Elevations consists of founding members and rhythm section Brett Williams, Anton DeFade, and George Heid III in addition to the horn section of Michael Stephenson and Benny Benack III. The Pittsburgh-native group is quickly gaining a reputation for being one of the most exciting and versatile groups in the young generation of today. Their music is firmly rooted in the jazz tradition combined with influences across the map: Hip-Hop, R&B, Funk, Classical, Rock, and Pop. Each member comes from a different musical background, which contributes to the unique sound of Elevations. The group recently performed at the 55th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival. They have also collaborated with Grammy Award winning artist, Ralph Lalama and have backed up other great artists including Sean Jones, Dwayne Dolphin, and Russ Miller.
