Cherub is a sexy electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80’s funk and pop-music from the future. The members of Cherub, Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance, with a common goal to share a little bit of sex, a little bit of drugs, and a whole lot of love with people across the globe.
Cherub’s music is a fresh electrified take on risqué pop music that brings to mind timeless artists such as Prince or Zapp and Roger, and more contemporary artists like Pharrell and The Dream. With a live show that is bouncing with energy, Cherub dances their way into the hearts of audiences from the first falsetto hook, until the very last delay filters out.
Named one of Paste Magazine’s “12 Tennessee Bands you Should Listen to Now,” Cherub has had a massive 2012, with appearances at such major festivals as Bonnaroo, SXSW, Electric Forest, Hangout Fest, Snowball Music Fest, and with STS9 at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
After receiving a warm response worldwide to the digital release of the band’s first record, Man of the Hour, and touring throughout the US and Mexico, Cherub released their follow up MoM & DaD in February 2012. The album includes the smash viral hit “Doses and Mimosas,” which in August 2012 hit #1 on Hype Machine’s most talked about songs chart.
The latest batch of Cherub songs brings a fresh, uptempo electro feel to the familiar pop sensibilities showcased on their first record. Jordan Kelley’s studio production, clever songcraft, and silky smooth falsetto are complimented perfectly by Jason Huber’s live production and tube-driven guitar work. Cherub’s versatility in songwriting and dance music production blurs conventional genre barriers. Ranging from grooving heartfelt ballads to risqué club bangers, Cherub takes the throwback vibes of old drum machines and washed out keyboards and marries them with timeless writing and a very modern approach to music production and performance. Playful guitar licks and lush synthesizer textures dance around in the mix, as listeners are treated to sing-a-long hook after hook the entire way through the tunes.
Mystery Skulls: Mystery Skulls is the name of Luis Dubuc (The Secret Handshake)’s new project. Formed in 2011, It is a blend of funk, soul, and electronic dance beats.
Dubuc has released several promotional videos for Mystery Skulls, mixing his songs with retro footage of Star Wars, He-Man, and other classics. However, Mystery Skulls has only recently gained notoriety after a Phoenix Wright video was posted with the song, “Money”.
Mind the Gap:
A Korean, a Sri Lankan, a Mexican, and a Jew from Cleveland. 4 musicians from 4 corners of the world aiming to shotgun blast through the insipid airwaves of current music using acoustic harmonies fused with modern technology. Mind the Gap formed in 2008 when singer/songwriter duo, Cahn & Yang, met music producers, Ru & Ozzy, of The Bird Call. The collaboration was formed with the help of Music Supervisor, Jonathan McHugh, and the group quickly got to work on main title songs for several films including Mass Animation: Live Music and The Education of Charlie Banks. They were also commissioned to write theme songs for TV shows on Discovery, A&E, History, VH1, and Playboy TV. While licensing music, they have also been performing across the country with shows in LA, NYC, and Chicago, to name a few. Mind the Gap played at High Sierra Music Festival ‘10, CMJ Music & Film Marathon ’10, and Canadian Music Fest ’11. While on tour, they received media attention, being awarded AOL’s Spinner Download of the day. They are set to release their debut album, ‘The Good Fight’ in May 2011. The group rests their heads in Los Angeles, CA.
