UPS DELIVERS THE FUNK
Music has the power to communicate a message across geography and cultures.
Starting this band has been straight out of the opening scene to a Guy Ritchie movie. After Elliott returned from traveling in Europe in late 2017, the gear he left behind had turned into a frankenstein-like situation as Jordin set up the studio and learned how to record on his own.
Meanwhile they started playing at a local Ethiopian bar called Nazareth, a spot that Elliott used to hang out at on Saturday nights. They kept growing the night by collaborating with other musicians. Fast forward a few months and they're on the stage at the Cameron House, with like 6 players. By the end of December they put the finishing touches on their debut cassette Moving Fast 4 U.
And the good times have just been rolling ever since. Our lineup has changed a bit over the past year, but here are the cast of characters who have contributed to United Power Soul:
David Lara Rovira
Regis Cardoso da Silva
Binod Singh Jr.
