BandR&BHip Hop

Intrinsiq is groove personified...times nine! Hailing from the Washington, DC area and their beloved Howard University, Intrinsiq's soul, hip-hop, funk style breaks all barriers in today's music, and heralds a resurgence of the genuine truth in music from days past.


Dwelling within the elemental harmony of soul, funk, R&B, and hip hop is the hardcore velvet resonance of Intrinsiq. Don’t try to put this band in a box—with a vicious horn duo, angelic vocals, deep lyrics, and a rhythm section that will consume the senses, Intrinsiq is a cutting-edge musical experience that escapes stereotype. With the initial support of a largely collegiate Washingtonian fan-base, Intrinsiq burst on the scene in the Spring of 2007, connecting the musical influence of artists like Madeleine Peyroux to Al Green to Karen Clark-Sheard to Doug E. Fresh to Roberta Flack to Kanye West, and defined a new generation of sound. Intrinsiq’s growing audience of intergenerational soul "SIQ'ers" is proof positive that this group is more than just another band claiming to be unique. Each live performance pays homage to the blood, sweat, and tears of live funk musicianship while bringing the straight, un-cut social consciousness that is the global phenomenon of hip hop. With their first album release expected in 2008, Intrinsiq brings you the future of music.
