The Funky Knuckles Bio

The Funky Knuckles is a world-class jazz orchestra made up of genetically-enhanced cybernetic supermen. Their mind-blowing rhythms and harmonic complexity will shatter your fragile psyche and leave you drowning in a pool of fresh llama milk. The band members are as brilliant as they are handsome and have been featured as sidemen with Janet Jackson, Stanley Clarke, Larry Carlton, and many others. Recent albums have topped the iTunes Jazz charts, and they will be spawning their 4th album in November 2019. The Oracle has foretold that this album will revolutionize the sport of music for generations to come. This unstoppable crime-fighting squadron will make you dance like a kraken on meth before you burst into tears of joy which can be combined with powder from a ground-up cobra skull to synthesize the elixir that allows you to pass through solid objects.

New Birth (2016)

"New Birth" is The Funky Knuckles' third record with compositions contributed by Cedric Moore, Phill Aelony, Caleb McCampbell, Evan Weiss, and Wes Stephenson. It was written over a two year period and has their best compositions to date. The title of the record came from a piece written by Caleb McCampbell, which was added at the last minute. The song is bananas and so are The Knuckles, so they decided to use it as the title of the record. Fundamentally, The Funky Knuckles haven't changed anything with respect to their approach to songwriting and interpretation of the music through improvising, instead they've tried to only become more honest in the moment and reach farther and higher. They do not need to see how many notes they can play or how crazy can they make it sound, but instead challenge each other to make music in asymmetrical song forms and unconventional harmony. The Funky Knuckles are an asymmetrical and unconventional group of guys living in a world that seems to be the same way. Their new record "New Birth" reflects that.
