Still working on that hot first release.



Vocalist Maiya Sykes, guitarist Nick Block, bassist Frank Abraham, and drummer Gene Coye originally combined forces with the idea of working as a music-production team writing songs for others. Soon thereafter, they discovered the vibe among them felt so right that they abandoned the idea of letting others perform their songs and became The Endangered.

Viktor Aaron from summerizes their sound perfectly, stating, “[they] strike the right balance of the old school soul, jazz, rock and adult contemporary, created with the care and construction of the pre-Pro Tools days but with just enough nods to hip-hop and indie rock to place their music in the here and now.”

The Endangered’s distinctive blend is derived from a diverse collection of individual musical experiences. Maiya has lent her vocal prowess to an array of top acts including The Roots, Joss Stone, Fantasia, Common, Allen Stone and Macy Gray. Gene’s rhythmic precision has been utilized by greats such as Carlos Santana, Flying Lotus, Bilal, Larry Carlton, and Stanley Clarke, to name a few.  Frank’s symphonic bass tone has earned him the opportunity to collaborate with acts like The Game, Jessy J and Raheem DeVaughn. Nick, the studio nerd of the group, owns a recording facility and co-writes with prominent writers such as Viktor Krauss, Mike Ulvila, Zach Adam, Matt Bauer and Miles Mosley.

The Endangered released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut EP in 2012, produced by Steven Miller (Dave Matthews, P!nk, Jack Johnson). They are currently self producing a full length album due out in early 2015.

The Endangered EP is available at iTunes and other digital service providers along with the band’s website and CDBaby. To learn more about The Endangered visit or follow them on Facebook and Twitter. For press inquiries please email and for booking contact
