[ LICORICE, THE BAND ]
On the heels of the release of their first studio EP, the critically acclaimed A Million Grains of Sand, Licorice’s current momentum is exponential. They perform as a dynamic live force with David Lott (guitar, vocals), Matt Epstein (bass) and Josh Bloom (drums, vocals) at the core. The Brooklyn based rock outfit has displayed their musical chops on the world famous stages of The Blue Note, Knitting Factory, Brooklyn Academy of Music and other festivals and settings. They’ve shared the stage with legends and contemporaries, including: Larry Coryell, Roy Hargrove, Mike Dillon, and DJ Logic. Their songwriting, an amalgam of Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock, is the key vehicle to their original sound as a group, as they prove there are no musical boundaries. Together, they conquer complex originals, covers, jazz standards, and fusion “episodes”, on top of barn-burning rockers, anthems, and ballads - all with power, pocket and ease, with a cohesive and delicate touch.
