Flow & Plenty
Flow and Plenty were forged in the heart of Fitzroy on stage at the Evelyn Hotel's hip hop night in May 2006. This exciting collaboration of artists from Melbourne's improvised music scene and accomplished circus performer/rhymer Noah MC generate an original blend of Hip Hop, Roots and Vintage Soul. The band draws it's inspiration from artists such as 'The Roots', 'D'Angelo', 'Miles Davis', 'Skunkhour', 'Common' and 'Fat Freddys Drop'. Featuring Noah MC Marley (Vocals), Jules Waters-Lynch (Keyboards), Cesar Rodrigues (Guitars), Michael Story (Basses) and Silas Gibson (Drums). Flow and Plenty blend a strong, positive message through their lyrics with well crafted musical statements. They create a fine tapestry of jazz, hip hop, soul, RnB and blues woven through meticulous song arrangements which has been captured beautifully on their self titled EP which has just been released independently. The recording was a collaboration between the band and some of the best engineers, mixers, musicians and visual artists in Melbourne, to create an authentic artistic statement about the music they love. Highlights for the group have included performances supporting Sydney bands 'Good Buhda' and 'Lordz of the Fly'. The 2008 St Kilda Festival and The Brunswick Music Festival, and they have put on shows with top Hip Hop acts from Melbourne 'Illzilla', 'The Melodics' and 'SS Pecker'. The band has toured to Sydney and Bondi, and is in the process of planning a tour to promote their new release whilst performing and gaining airplay nationally. With one record out the band is eager to travel and record again, capturing their energy and projecting their positive Australian message out to the masses.
