Umphrey’s McGee

The music of Umphrey’s McGee unfolds like an unpredictable conversation between longtime friends. Its six participants—Brendan Bayliss [guitar, vocals], Jake Cinninger [guitar, vocals], Joel Cummins [keyboards, piano, vocals], Andy Farag [percussion], Kris Myers [drums, vocals], and Ryan Stasik [bass]—know just how to communicate with each other on stage and in the studio. A call of progressive guitar wizardry might elicit a response of soft acoustic balladry, or a funk groove could be answered by explosive percussion. At any moment, heavy guitars can give way to heavier blues as the boys uncover the elusive nexus between jaw-dropping instrumental virtuosity and airtight songcraft.

The conversation continues on their eleventh full-length album, it’s not us [Nothing Too Fancy Music]—out January 12, 2018.

“It represents the band, because it basically runs the gamut from prog rock to dance,” says Brendan. “We’ve mastered our ADD here. The record really shows that.”

“No matter what you’re into, there’s something on it’s not us that should speak to you,” agrees Joel. “This is a statement album for Umphrey’s McGee. The sound is as fresh as ever. The songs are strong as they’ve ever been. We’re always pushing forward.”

It is also how the band is celebrating its 20-year anniversary. Instead of retreading the catalog, they turn up with a pile of new tunes.

SunSquabi: A Hydro Funk Experience

SunSquabi has launched out of 2016 with HUGE momentum on their side. With festival announcements such as Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Camp Bisco, High Sierra announced already the band has reached the National spotlight.

The Colorado trio has quickly become one of the premier up-and-coming acts in the live electronic/jam world. SunSquabi is set to release their debut EP with GRiZ’s All Good Records on April 8th. The 8-track Odyssey takes you on an epic musical journey that features tracks with artists GRiZ and Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli.

SunSquabi continues to break down and analyze the expectations of what a “Live-Electronic” band should be. SunSquabi is dedicated to their ever-evolving craft in the studio and on the live stage. It’s no wonder the twentysomethings in SunSquabi are gaining national attention for their unique sound. The band has multiple answers when asked to describe their sound, but most often describe it as an Electronic Hydro Funk Experience.
