Band Rock Funk




This band has no press


EP - "For Real" (2012)
LP - "Pout" (2013)

Singles "Genius" and "Wake Up" have received significant airplay on Cleveland FM radio. Those and a third single, "Slide" have all been performed on Cleveland Fox 8 television and on Cleveland NBC 3 television.



Pout started when Teddy moved from Detroit to Cleveland and noticed the remarkable opportunity for a mash-up between the electronic-influenced funk of the Motor City and the straight-ahead rock and blues of the Rock Capital. Michelle co-founded the band, provided a very clear and out-front female lead, and Efrain brought a Latin influence to the band's drum kit shortly afterward.

This formula led to the group's quick rise to the top of the Cleveland club scene in 2011. It was time for Pout to make a record.

After recording their first E.P. at a studio startup in 2012, the group wasn't entirely satisfied, feeling that the E.P. was representative of all styles, but not the mash-up they wanted. So Pout went back to writing with a more balanced, opportunistic approach, retaining multi-platinum producer Michael Seifert for their second effort. This self-titled L.P. that has received unanimous praise.

Today the group supports its two albums throughout the Cleveland, Detroit, Columbus, Canton, and Dayton areas, having entertained thousands at high-profile dates like the Columbus Park Street Festival, the Cleveland Rock City Festival, and the Millenial Songwriters concert at Cleveland's Playhouse Square.
