KNOWER are a searing hot music group from Los Angeles spearheading a new musical movement. The LA duo represent the best of drummer-producer Louis Cole and singer Genevieve Artadi. Currently touring their fourth album 'Life' , they opened for The Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2017 and continue to take over with their hard-hitting funk, cool chords, deep melodies and funky vocals into an incredibly imaginative off-world experience. Their all star 5-piece rotates Thundercat’s sideman Dennis Hamm (Keys), Sam Wilkes (Bass), Rai Thistlethwayte (Keys), Jacob Mann (Keys), Sam Gendel (Sax), and Thom Gill (Guitar). Combined with Louis Cole (Drums/Vox) and Genevieve Artadi’s iconic hot funk vocal style, everyone likes KNOWER becuase they never hold back and they never settle.
An entirely DIY act since formation in 2010, KNOWER’s viral videos, discography and live visual experience has become an international internet phenomena. Clocking millions of views, their live "band house sesh" hit over 3.5 million views in a week. Videos “F*** The Make Up Skip The Shower” feature on GTA V’s Fly Lo FM, to “THE GOVT. KNOWS” experience that will stick with you forever. Known for their live show, they take their infectious energy to another level. Quincy Jones best sums up why you can’t miss them, "KNOWER WILL BE LEAVIN' YA'LL ON YOUR KNEES, BEGGIN' FOR MORE."
"KNOWER stretches the boundaries between jazz, funk and sanity" - LA Weekly
Anomalie is the live electronic project of Nicolas Dupuis, a classically trained and highly versatile keyboardist and producer based in Montreal, QC.
After the release of his style defining project Metropole in June 2017, Anomalie will release the highly anticipated follow-up, Metropole Part II, in May 2018, completing the EP series inspired by his hometown of Montreal. Each song on both EPs alludes to a specific location in Montreal that’s meaningful to Nico and the city’s budding music scene.
While Anomalie is an independent artist, his music has grown to international recognition and has set the stage to tour internationally with ‘Anomalie Live,’ his 4-piece band bringing his productions to life on stage with energy-driven arrangements and original interpretations of his produced music. His independent success is a result of both acclaim from international music blogs and the reach of his self-made viral videos showcasing Metropole’s music and his own keyboard skills. The videos have reached close to 6M views and earned praise and attention from notable musicians such as Charlie Puth, Austin Mahone, Thundercat, Electro Deluxe, Lido, Big Wild, Big Gigantic, and more.
For Dupuis, music has been in his blood since an early age, leading to more than 17 years of experience studying classical and jazz piano performance. This led him to become the first person to be awarded the Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre Métropolitain, Rotterdams Philharmonisch) excellence grant in 2012. Anomalie also has been a guest instructor at Berklee School of Music in Boston and the Nexus Institute.
ThisSongIsSick - “There’s something about the Montreal-based artist’s music that hits you just right…His lush sound design and ear for melody is the perfect match for his insane piano skills, making for a one-of-a-kind sound that we can’t get enough of…If Mozart was a producer, he would be Anomalie.”
YourEDM - “Anomalie effortlessly blends elements of trap, hip hop, funk, jazz and classical music to create gorgeous works of art.”
