Some music, because of its originality, timelessness, mass appeal, or perhaps because it is just plain odd, will always be destined for the hallowed halls of cult classicism. No band fits this criteria better than Papadosio. Formed in Athens, OH, the band has been creating a home at the forefront of live electronica for five years, wowing crowds from Denver and Cleveland to NYC and Atlanta, and shaking the earth at festivals and clubs alike.
Papadosio's music is all about unexpected combinations. From rock and house to jazz, hip-hop, dub, and so on, every song has a unique approach to attaining originality. Long improvisational interludes and vocal harmonies project an amplified message of transcendence, unity, and universal understanding that quickly sets this group in a new category of mass appeal.
Now hailing from Asheville, NC, Papadosio has released three albums: Magreenery (2007), By the Light of the Stars EP (2008), and Observations (2009). Take one listen to any of these discs, and the band's mission becomes abundantly clear: to combine eclectic musical traditions with modern electronica to stir the heart and fuel the mind.
