With one foot in the funk world and the rest kicking through the retro, fusion, and dance doors, the Jaden Carlson Band are a four-piece “funksion” ensemble from Boulder, Colorado led by female guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist and producer, Jaden Carlson. The group is comprised of some of the best talent to be heard, with varied backgrounds coming together from all over the country on bass, drums and keys. Jaden Carlson, the front of JCB, with her oft face-melting prowess on the guitar as well as thought-provoking lyricism, has led many to tag her as an “old soul” and “well beyond her years.” Just recently turned 16, but tour-mature, Jaden leads the music with the poise and character of a highly accomplished professional. Chris Hunnicutt brings his low-end rhythm from years of gigging in the hotbed of Minneapolis gospel, funk, blues, jazz and hip-hop. Eric Imbrosciano’s depth of experience in blues, hip-hop, funk and jazz stems from his early years beating his drums around the New York scene before making his musical home in Colorado. Stephen Howell’s versatility from multi-genre influences and years of gigging with many different bands shines through in his playing the keys while providing soulful melodies. The band has been appearing at some of the nation’s most notable festivals: Summer Camp, The Friendly Gathering, The Vertex Festival, 80/35, Bumbershoot, LEAF Festival, The Werkout Music and Art Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, ARISE Festival, Bohemian Nights, and many others.
