View World Music Days Events for this Artist
Bringing the mass appeal of pop music, the charisma of jazz, the groove of funk, and the soul of gospel, Vertical Current is not your typical quintet! Since the formation of the band in 2009, "VC" has been busy crafting fresh, exciting original music, harnessing the skill and experience of its members - and the vibrant creative energy of the incredible musical community surrounding them - to achieve their unique, powerful sound.
Individually, the members of Vertical Current have traveled throughout the world, performing and/or recording with a variety of top billed artists, including Earth Wind & Fire, Roberta Flack, The Roots, Michael McDonald, Lauryn Hill, Miley Cyrus, Sara Bareilles, Eddie Levert, Jill Scott, J. Cole, Guy, Tye Tribbett, Israel Houghton, and Mary Mary. As a band, VC has been honored to accompany/share the bill with incredible acts like the Robert Glasper Experiment, Eric Roberson, Jessica Reedy, Jeff Murrell, and Snarky Puppy keyboardist Cory Henry. Not surprisingly, interacting with such amazing artists and composers has further kindled Vertical Current's passion to create and perform at the highest level.
The band is excited to share their compositions - and dynamic live performance - with the world! Following up their eclectic 2011 debut EP "aRe" (produced by Philadelphia hit-maker Don Robinson), VC's first full-length project "Bright Side of Midnight" and live studio DVD recording are currently in the final stages of production, and due to be released this year. Vertical Current is poised to take flight, and invites you to join them on their journey!
