The Main Squeeze, with deep musical roots sprouted in the Midwest,
have scored their lives at each twist and curve. While starting out as a party
band at Indiana University, their forthcoming April 28th release Without a Sound illustrates their increasing musical
maturity and creativity inspired by their new home in Los Angeles.
If maturity comes with experience, Without a Sound reflects this.
The Main Squeeze has spent several years building their foundation since
being championed by producer Randy Jackson: they have played Red Rocks; shared
the stage with The Roots, Aloe Blacc, Jane's Addiction, Umphrey's McGee, and
Trombone Shorty; and performed at music festivals like Bonnaroo, Electric
Forest, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.
The Main Squeeze is a blend of soul and hip-hop, funk with rock.
They know their sound is "soulful, powerful, and unique" (Newman).
Rolling Stone agrees in their recent critique of a live show: "Lead
singer Corey Frye's powerfully soulful vocals forms the foundation of an
These underpinnings are important yet The Main Squeeze's true focus
will always be to "strive to reach people" through their beat loving heart in
their music. "We are devoted to making great music for people to get lost in
and to feel real emotion and love, and also to dance and enjoy life. And it's
only just the beginning" (Newman). Billboard believes they have touched on this
goal: "Funk runs deep in their DNA. Dare you not to two-step."
The beats on Without a Sound are plentiful and it is balanced
with emotion, a mix of vocals, and instrumentation of the band. Their
vibe is simultaneously timeless and futuristic as they are inspired by the
greats, yet have found a way to infuse their own genius into the mix.
The Main Squeeze appeals to your head, heart and body.
Decent at Best is a four-piece 'Electro-Funk' group from Tacoma, Washington, that brings upbeat, summer-y sounds filled with infectious melodies and a stage presence that consistently moves crowds.
DAB's musical styling consists of funky guitar riffs, deep basslines, smooth R&B-inspired keys and vocals that are backed by groovy, hard-hitting percussion. Influenced by a wide array of different genres, including but not limited to: Funk, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Rock, each song is a completely unique experience. After several years of performing, DAB has drawn comparisons by crowds and supporters to acts and sounds reminiscent of Chromeo and Daft Punk, ultimately dubbing their multi-genre approach as, "Electro-funk."
The band continues to evolve their sound as each member brings their own unique style and varying musical tastes to the group. They have been releasing music and performing around the northwest since 2016, consistently playing shows and earning spots at festivals such as Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party and Summer Meltdown festival.
