Soft People is an indie pop duo comprised of Caleb Nichols and John Metz, a married couple who live in San Luis Obispo, CA. The duo first met when Nichols, a veteran of the Oakland, CA music scene and who had recorded and toured with mid-2000s indie buzz-band Port O’Brien, recruited Metz to be the drummer of his Oakland indie band Grand Lake. Nichols and Metz started dating during their first few months as bandmates and were married several years later. Soft People is the first project that finds the pair collaborating as songwriters and producers. The band began in early 2017 as a bedroom recording project in Atlanta, Georgia. Later that year Nichols and Metz left Atlanta and relocated to their hometown of San Luis Obispo, CA, releasing their their full-length debut and playing their first shows. 2018 has seen them playing shows in the local DIY scene as well as starting Sandwich Kingdom, a tape label which releases an annual compilation of local DIY musicians and poets.

“Tender” is Soft People’s newest single, which Nichols describes as his attempt to write a Morrissey song but as if Morrissey had committed to several years of successful therapy. “Tender” is a response to the violent and hard times we live in; it’s a call to try and find a way to stay in a love in a world that wants us to fall out of it— to dig deep and be kind when everyone around us is screaming bloody murder about every bloody thing.

On this single the band is excited to have Pat Spurgeon of Rogue Wave on drums.

Soft People is playing the 23rd annual celebration of The California Central Coast Pride Festival the July 14th weekend, the same weekend “Tender” is released to the public.
The band opens for Drag Vocalist (and American Idol contestant) Ada Vox.
