The Consonance Band Bio
Love hip-hop and jazz music? Check out The Consonance - a new jazz band that started off as six musical students from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!
Jazz & Hip-Hop
Smooth melodic lines, catchy lyrics, and danceable grooves - those three phrases pretty much sum up a new hip-hop/jazz ensemble (that's a fancy word for BAND) called The Consonance. The Consonance began as six jazz students from Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, meeting for a carefree jamming environment. They began writing songs and quickly formed the hip-hop/jazz band. Sensing great chemistry early in their song-writing process, they began recording and gigging immediately. The Consonance released their first EP, More Alive EP, in March 2009.
Growing & Changing
They have collectively made music their life and are constantly growing & changing together. The Consonance have six members from different walks of life, with six different musical backgrounds. In every song you can hear six forces working as one: Jazz, Funk, Pop, Rock, R&B and Hip-Hop. The Consonance have combined all genres to create one that is truly their own.
Cover & Original Songs
Along with constantly writing new material, The Consonance are playing numerous cover & original shows all over Canada. In July 2010, they are embarking on their first Western Canadian tour to promote their first full-length album, Come The Day, which was recorded at the end of March 2010.
