Down North

Seattle, WA

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 THE 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.
