Bio

Fort Knox Recordings artist Backbeat Underground hit 2018 with the label premiere of “She Don’t Love Me (Like I Do)” featuring Aaron “Ab” Abernathy - an allegory of strife and social unrest in modern America, told through the lens of a love gone bad. The track feature a five-piece horn section with some Washington’s most in-demand jazz musicians, and an arrangement inspired by classic Stax/Volt releases, all recorded live to tape as a single unit.
Backbeat Underground builds on Washington’s timeless soul traditions by introducing neo-soul-jazz elements to their songwriting, with booty-shaking live performances and genre-defying collaborations.
The band is proud to have performed at iconic Washington venues like The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Lincoln Theatre, and serve as stewards of the funk at every one of DC’s homegrown Funk Parade festival.
