One of First Avenue and Radio K's Best New Bands of 2013

"Black Diet is your new favorite band"-Dave Campbell, The Current (Minnesota Public Radio)

"...Black Diet was the act that made the biggest impression at last month’s Best New Bands showcase at First Avenue."-Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune

"It's not often that a band can take me from zero to fan in 30 seconds..."-Andrea Swensson, The Current (Minnesota Public Radio)

PHO -

PHO is a Twin Cities funk band creating a new Minneapolis sound utilizing modern taste and classic influences to break musical boundaries.

PHO released their debut album 'CASH IT' in February 2015 and created buzz locally and nationally for recording such a mature and creative record as early 20 year olds. They reached out to friends Alan Evans of Soulive and John Davis, producer for Lettuce/Jo Jo Mayer to help achieve a sound that would resonate internationally. They have supported and toured with bands such as The Motet, Larry Graham and GCS, Jonathan Richman, Dopapod, and Oddisee. In early Early 2016 Prince found the band via Youtube and posted about them on his social media. This sparked a huge buzz for PHO around the globe and landed them an invite to Prince's Paisley Park Studio's opening for Larry Graham. Fans are watching this band eagerly into 2017 as they predict them to be one of the bigger names of the funk/festival scene.

Ayvah -

Ayvah is a collection of jazz-trained musicians and hip-hop lovers rooted in soul; as they combine all of these influential and eclectic sounds, Ayvah has emerged as a jazz-funk, neo-soul band. Ayvah creates music from a wide base of inspiration, including love, heartbreak, coming of age, sexuality, poetry, nature and more. Minneapolis/Saint Paul based, Ava McFarlane (lead vocals), Sam Rosenstone (keys), Ethan Yeshaya (bass), Joey C. Hays (drums) and Andy Schupp (guitar) bring a strong sense of artistry and collaboration, thus creating a sound that's intriguing to all music tastes. City Pages echoes Ayvah's attack on music, saying, "Minneapolis five-piece Ayvah’s is [hard] to pin down. That’s not just because they’ve hardly released any music, instead preferring to hone their live show. It’s due to the band’s eclecticism; their sound is an intoxicating fusion of jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, and more. Led by the preternaturally talented singer Ava McFarlane, the group reliably whips up kinetic, propulsive grooves, as attendees of their live shows have witnessed."

Ayvah's response to the eclecticism of their music is, "We don’t want to limit ourselves to any specific genre or taste— we just want to create art that is technical, thought out and charged with inspiration.”
