Over the past three years Amalgamation have revived the creative element of the Mississippi Delta in the unexpected manifestation of jazz/rock. They have cultivated their art in such a manner to allow them to reach listeners of all walks of life who have embraced the unlikely, yet passionate sound of this intrepid ensemble.
The term Amalgamation reflects the band members’ wide range of musical styles that combine to create their unmistakable sound. The motley members contribute Jazz, Rock, Blues, and Pop influences that fuse to form a new and interesting amalgam of sound.
Amalgamation’s music is edgy and complex, spanning dynamically from whispering pianos to screaming fortes. Although there are centralized concepts and melodies, the band’s original compositions are expressively based around group and individual improvisation. The spontaneous nature of their music makes each performance engaging, exciting and uniquely different from the next.
In just the three years of the band’s existence, Amalgamation has released the debut EP “Therefore” (2009) and recently recorded basic tracks for the forthcoming first full-length album “Factual Reality” (Spring 2011). This along with a string of reputable performances and new fans growing by the day shows that Amalgamation is quickly setting the foundation for continued success in music.
