Biography

In Motion Collective delivers a powerful and eclectic blend of afro-funk and soul with attention to authenticity. The group pulls from a myriad of sounds, drawing influence from afrobeat pioneers Fela Kuti and Tony Allen, ethiojazz legend Mulatu Astatke and soul icons such as Isaac Hayes and Roy Ayers.

Formed as a trio in 2010, the group is now comprised of a 10-piece, horn-heavy powerhouse that is guaranteed to excite the dancefloor. The groups anticipated debut 7" single is due out October 2013 on Ohio-based indie label, Colemine Records. A follow up full length LP is in the works.

IMC has been asked to share the stage with heavyweights such as the Budos Band, Lee Fields, Sierra Leone's Refugee Allstars and Toubab Krewe. The group is currently nominated for 'Best Jazz Artist' for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards.

"In Motion brings a fresh attitude to its music, which combines empathetic precision and freewheeling adventure." - George Varga (Union Tribune)

"An instrumental combo that merges steamy Afro-beat grooves with rainy-day jazz vibes." - Peter Holslin (City Beat)
