KNOWER are hot futuresonic funk-pop. The LA duo represent the best of drummer-producer Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi. Currently touring their fourth album ‚Life‘ , they opened for The Red Hot Chili Peppers this 2017 and continue to take over with their cross over of dub-step grooves, deep harmonies and funky vocals into an incredibly imaginative off-world experience. Their all star 5-piece features Thundercat’s sideman Dennis Hamm (Keys), Sam Gendel (Sax), Sam Wilkes (Bass), Louis Cole (Drums/Vox) and Genevieve Artadi’s iconic hot funk vocal style inspired by the late Prince to Michael Jackson.
An entirely DIY act since formation in 2010, KNOWER’s viral videos, discography and live visual experience has become an international phenomena in digital culture. Clocking millions of views, their songs “F*** The Make Up Skip The Shower” feature on GTA V’s Fly Lo FM, to “THE GOVT. KNOWS” lyric that will stick with you forever. Featured on Montreal Jazz Festival 2017 lineup, they’ve performed at Stockholm Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, Quincy Jones Presents, to Snarky Puppy Family Dinner albums. Known for their live show to take their infectious energy to another level, Quincy Jones best sums up why you can’t miss them, „KNOWER WILL BE LEAVIN‘ YA’LL ON YOUR KNEES, BEGGIN‘ FOR MORE.“
