Busty and the Bass

September 13

Vogue Theatre

With their seamless blend of soulful vocals, hip hop, signature brass and synths, Busty and the Bass is ushering in a new era of genre-defying sound. After meeting in their first week of music school, the Montreal-based nine-piece quickly shot up from from packed house party jams to scorching live performances in front of thousands of fans across the US, Canada, Europe and the UK. After building a dedicated international fan base off of the release of just two EPs — GLAM (2015) and LIFT (2016) — Busty took things to the next level with their debut album, “Uncommon Good.” They enlisted veteran producer and mixer Neal Pogue to guide the project, who is best known for his work with the likes of OutKast, Snoop Dogg, Earth, Wind & Fire, M.I.A., Tyler, The Creator, Nicki Minaj, Aretha Franklin, Robyn and Lil Wayne. This album builds on a smooth foundational sound reminiscent of artists like Parliament, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Michael Jackson, weaving in the contemporary influence of Kendrick Lamar, Earth, Wind & Fire, and James Blake. Each song on “Uncommon Good” feels like a single, from the brassy disco groove of “Up Top” to the OutKast-esque “Memories and Melodies” and the sensual, lyrical flow of “Common Ground.” The album synthesizes a swirling mixture of funk, soul, rock, hip-hop, dance music, and gospel that is layered, polished, and unified.
