Transcending the boundaries of genre, Insigniya has hit the ground running since the band’s start in January 2009. Taking influence from a vast range of musicians, Insigniya has been breaking down barriers in creating original music that cannot be classified simply as jazz, rock, or funk.
Insigniya is centered on the concept of channeling a special energy through an audience, creating a feeling of freedom and bliss, while giving people music to bob their heads and move their bodies to. This energy is found full force at shows and getting it recorded is the ultimate goal when the band is in the studio. With a constantly growing loyal fan base, Insigniya is attracting more and more people to shows, each providing a senses-saturating experience full of high energy.
In their third year, the band is unleashing their unique electro-funk-jazz sonic explorations throughout the northeast, having performed at some top clubs such as The Middle East Downstairs (Boston), Nectar's (Burlington, VT), Sullivan Hall (NYC), and Cafe Campus (Montreal, QC).
The group has been included on the bills for such festivals as StrangeCreek & Wormtown (MA), Disc Jam (MA), Camp Coldbrook (MA), The Big Up (NY), Liberate (VT), Bella Terra (NY), Evolvefest (NJ), Heads In Harmony (ME), Magnetic Gathering (NH), and Lesphestival (NY) alongside many national and international artists in both the live band and producer realms such as Papadosio, Dopapod, Consider The Source, Lespecial, Tipper, Heyoka, Ott, & Boombox.
Insigniya is ever-increasingly devoted to creating unique music that pushes the envelope in all genres, while sharing a collective love for music, positive progression, and good times with the masses.
