 Bio:

Raised on James Brown and Sam Cooke, frontman Anthony Briscoe combines a style of emotional impact reminiscent of Prince in his vocal expressions and proudly steals the spotlight with his ballet-trained dancing. Psychedelic-jazz guitarist Nick Quiller dominates the fretboard with a limitless imagination that explores the soundscape from high to low. Bassist Brandon Storms blends slap and pop bass lines with deep synth, and pitch bent solos that parallel guitar leads, while drummer Conrad Real glues together a foundation through impeccable groove and powerful chops, his finesse, intensity, and strength are evocative of Chris Coleman and John Blackwell.

The alternative rock/R&B band has performed most notably at Bumbershoot Music Festival, Rock Legends Cruise and Live Nation’s Headquarters. The four piece band has been mentioned in the top NW outlets like CBS Seattle, The Stranger, Seattle Times, Portland Mercury and most recently Seattle Channel’s ‘Band In Seattle’. The band continues to release more music and fans along the way with their motto ‘No Retreat, No Return and No Surrender.’
