“Abundance”: The Nth Power Releases Debut Album
“The band, who mixes influences of modern R&B, Hip-hop, Rock and Pop music, first came together at an after-hours jam session in New Orleans, during the 2012 Jazz Fest.”
The young eclectic funk band The Nth Power announced they will be releasing their first full-length album “Abundance” on November 13, 2015.
The band, who mixes influences of modern R&B, Hip-hop, Rock and Pop music, first came together at an after-hours jam session in New Orleans, during the 2012 Jazz Fest.
At the center of the Nth Power’s activity is drummer Nikki Glaspie, a Virginia native known around the Crescent City as a long-time member of Dumpstaphunk, but also spent five years touring and recording with Beyonce and worked with other prime time artists like Chaka Khan, Maceo Parker, Ravi Coltrane among others.
Glaspie is joined by vocalist/guitarist Nick Cassarino, bassist Nate Edgar, West African drummer Weedie Braimah and keyboardist/singer Courtney “Jay’Mel” Smith.
“It was just a put-together band,” Glaspie said in a 2014 interview with OffBeat. “We played at the Maple Leaf, at like three in the morning, and when we did a sound check, we all just kind of looked at each other like ‘Whoa, that was crazy. What’s going on?’ By the end of the night, we were like ‘This is a band. We have to do something.’”
“Abundance,” the band’s debut album after close to three years of increasingly touring around the country, was produced by Ira Schickman and recorded in New Orleans, at the Lower Garden District studio The Music Shed, over a period of 18 months.
The Nth Power is currently touring the country, information and tour dates can be found on their website: thenthpowermusic.com.
