Wade Hutson is an incredible composer, singer-songwriter, and performer. He was born in Deleware, and went to music school in Connecticut, spending tireless hours studying musical relationships andrhythmic structures. He actually designed a "grid" outlining the mathematical relationships between all scales. He teaches workshops in music theory, musical sacred geometry, and sound healing. He is also an incredible on several instuments including the bass, djembe percussion, and keyboards. He is featured on all three in the album "Supported" and has an unreleased electronic album which has some great tracks. Wade and Singing Bear met in January 2007 in Farifax, CA at 19 Broadway playing their very first set at an opne-mic. Four months later they recorded "Supported" which has already reached far and wide.
Kevin Njikam is a spiritual sorcerer of the electric guitar and keyboards. He is a smooth, seamless composer and performer of a sort of Wes Montgomery, Herbie Hancock, Jerry Garcia School. He moves in and out of rifs with amazing ease and has, along with Wade, composed several of the Aumnibus original jazzy fusion jam tunes. Most of his electric guitar work that is featured on "Supported" was done in one or two takes with very little pre-production. Together Kevin and Wade formed Aumnibus in Connecticut with a slant towards electic tribal jazz. They both met Singing Bear in January and following their intuition, fused their variety of music with his more folky, reggae, world beat style. Now they have emerged as a combination of all of it, a brand of music they call, World Tribal Folk Jazz Fusion.
