Eric Buell and Eric Warren met in 2007 while working together at coffee shop in Sacramento, Ca.. After-work-sound-collaborations with Warren playing guitar over Buell’s beats and glitches led to the formation of E-Squared. A year later, while attending a Tortoise show, Warren met drummer Anthony Ordonez. His ability to match programmed beats with a drum kit gave the band a more organic and original sound. Not long after meeting Ordonez the group was joined by trumpet player Eric Johnson. His smooth melodic lines added to the organic sound in addition to making it a bit “jazzier”. The group collaborated in 2010 to create their debut album, “The Cover Up”, and have been playing live shows in it’s support. In 2011 the band’s hard work paid off when they received a SAMMIE for Outstanding Jazz. The members of E-Squared are committed to creating great music in a live setting in addition to creating artful, quality recordings.
