    Supreme Beings of Leisure are an electronic/trip-hop band. Current members of SBL are Singer/Songwriter Geri Soriano-Lightwood and Multi-Instrumentalist/Programmer Ramin Sakurai. SBL was formed from the remains of the band Oversoul 7 in 1998 when they signed to Palm Pictures.

    In 1996, Oversoul 7 came together as members Geri Soriano-Lightwood, Ramin Sakurai, (Bassist)) Kiran Shahani, and (Guitarist) Rick Torres released “Nothing Like Tomorrow” and “What’s the Deal” on two compilations on the Moonshine Music dance label. After the Moonshine releases, Oversoul 7 signed a demo deal with A&M records recording demos of “Truth From Fiction”, “Never the Same”, and “Last Girl on Earth”, all songs which ended up on the now classic “Supreme Beings of Leisure” debut album (released on Palm Pictures label).

    The release of the first Supreme Beings of Leisure album sold over 250,000 units with very little promotional touring instead SBL opted using the internet to market and promote the album, being the first band to ever do a “Virtual Internet Tour”, and among the very first to use Flash animation for their videos, crediting Supreme Beings of Leisure as the first true internet band of the new millenium.

    After the release of the debut album, the band decided to split leaving Geri and Ramin as the main members of SBL, quickly releasing the second SBL album “Divine Operating System” in 2002. In 2003, SBL decided to leave the Palm Pictures taking a 2 year hiatus releasing various remixes and appearing on various artists albums during this period. In 2006, Supreme Beings of Leisure started writing new material which recurrently ended in their new studio album.

    Renovated and affected by life’s major events now Sakurai and Soriano-Lightwood present their very much awaited album 11i, with a fresh sound but still keeping that wonderful escence of what Supreme Beings of Leisure are all about.
