Number Nineteen features diverse and exciting instrumentation, wild and evolving textures floating above a deep pocket; classical strings, psychedelic musings, fingerstyle guitar, enticing vocals, electronic pulses, and lyrical tales collaborate to make surprising song structures and improvised moments of rock and roll.
Not limited to smoky bars and Brooklyn Basements, their first song "water" rose to the upper reaches of mp3.com. - ranked #18 overall on the site, it garnered over 90,000 downloads in 6 months.
Their debut CD "Suspension" follows that thread with more enticing melodies and grooves.
Each member contributes their pulling and pushing, wills and wiles, talents and terror: Sarth Calhoun on bass, synth, and g3 Marcus Righter on drums. Tony Diodore on violin and guitar. And Leah Coloff on cello and vocals.
In between bouts of studio alchemy they can be found lurking about underground Hip-Hop shows testing their sonic creations on unsuspecting MC's and fans alike.
