Electrik Ants:

Imagine if Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Lettuce all hopped in a rocket ship. The result wouldn’t be far from the Ants’ vibe. The Dallas-based septet combines sax, DJ, drums, bass, and three members who rotate between rapping, singing, guitar, keys, synth, and percussion. Hold on to your butts.

Chilldren of Indigo:

Funky… soulful… psychedelic… head-banging… hip-hop? With influences that vary from Black Sabbath to Kendrick Lamar, Chilldren of Indigo are a hard band to sum up and even harder to miss. The Dallas natives are currently working on their 4th studio album after finishing a multi-state summer tour.

Able Delilah:

Able Delilah is an Arlington-based soul/funk/hip-hop fusion band consisting of Texas natives Kane Vinson, Samson Robinson, and Drake Fanning. Kane and Samson have been writing together since 2012, having explored multiple projects together before establishing Able Delilah in 2017.

Sonic Buffalo:

If Zeus had sex with Aphrodite and Achilles recorded it, it would sound like shit. Sonic Buffalo is the love child of Scientology and that cult that died in that fire? Waco? That’s Sonic Buffalo. Come hard. Stay harder.

Kyle Hollingsworth (of String Cheese Incident) ‑ Dallas, TX atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

Deep Ellum Art Company Presents:

Kyle Hollingsworth

(Keyboardist of The String Cheese Incident)
[rock | jam | bluegrass]

Tickets on Sale Saturday, July 13th @ 10am

ROOTS RUN DEEP!

About Kyle:
30 years ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. Since then, with a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent, with the ability to contribute, collaborate, compose, and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has allowed him unrestricted access to the world of music, and has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres.

Those who’ve seen SCI know that they can jerk from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. “In the jam world, where there are no set ways of doing things, we’re not afraid to move in and out of genres,” he says, “and because of that I’ve learned to be creative, not only onstage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to.”

While his versatility and quick-study nature have become his signature skills with SCI, they have also proved tremendously helpful on stage during collaborations with a bunch of major acts, including Paul Simon, Bruce Hornsby, Bob Weir, Little Feat, and banjo master Bela Fleck. One summer he toured with Phil Lesh in a band that also included Steve Kimock, John Molo, and Warren Haynes. In the summer of 2008 he spent the summer touring with the “mickey hart band”.This group featured Mickey Hart,George Porter,steve kimock and many others .In another amazing highlight, Kyle also toured with Mike Clark in a band that starred nearly all the original Head Hunters.

These gigs prove that Hollingsworth is as unafraid to step out of the limelight as he is to step into it. “When I play with these performers it’s about showcasing them, to support the main role in the best possible way. Seasoned musicians can be tasty and laid back, too!” Kyle’s first solo album release in 2004 reflected his jazz tastes. Titled Never Odd or Even, Joshua Redman and Robert Randolph guested, among others. Never or Odd or Even was the recording Hollingsworth had always wanted to make since he was a kid. In addition to his jazz influences, the album’s music demonstrates Kyle’s ability to seamlessly fuse genres.

His new Summer 09 release, titled “The There’s Now,” finds the musician coming in to his own. With solid song material and a slamming new band, Kyle is making his mark in the new, always-evolving music scene. “Then There’s Now” delivers a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes and seamlessly displays his growth as a musician and as a songwriter. Also look for Kyle on tour with his trio DNA Land this spring throughout the Midwest. DNA Land offers loop based funk and hip hop beats and features Damien Hines (drums) and Dan Schwindt (bass/guitar).

The Motet: Speed of Light Tour at Deep Ellum Art Company atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

Deep Ellum Art Company Presents:

The Motet: Speed Of Light Tour in Dallas, TX on September 14th, 2019

Tickets on Sale FRIDAY, JUNE 28TH!

The Motet
[funk | soul | dance]
Feels Like: Galactic, Funk You, Lettuce

A concert or an album can unlock another world, if you let it. The Motet respect and revere this time-honored phenomenon. Fusing fiery funk, simmering soul, and improvisational inventiveness, the Denver, CO seven-piece—Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keyboards], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Parris Fleming [trumpet], and Drew Sayers [saxophone]—have continually provided an escape for listeners over the course of seven full-length albums since 1998, including their latest release Totem and with an upcoming 2018 release. That extends to countless sold out shows and festivals everywhere from Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Summer Camp to All Good Music Festival and High Sierra Music Festival as well as 16 consecutive years of themed Halloween concerts.

“When you’re listening to us, I want your mind to be taken away from wherever you are during the day and into some other place,” states Dave. “It’s all about that.”

After quietly building a diehard and devoted following, 2016 represented a watershed year for the musicians. They welcomed Lyle and Drew into the fold and released Totem, which drew acclaim from Relix, AXS, 303 Magazine, and many others. For the first time, The Motet sold out the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater—the holy grail venue of their hometown—cataloged on Live at Red Rocks. Sell-outs followed everywhere from The Fillmore (San Francisco) and Tipitina’s (New Orleans) to Brooklyn Bowl (Brooklyn), Park West (Chicago), and Crystal Ballroom (Portland). The group locked into an unbreakable groove.

“We’ve never been a band that just blew up overnight,” Dave goes on.
“We’ve been very tenacious about our movement forward. We’ve been through many different iterations throughout the years. Right now, it feels like we’ve got the lineup that’s making an impression on our scene. Lyle is the perfect match for us. He’s got musicality and this raw energy we all resonate with. He ignited this spark to put work in and write inspiring music.”

That spark lit again in 2017. Following Jam Cruise and a second Red Rocks gig, the band fired up the new single “Supernova.” Strutting between hypnotic horns and swaggering guitars, the track sees The Motet blast off to another galaxy. Quickly racking up over 150k Spotify streams in a month’s time, it instantly excited fans.

New Album DEATH OR DEVOTION now available!
