After being named one of Relix's "On The Verge” artists, the premiere music outlet has gotten on board again with Asheville NC favorites The Get Right Band. They ran the exclusive of the band’s "Motivation" video, the first video from WHO’S IN CHARGE?, which came out August 5. The band celebrates the release with a show in their hometown at Isis Music Hall.
In addition to Relix, the band has been lauded by the prestigious NPR show World Café and named “Best New Band” of 2015 by Home Grown Music Network. WHO’S IN CHARGE? will reach even more fans as the band has expanded their sound, which combines clever and catchy lyrics with fearless improvisation, seamlessly blending elements of rock n’ roll, funk, reggae and psychedelia. The album just hit radio last week and is already getting airplay around the country on tastemaker stations like North Carolina’s WNCW, New York's WBAI, Colorado's KVNF, and Ontario's CIUT.
The Get Right Band is built on the musical brotherhood between Silas Durocher, a classically trained composer, and bassist, Jesse Gentry. With the addition of Jian-Claude Mears, a powerhouse drummer, GRB rounded out their sound. Who’s in Charge? is produced by frontman Durocher (vocals, guitar), Julian Dreyer and The Get Right Band. Recorded in their hometown of Asheville at Echo Mountain Studio (The Smashing Pumpkins, T-Bone Burnett), the LP was engineered and mixed by Dreyer who has worked with The Avett Brothers and Zac Brown Band. It was mastered by six-time Grammy winner Brian Lucey known for his work with The Black Keys and Beck.
The Get Right Band is currently on a nationwide tour in support of their album. The act has played around the United States and the Caribbean with an energetic and unparalleled live show, and have played festivals and venues including Nashville’s Music City Roots TV Show, Asheville’s The Orange Peel, Savannah’s Live Wire, FloydFest and more. They’ve also had the honor of sharing the stage with well-known acts including Galactic, Rusted Root, Victor Wooten Band, Martin Barre (of Jethro Tull), Turkuaz, Mike Dillon Band, Jeff Sipe Trio, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Jeff Coffin’s Mutet, Larry Keel, and Bobby Lee Rodgers.
