KNOWER are hot futuresonic funk-pop. The LA duo represent the best of drummer-producer Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi. Currently touring their fourth album 'Life' , they opened for The Red Hot Chili Peppers this 2017 and continue to take over with their cross over of dub-step grooves, deep harmonies and funky vocals into an incredibly imaginative off-world experience. Their all star 5-piece rotates Thundercat’s sideman Dennis Hamm (Keys), Sam Gendel (Sax), Sam Wilkes (Bass), Rai Thistlethwayte (Keys), Jacob Mann (Keys), Thom Gill (Guitar) combined with Louis Cole (Drums/Vox) and Genevieve Artadi’s iconic hot funk vocal style inspired by the late Prince to Michael Jackson.
An entirely DIY act since formation in 2010, KNOWER’s viral videos, discography and live visual experience has become an international internet phenomena. Clocking millions of views, their live band sesh hit over 4 million views. Videos “F*** The Make Up Skip The Shower” feature on GTA V’s Fly Lo FM, to “THE GOVT. KNOWS” lyric that will stick with you forever. Featured on Montreal Jazz Festival 2017 lineup, they’ve performed at Stockholm Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, Quincy Jones Presents, to Snarky Puppy Family Dinner albums. Known for their live show to take their infectious energy to another level, Quincy Jones best sums up why you can’t miss them, «KNOWER WILL BE LEAVIN' YA'LL ON YOUR KNEES, BEGGIN' FOR MORE.»
Owen Biddle and Zach Danziger whether as a duo, or comprising two thirds of New York's Mister Barrington, are a force pushing the boundaries of live electronic music. Enabled by elaborate MIDI architecture which allows for free-form melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, and visual composition, they've created a universe of hybrid interplay between wood, metal, and machine.
Zach and Owen, whose credits include artists such as The Roots, John Legend, Wayne Krantz, Common, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, Al Green, Sting, and Chaka Khan have, through their innovative use of music technology, been recognized through features in Electronic Musician Magazine, a TEDx presentation at UMass Amherst entitled «Innovative Thinking», and through the support of music companies including Gretsch, Zildjian, Vic Firth, CallowHill, Ableton, iZotope, RME, Keith McMillan, and MONO
