In 2014, Michael McKnight and David Bollt worked together on Tampa’s Tattoofest Epic Tattoo Weekend and since came to love each other’s work. “David is beyond amazing” says Michael. ” A talent like his comes along as infrequently as a Chopin or Mozart. His imagination and style are a huge inspiration to me. It’s an amazing honor to be working with such a prolific artist on Soulidium’s new album. David perfectly defines everything that true art stands for”.
Sharing their music back and forth, (David himself is also a talented musician), the two were able to take an intimate peek inside of each others hearts & minds and find a strong artistic common ground. Of the impact of Michael’s lyrics and Soulidium’s music on the new album, David says, “These tracks reach deep into my core. Listening to them, I feel forgotten parts of my heart begin to reawaken and come alive”.
David’s review on Soulidium’s new album? “Dig down deep and get ready to resonate with the power and conviction that screams from these tracks. Prepare every cell in your being to feel the vibration… and AWAKEN”.
