Aarythmers Bio and Press Release
Authenticity and integrity are two words that are thrown around in the music industry, but in the case of New Orleans seven-piece band Aarythmers, they speak to the heart and soul of the music they make. Storming out of the blocks with their critically acclaimed debut album "Below Sea Level", they are a fusion of rock, old rhythm and blues, jazz and funk, which is a testament to their years in the industry.
Co- produced by singer-songwriter Guy Wall and lead guitarist Vince Marini, the album was recorded with band members Claude Arthur (bass), Mathew Keegan (drums), Kyle Cripps (keyboard and sax) and Emma Moates and Margi Cates (backup vocals). What they have produced is an album of pure emotional power in a time when we need it most.
From the opening track Crying, beckoned by the sound of a melancholy train whistle and brilliantly arranged horns, you understand that you are in the presence of musicians who are true artists. From that point on, ‘Below Sea Level’ takes you on a journey on so many musical influences including The Beatles, Fats Domino, Credence Clearwater, Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint. The sum of all these parts is a unique and utterly captivating collection of songs that speaks to the vibrant tapestry of New Orleans and the Mississippi.
Receiving high rotation on numerous Spotify playlists, Aarythmers explore contemporary issues which people experience in their everyday lives. Dysfunctional relationships cycling from break-up to break-up based on loosely anecdotal stories of woe and torment, this is their collective truths written in a way that everyone can understand.
The music takes you to the Mississippi, to the juke joints and venues where arguably the American storybook of Blues first reared its head. When combined with the decades of experience that Aarythmers has in the bank, you can see why there has been such a buzz around their latest release.
“It has a strong personal style, something to value nowadays. The vocals are soulful and confident. The rhythm creates a magic atmosphere”. – Garage Rock 2021
As the world opens up again and looks forward to a place where we can explore new musical experiences, Aarythmers are distinctively the band that can take us on that journey with the knowledge that there are experienced drivers at the wheel. Climb on board and take a trip to their musical destiny and enjoy music the way it should be played.
