Diddy, The Polyphonic Spree, etc.), yet possesses a sound distinctly separate from any of their individual projects.
INTUIT formed in 2011 in Boulder, CO and began to shape their sound and intentions together on the campus of Naropa University.

Their song writing crosses genres with a rich improvisational component that keeps a fresh live energy to their wide repertoire of original music. With heart-warming lulls, climactic peaks, and endless stylistic shape–shifting, Intuit delivers a captivating groove that all can enjoy.
