Show Info

With a contemporary fusion edge and a Brooklyn party band?s street-cred, Snarky Puppy has become known for their swooping dynamics, taking the listener through a world of funk, rock, lush harmonies and jazz melodicism. Snarky Puppy has gone from an underground secret to an internationally respected name in instrumental music, due in fact to their recent award for Best R&B Performance for their song ?Something,? featuring vocalist Lalah Hathaway. Snarky Puppy is a group of musicians from different cultures and traditions and this convergence has naturally established a series of combinations and a system of balance that instantly draws listeners to the music ? raw funk and sensitive dynamics, relentless pocket and lyrical melodicism, lush harmony and soulful simplicity, and most importantly, a delicate mixture of composition and improvisation. The group?s latest, groundUP, was recorded live in the studio, in front of a 40-person audience. As their unique recording practices illustrate, they are a band most at home when there is an audience in front of them.
