Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi Grammy–winning percussion duo of Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note is an explosion of sound. With an expansive roster of next-level musicians—representing members of Prince, Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Marcus Miller, Toto, Justin Timberlake, and more—the band is pushing funk music into the future, building on the uplifting, pioneering foundations laid out by the likes of James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone and infusing their fresh take with tastes of afrobeat, hip-hop, psychedelia, world folklore, and more.

With the release of 2018’s Swagism, Ghost-Note has made their mission clear. The album puts rhythm at the forefront, with irresistible, heavy-hitting beats underlying the group’s wild, rich music. Featuring numerous guest collaborators, including Kamasi Washington, Karl Denson, Bobby Sparks, Nigel Hall, Taz, and others, Swagism showcases the band’s stunning ability to meld and amplify sounds, ultimately adding to Ghost-Note’s sharp, complex collaborations.

Fearless, both in Swagism’s sonic depth and conscious social commentary, the band easily translates this adventurousness in a live setting. Ghost-Note’s live performances are bold and in your face, with the group offering up none of the tight-laced pretenses frequently associated with the band’s jazz roots. Focused on creating seductive dance-able grooves and a contagious feel-good energy, each show is an opportunity to let loose and connect, for both fans and the musicians alike.

After forming in 2015, Ghost-Note has already begun to take the world by storm. The group’s two studio albums—2018’s Swagismand 2015’s Fortified—have earned critical acclaim and popular success around the globe, with both albums hitting the #1 spot on the iTunes Jazz Charts. Furthermore, the ever-growing family of musicians has mounted successful headlining tours in the United States, Canada, and Japan and performed at high-profile international music festivals and events.

Born out of a basement in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood in 2015, High Pulp has been taking Seattle by storm. Obsessive attention to compositional detail and unique song structures characterize the band’s winding music. Effortlessly fusing diverse influences from jazz to funk and hip-hop to punk has lead High Pulp to call it’s music Future Funk Fusion - a melding of the past to create something distinctly cutting edge.

In March of 2017, High Pulp began playing weekly shows at Seattle’s revered jazz club The Royal Room, facilitating the development of deeply engaged in-the-moment conversations between members. As the band grew its ability to express and improvise in the live setting, the buzz grew stronger. Since High Pulp initially broke onto the scene, the band has already played to packed rooms at some of Seattle’s most prominent venues such as Neumos, The Tractor, and The Crocodile, as well as playing festivals such as Upstream, BAMF, and Big Bldg Bash.

In January of 2018, the band entered the ’studio’ (a friend’s cabin on Whidbey Island) with Jason Gray (Polyrhythmics) to record their debut album ‘Bad Juice’. Featuring 8 songs, ‘Bad Juice’ is High Pulp’s manifesto - taking the listener on a series of unexpected turns and all the while inducing subconscious head-bobbing. At its core, this is a band of adversaries - the moment that High Pulp seems to fit into a ‘genre’, it will be immediately shattered.

"Seattle’s fusion big band High Pulp’s debut... answers the new millennium’s post-trip-hop, -indie, -ambient, -drum & bass, etc. contemporary with vinyl sharp grooves, macramé arrangements, and session-level instrumentation" - Earshot Jazz
