Misnomer is an instrumental group based out of Atlanta, Georgia. It began as a collective of students from the University of Georgia who channeled their influences from classical, jazz, hip-hop and R&B into something unique. The group is fronted by saxes, trumpets, and trombones; it is backed by a rhythm section of keyboards, bass, and drums. Misnomer draws influence from artists such as OutKast, Anderson .Paak, NO BS! Brass Band, and GroundUp Music. According to Flagpole Magazine, “[Misnomer’s] music is as exciting as it is uncategorizable. The horn-centric outfit blends jazz fusion, deep funk, instrumental hip hop, and modern classical to create an intoxicating sound that’s unlike anything else in town.”

Misnomer has shared the stage with several nationally-touring acts including Here Come The Mummies, Turkuaz, CBDB, and Marshall Gilkes. The band has been recognized as Athens' Artist of the Year, and Neighborhood, their first full-length album, has been recognized as Athens' Album of the Year. Their latest record, Strength in Numbers, was released in December 2019.
