Great Caesar, a seven-piece indie rock band out of NYC, brings together lush horns and tight harmonies to create music that is vulnerable, honest, and full of energy.

Biography

Great Caesar aims for the heart with a vulnerable blend of brass, voice, and indie-rock, drawing from acts like Arcade Fire and Beirut to create music that confronts the things that really matter: love, legacy, and the complexity of human relationships.

The NYC band’s 2014 debut single phenomenon, "Don’t Ask Me Why", combines art and activism in a video that juxtaposes the civil rights movement of the 1960s with today’s fight for sexual equality. Supported by figures as varied as Russell Simmons, Deepak Chopra, Arsenio Hall, and Superbowl champion and LGBT advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo, the $50,000+ Kickstarter-funded video has already challenged hundreds of thousands to take a stand for love and equality. The video has reached over 250,000 views on YouTube with over 2,000 likes from YouTube users, and is gaining hundreds of positive comments.

The band’s most recent studio offering, a self-titled EP, was released on October 7, 2014. It was produced by Griffin Rodriguez (Beirut, Modest Mouse, A Hawk and a Hacksaw). They recently completed a month-long national tour, and are gearing up for a full-length release and supporting tour in the spring.
