      EVENT DETAILS
      Busty and the Bass


      The Montral, Quebec octet -- Nick Ferraro [vocals, alto sax], Evan Crofton a.k.a. Alistair Blu [vocals, keys, synths], Scott Bevins [trumpet], Chris Vincent [trombone], Louis Stein [guitar], Milo Johnson [bass], Eric Haynes [keys, piano], and Julian Trivers [drums] -- score nostalgic lyrical ruminations with a soundscape of simmering soul, fiery funk, spirited rock, hypnotic hip-hop, and artful R&B, inviting icons such as Macy Gray and George Clinton along for the ride.A collective journey prepared them to be able to dispense such wisdom. As the story goes, the musicians met during their first week as students in the jazz program at McGill University back in 2011. They went on to drop a pair of EPs -- GLAM [2015] and LIFT [2016] -- before unveiling 2017s full-length debut, Uncommon Good. In addition to packing houses on headline tours, they graced the stages of international festivals such as Made in America, Osheaga, Pinkpop, Montreal International Jazz Festival, The Great Escape, Ottawa Bluefest, and Rifflandia, playing alongside the likes of Radiohead, Anderson .Paak, and Lana Del Rey. To date, theyve amassed over 10 million total streams and attracted the acclaim of Huffington Post and many more. Giving back whenever possible, Busty and the Bass also capitalized on every opportunity to perform at public schools across North America, emphasizing the importance of music and education.2018 saw the guys do something they hadnt done in three years; they took a break and hunkered down to write. Rather than simply jam and rely on instrumental vibes, the members crafted song ideas individually and presented them to the larger collective.We took one-week or two-week stretches and wrote by ourselves, and then we came together for three uninterrupted weeks in the studio, recalls Scott.Once again, the group collaborated with GRAMMY Award-nominated producer Neal Pogue [OutKast, Earth Wind and Fire]. Evan goes on, Hes like a spiritual guide. He focuses all of our opinions and musical ideas into one atmosphere.With 2019s end approaching, Busty and the Bass released Clouds [feat. Amber Navran]. For the first time, they welcomed guest vocalists on a record. Moonchild singer Amber lent her unmistakable croon to Clouds as a slick guitar echoes through a steady and stark beat. Soon after, trumpets pipe up between warbling talk box and a heartfelt hook.I was going through a really shitty breakup, which lasted forever, says Evan. At the end of it, I could finally see through the clouds."As another first, Summer incorporates a swell of cinematic strings, adding rich scope to the tune. Nick elaborates, I whistled the chorus melody while I was walking on the beach. It sounds like another breakup tune, but its really about a shitty summer. I was breaking up with happiness."
