One of the more unfortunate parts of today’s modern music is that real R&B and Soul bands have become a thing of the past. Looking to revive the full band sound is emerging group Elevation Theory.
This 9 piece band of young musicians all united while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, and have been building a strong reputation as a backing band for acts like K. Michelle, Jordan Knight and now Sebastian Mikael.
But, only being a band is not their final goal, and they are quickly making that known with the release of their first original music project, the Her Favorite Mixtape. The 8-track set is an emotionally charged modern R&B project, that successfully draws inspiration from Adult Contemporary R&B, with all songs written and produced by Elevation Theory.
“This mixtape gave us the opportunity to not only showcase our talent as the artist but our ability to highlight our songwriting, original records, & production ability,” says group leader Kirjuan Freeman. “We’re more than just a band that’s the story we’ve been trying to reach across to the masses. Letting people know we have incredible talent & music.”
