The four members, (Kevin Rohweder – drums, Nate Rohweder – guitar, Eli Scott – bass, Greg Andersen – keyboards) of Nomadic owe their growing popularity to their highly captivating and energetic live performances as well as their epic and diverse song structures that range from electronica to anthemic rock. Nomadic’s diverse range of influences create an intriguingly new blend of progressive rock, electronica, and funk. These styles all lend to Nomadic’s addictive and undeniably fun grooves, blistering peaks and melodic ballads that are unique and immense. Nomadic brings an energy packed live sound that is gripping from start to finish. It is an experience not easily forgotten.
Electric Soul Pandemic:
Electric Soul Pandemic are a Greensboro, NC based quintet. ESP has cultivated an energetic, inspired sound w/ a boisterous lineup of musicians poised and determined. The songwriting center of the band revolves around Jaybird Beverly (keys, vox) and Derek Cobb (gtr, vox). Randy Elliot (gtr, fx), Justin Heter (drums, vox) and Scott Nichols (bass) provide a solid, aggressive backbone. In October 2013 ESP self-released their debut studio effort, the full length “Communications”. “Communications” debuted on www.Jambands.com radio charts at #6, Home Grown Music Network’s at #7 and the band are featured in the Dec 2013 issue of Relix Magazine as an Artist on the Rise and “Communications” was selected as Editor’ Choice for the “Off the Tracks” album review. “The album incorporates elements of late night “livetronica” offerings, cogent songwriting and a sense of organic improvisational excellence lacking in most corners of the jam universe these days. Featuring sharp arrangements that vary in mood and perspective coupled with a sensibility and grooves for dancing, the seven tracks of “Communications” prove to be an excellent first offering.”
