Fusing nasty hip-hop beats with soul heat and rock and roll fire, Montreal’s Groundfood is a study in contrast. The quintet is as adept at executing tight, fresh, original arrangements as they are at unleashing an improvisational maelstrom, making their live shows both unpredictable and captivating.
Groundfood formed in the independant-music-mecca of Montreal, Quebec in 2009. The band consists of bassist Mark Haynes, drummer Jahsun, guitarist Jordan Peters, keyboardist Parker Shper and singer Malika Tirolien. Members of Groundfood have worked with notables Janet Jackson, Arcade Fire, Jean Leloup, Trey Anastasio, Third World, Immortal Technique, Steel Pulse, and the grammy-award-winners Sounds of Blackness, Snarky Puppy and Lalah Hathaway. Between them, they have performed at CMJ, SXSW, The Montreal Jazz Festival, POP Montreal, World Cafe Live, Royal Albert Hall, Tokyo Blue Note, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Moers Festival and across the globe.
They are gaining widespread attention due to their uncanny ability to unceasingly weave fresh and thoughtful material over perennially infectious and danceable grooves. Their unique and open concept allows them to collaborate with various MCs, singers, electronic musicians and even visual artists to create a one-of-a-kind music listening experience.
