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 (aka Nicolas Dupuis) is a keyboardist and producer based in Montreal. Music has been in his blood since an early age, leading to more than 17 years of experience studying classical and jazz piano performance. He also became the first person to be awarded the Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre Métropolitain, Rotterdams Philharmonisch) excellence grant in 2012.
It was around that time he decided a change was in order. Using the moniker Anomalie, he began producing tracks infused with a combination of classical music, jazz, hip hop, funk, fusion and various electronic elements. Sounds hectic, but Nicolas pulls it off seamlessly as evidenced on his debut self-titled EP from 2013, and further confirmed by nearly 2M views his performance videos garnered on Facebook. Anomalie then made his debut on Lowtemp with single "Odyssée" in April of 2016. Soon after he began touring with Gramatik as his keyboard player on live shows, while also working on his second EP.
The Métropole EP is available now in all digital stores.
The eight track EP takes the listener on a soulful journey beginning with a piano only introductory track. Each track hammers in Anomalie's signature sound, driving home the fact that this kid has a lot of talent. - YourEDM
Métropole is a glorious mixture of both classical and experimental jazz, funk, hip hop, and electronica. This may sound pretty intense, but Anomalie's skill as a musician pulls it off miraculously.
In these eight tracks Anomalie manages to showcase everything his music is about: incredible creative energy combined with songwriting techniques from jazz, and a foundation of contemporary beats ranging from hip hop to broken beat. - The Music Essentials
When Anomalie hits the stage his material comes to life with energy-driven arrangements for a 4-piece band.
