About Vertical Current
Vertical Current is not your typical quintet despite the very unassuming instrumentation (bass/drums/keys/trumpet/guitar). Since the start of the band in the fall of 2009, Vertical Current has performed with new and notable artists such as Sunday Best winner Jessica Reedy, BET Music Matters winner Leah Smith, singer/songwriter Jeff Murrell, and 103.9 fm host Desiree “Dezzie” Neal. The band also entered and won the 2010 Jesus Rocks competition in Maryland. In 2011, with the help of local hit-maker, Donald Robinson, the band put together a short compilation of their eclectic sound and released it as their official debut EP, “aRe” (see link below). Individually, the members of the band have traveled throughout the world and performed/recorded with a variety of top billed artists including Earth Wind & Fire, Roberta Flack, The Roots, Michael McDonald, Lauryn Hill, Miley Cyrus, Sara Bareilles, Eddie Levert, Jill Scott, J. Cole, Guy, Tye Tribbett and Mary Mary to name a few. Vertical Current, also known as “VC”, has plans to infiltrate the many facets of the music scene including film soundtracks and scores. You can also expect to see the band in its augmented configuration otherwise known as “Super VC”. So, get ready to have a good time because VC can party hard and soothe your soul. Anyway you slice it, VC brings the mass appeal of Pop music, the charisma of Jazz, the groove of Funk, and the soul of Gospel!
“Funky and crisp music that makes your body move and your mind melt, Vertical Current takes old and new and makes it groove…pleasure to master the project.”-Mike Tarsia, Mike Tarsia Recording
“We ARE because He is.” Vertical Current’s latest EP “aRe”- the perfect amalgamation of brass, strings, percussion, and vocals. Selections from “aRe” are frequently heard on each of my radio shows ranging from Urban Contemporary to Inspirational to COOL JAZZ, as well as in my own personal listening –There’s something to suit all musical needs! – Karen Rogers “K-Ro” of The Vision Radio Show WIFI 1460 and Morning Joy and JOY Night on WIMG 1300
“It’s our dream to travel the world spreading love and hope, and to restore a sense of purity and decency to the music of today.” – Chris Stevens, Founder
