started a new relationship.. with someone who lived "across the boarder", miles away, in another country! I thought how unfair! That her heart fell for another so far away.. they can't even be together.. doesn't it know how hard this will be?
How Do I Forget You (edit)
"Want to talk about vocal performances- channeling a little soulful Janis Joplin on this one."

Soul Filter is soulful four piece rock-pop band based out of Summerside PEI. With 5 single releases from their debut album A Minor Conspiracy, the band has been featured on CBC's Mainstreet with Matt Rainnie, Q93, CBC East Coast Music Hour with Bill Roach, The East Coast Countdown, Q104 in Halifax, CJIM Montreal's Rock Station, New Scotland Radio, CIOE FM's "Fresh From the East" & "East Coast Rising". In February their single Like Water was voted into CBC Searchlight 2019's Top 100, and most recently the band shared the stage with Big Wreck, The Road Hammers, Honeymoon Suite & Haywire at PEI's annual Rock The Boat Music Festival.
When founding members, husband & wife duo Karen & Mike Penton, first met in 2001, she didn't know he was a musician, and he didn't know she had a secret desire to be one. With their newly formed partnership and mutual passion, the two went on to create several popular cover bands (Junkmale, Pretty Tragic, a No Doubt & Alanis Morissette tribute show, Karen & Mike acoustic duo), performing all over PEI and into NB, before forming Soul Filter in 2017.
An increasing passion to write and a gnawing desire to see what kind of magic they would create helped push Karen & Mike to write and record their debut album. A Minor Conspiracy, released December 14, 2018 is a 10 song journey through love, life, loss and discovery. Baring a reminiscent feel of the 90’s soft rock female era, lead singer/songwriter Karen gets her musical inspiration from artists like The Cranberries, Alanis Morissette, & Sheryl Crow. To bring the album to life on stage, Soul Filter brought in long time friends and former cover band mates Ronnie Arsenault on bass guitar, and Marc Robichaud on drums. The album infuses pop, blues and folk into their rock roots sound. Acoustic rhythm serves as the backbone to melodically sweet electric guitar riffs and punchy choruses. Dynamically weaving between soft falsetto and soulful, powerful vocals, Karen delivers empowering, heartfelt lyrics wrapped in catchy, dreamy melodies.
The album is available on all streaming and downloading platforms.
