"Listen Up: Colorado Band Heads Out"




Listen
Extending musical capabilities through technology, Listen is an electronic symphony interlaced with conscious hip-hop and powerful polyrhythms. They provide a musically diverse appeal by extracting elements from hip-hop, dub, drum 'n' bass, funk and live electronica in their high-energy performances.

Listen streams effortlessly through ambient atmospheric themes and jungle rhythms for a unique approach to the live electronica movement. By creating original live loops and samples within each performance, they are breaking new grounds in originality and diversity.

The complexity that makes up the Listen sound is supported through the constant rotation of musicianship and lyricism. The band frequently switches instrumentation allowing for a multitude of unique sounds and musical landscapes in each composition. Each of the members also writes and performs their own lyrics, creating a variety of moods and topics the audience can relate to.

Merging several musical genres into their experimental sound, this act appeals to a wide variety of listeners. By streaming live multimedia, their performances consist of both visual and audio attention for a musical phenomenon beyond the typical hip-hop presentation.

Based out of Ft. Collins CO, the quartet has performed over 150 shows on the musical syndicate including performances with De La Soul, G. Love and the Special Sauce, Talib Kweli, Maceo Parker and Israel Vibrations. They have garnished a large national following and are taking the musical market by storm. Their new studio album is expected to be released this spring, with fresh tracks and a positive musical message.

Bio

Listen is more than a band; it is an evolving musical project. Comprised of four unique individuals, Listen is a combination of diverse styles, visions and talents. Each member of Listen plays an instrument and takes turns rhyming (with the help of looping pedals and samplers) and by extracting elements from electronica, dub, drum and bass, funk, hip hop, and much more, they distort musical boundaries while developing a truly original style.

They have performed with many well-known musical acts, including G. Love and Special Sauce, Maceo Parker, Israel Vibrations, Blackalicious, De La Soul, John Browns Body, Talib Kweli, Garaj Mahal, Atmosphere, Culture and many more. Listen's new album "One Piece Puzzle" has sold over 3,000 copies at shows alone in less than a year. Currently touring throughout the western United States, Listen is spreading their aural vibrations and securing their future in the collections and memories of all who appreciate musical innovation.
