Lingo is a band with their own musical language, as their name would indicate. There are familiar elements, for sure. But their melodic song writing, mixed with ripping guitar solos, old school funk groove and fusion jazz, soulful vocals and thoughtful lyrics, results in a sound unlike anything else out there. You can tell Lingo has something new to say.
The band recently released their first collection of new music since 2010. The six-track EP, titled “Rearrange,” is the first release featuring the band’s newest members, guitarist Nick Johnson (of Col. Bruce Hampton Band, Last Waltz Ensemble) and drummer Greg Perry (of The Soundmen, I.O.Z.). Since their last release, Lingo has shared the stage with Jimmy Herring Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Kofi Burbridge, and Dr. Roosevelt Collier.
