The Nth Power

Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power is on a mission to share the light. Formed during an impromptu late-night jam at Jazz Fest 2012 in New Orleans, the relentlessly funky and soulful band believes in music as a higher power tapping into an energy that is simultaneously sexy and spiritual, with songs that will inspire audiences to dance, groove, make love or just stand there with goose bumps.

The quartet hails from diverse musical backgrounds, races and creeds. Female powerhouse Nikki Glaspie was Beyonce’s world-touring drummer for five years before she joined Ivan Nevilles New Orleans funk outfit, Dumpstaphunk. Bassist Nate Edgar of Groovechild and John Browns Body perfectly compliments Singer and Guitarist Nick Cassarino who came from the Jennifer Hartswick Band and toured with Big Daddy Kane. Finally rounding off the ensemble is the newest and youngest member, Courtney J Mell Smith who brings his soulful vocals and keyboard abilities to the table.

The Nth Powers 2013 independent EP, Basic Minimum Skills Test, showcases a first glimpse of the spark shared among the group, delivering gospel-style vocals with soul, jazz, funk and world-beat riffs in nearly mathematical fashion.

Its my dream team, said Glaspie. Each one of us is a songwriter, so when we get together, everything becomes that much stronger. Beyond raw skill, however, Glaspie cites a deep spiritual connection as the glue that binds them together. Music is what brought us together, but its the spiritual bond that makes us play so in touch with each other, she explained. And at the core of their vibe is a deviously simple concept the healing power of love.

Following The Nth Powers 2013 debut, their inspirational sets floored audiences at music festivals like Electric Forest, Bear Creek, Catskill Chill and North Coast Music Festival. In just the last six months, the group has performed more than 50 shows in 21 states across the US, and made their second international appearance at Australia’s Caloundra Music Festival on their 2014 Fall In Love Tour.

Although the band members are based across the East Coast, they maintain New Orleans as their spiritual home, and the celebratory essence of that city’s music culture is audible in each performance.

Simply put, there is something pretty magical happening in this band, and they’re only just getting started. Were going as far as you can go on the planet Earth and playing music, explains Glaspie. I don’t know how many times we’ve said it we are so blessed.

Together, The Nth Power wants to change lives through a message of musical love and understanding.

MARADEEN

MARADEEN is an American rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Founded by guitarist, Whit Murray, in the summer of 2014 with keyboardist, Kaitlyn Connor, and bassist, Sterling Miller, the band formed their initial roots as a high energy rock n roll quartet. With classical and jazz improvisation backgrounds they forged and evolved a unique and well-versed sound. In 2014 Tom Galloway moved to Nashville for songwriting and began collaborations with Murray. The band entered the studio "Welcome to 1979" in the spring of 2015 and recorded their first full-length LP entitled, "Mirage". The album features the initial hard-hitting rockers from the band's formative stage while revealing the new songwriting dynamic between Murray and Galloway.
The origins of MARADEEN run deep. Murray played lead guitar for Galloway's band, Mama's Love, between the years of 2009-12. During this time they toured nationwide, developed a devoted fanbase, and recorded with renowned producers Tom Tapley and John Keane. Galloway continued fronting Mama's Love while Murray extended his education at The Berklee College of Music.
In the Summer of 2015, drummer John Rodrigue joined the fold rounding out the final lineup. In the spring of 2016, the band entered Welcome to 1979 once again to record their sophmore album, "Above the Horizon," with producer extraordinaire Wes Bailey (Keyboardist for Moon Taxi.) Released in October of 2016, the band has been touring heavily in support of the album since.
A long line of history, coincidence, and mutual passion brought together the group, and they continue to make remarkable strides as they climb the mountain of music.
