An introduction to ELECTRIC EMPIRE. Catch them at Glastonbury!

June 8, 2011

Since their inception and launch onto the Melbourne music scene in 2009, Australia’s hottest new soul act Electric Empire have been turning heads and gaining industry respect all over the shop.

Releasing their impassioned self-titled debut album in Oz late last year, it’s through their live shows that Electric Empire truly shine. With three multi-talented vocalists making up the core group, the line-up features Dennis Dowlut on guitar, Aaron Mendoza on keys, and Jason Heera on drums, all doubling up on senuous vocal duties.

The album is set for a September release in the UK.

Heavily influenced by the raw sounds of the late 60s and early 70s  soul music revolution, the group play an authentic, melodic blend of early rhythm & blues and jazz that defies traditional labelling, but the which the band refer to as ‘soul searching’ music.

The self-funded album was a result of the endless nights in their South Melbourne recording studio, with each track written, arranged, produced and mixed by the three, who released the album though their own independent label Electric Empire Music. 

The guys are also set to make a splash in the UK with not one, but THREE live sets at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, kicking-off Friday 24th June at the Gaymers Arena from 5-6pm!
