Today in the studio, we're gonna get down with a little soul punk....A little bit of Red Hot Chili Peppers meet Michael Jackson, with early James Brown as the Frontman....put it all together, and you have the Seattle-based band, "Down North". Whooshi Radio and The Notes Behind the Music welcome into the studio, Down North. The guys will be here, talking about their new EP, as well as their upcoming tur dates.
Down North consists of lead vocalist/dancer Anthony “RenaGade” Briscoe, whose North Carolina breeding makes fans swoon and has no equal in the Pacific NW. Raised on Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke, Anthony combines a style and emotional impact reminiscent of Prince in his vocal expressions, proudly stealing the spotlight with his ballet-trained dancing. Bassist Brandon Storms displays versatility, blending slap/pop bass lines with deep synth, and pitch bent solos that parallel guitar leads. Drummer Conrad Real glues together a foundation through impeccable groove and powerful chops, his finesse, intensity, and strength evocative of Chris Coleman or John Blackwell. Psychedelic-jazz guitarist Nick Quiller dominates the fretboard with limitless imagination, shredding into another dimension, exploring the soundscape from high to low.
If you would like to come into the studio, and talk to the guys in the band, the number is 319-527-6099.
