Letter B has announced their return to The Top Hat on Friday, Sept 1st. The show is celebrating the band’s most recent EP release, entitled Catch Me When I Fall.
The Missoula-based ensemble is on the cutting edge of melodic production: blending multiple genres with liberated spoken-word lyrics. The result is a collection of funky, dance-worthy tracks, sprinkled with enlightened poetry. Check out the Letter B website for more information on the band and purchasing the album.
Ever since its inception in 2013 in Missoula, Montana, Letter B has never stopped. Born from a thought and a beat, a cadence and a rhyme – a bouncing ball bellowing under the big sky – the folk/rock/indie-hip- pop group draws inspiration from the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Atmosphere and Ray Lamontagne to blend its down-home roots with a global perspective.
Jarod Kintz once said, “I want to be a creature that’s half bee, half the letter b. that way I can pollinate the world with my literacy.” Comprised of a preacher’s progeny, duo Jordan Lane (lead vocals, guitar) and Katie C. (vocals) bring their gospel feel alongside Michael English (drums), Lhanna Writesel (saxophone), and Dillon Johns (bass) to create an endless supply of energy. Katie C’s spoken word poem from which the band draws its name can be found on its debut album “Moving Forward.”
“Letter B is a band that inspires movement and freedom, and we just like to celebrate. Our album Moving Forward is about the next level of consciousness. It’s a freedom of togetherness.”
Josh Farmer Band
Missoula’s home-grown Josh Farmer Band have been bringing their unique blend of jazz, funk, rock, and soul music to the local scene since Fall 2011. The band has quickly gained a growing audience, regularly headlining shows at Missoula venues like The Top Hat, The Union Club, The Badlander, Sean Kelly’s, and Monk’s.
Their debut EP album was released in September 2012 and has gathered praise both for Josh’s original songwriting and for compelling instrumental performances by the whole band. The CD is available at Rockin’ Rudy’s and Ear Candy Music, or digitally through iTunes and the Facebook page’s Music Store.
The “Video EP” is a collection of music videos released in April 2013 that make up Josh Farmer Band’s second release. These videos are not intended to complement a CD release, but rather to present the new music in a performance setting, to see and hear this dynamic band as they truly are. The four short films of the band playing for a live audience of friends can be viewed on YouTube and Reverbnation.
With a message of unity, equality and love for a creative community, their exciting, one-of-a-kind, live performances are known to incite vibes of happiness and freedom. Let go through joyful dance and sing along while Josh and his band do what they enjoy most!
