Funk masters Lettuce deliver a new performance video of “Shine” from the studio where they recorded their latest masterpiece UNIFY. Within the first few seconds of the track, fans are met with what could be described as sunshine, hence the name of the song. The GRAMMY-nominated sextet of Lettuce—Adam Deitch (drums), Ryan Zoidis (saxophone), Adam ‘Shmeeans’ Smirnoff (guitar), Erick ‘Jesus’ Coomes (bass), Nigel Hall (keyboards/vocals), Eric ‘Benny’ Bloom (trumpet)—came together to present what a day in the studio might look like.

As Shmeeans describes, “Lett's go for a ride in the whip and turn it up! “Shine” has both that bumpin’ and relaxing feel all at once. Golden era hip hop feels with a heavy nod to A Tribe Called Quest. Boom bap, a baseline line to make you move, Rhodes, Melodic Horns and Wes guitar octaves keep this one feeling like the warm sun on your face.”

Lettuce will take their plethora of new material out on the road (and across the pond) for the Unify World Tour. The tour picks up again this weekend in Brooklyn, NY at Brooklyn Comes Alive before heading out on their European leg of the Unify World Tour on September 20th in London. A full list of tour dates is below and ticket information can be found at lettucefunk.com/tour.

“Music is the great unifier and we produced this album with the intention of bringing people together in truth, respect and love.” Erick “Jesus” Coomes
