BUSTY AND THE BASS
Busty and the Bass have come a long way in a short time. The nine members of the band connected in their first week at McGill University’s jazz school in Montreal and started jamming. Casual house party gigs soon led to scorching live performances in front of thousands on stages across the U.S., Europe, and their home country of Canada. The group’s natural chemistry and an ability to create a sound that Complex says is “best described as a lovechild between jazz, hip-hop, and electro-soul" has been a major hit with audiences, bouncing along and chanting “Bus-ty!” in unified delight. Even R&B legend Macy Gray is a fan of Busty and the Bass, praising their soulful living room session cover of her hit song “I Try” as “beeyooteefoh”.
