Art of Reaching
Arcata, CA - based Nucleus has been steadily evolving and cultivating it's own niche in the music world since it's formation in 1999. Having spent years in rehearsals and on the road exploring the inner workings Jazz, Funk, Blues, Latin, and Electronica, the modern sound of Nucleus is a Rock' n 'Roll power trio with a twist. Through the use of loops and other sonic manipulations, the band sometimes sounds more like a Dub Lounge or Afrobeat Orchestra in the live setting. But it always comes back to the satisfaction and release of Rock' n' Roll, with an arsenal of solid original tunes and covers that will set any room on fire. One of the most innovative and trailblazing bands on the up-and-coming national scene, Nucleus is no stranger to the road. Known for their relentless coast-to-coast excursions, the years of solid playing in so many places have given the band an expansive palette to fuel their musical progression. Now settled in Northern California, the band continues to tour regularly while exploring their studio potential to it's fullest. With many well known festival appearances on the horizon and a groundbreaking new album 'The Art of Reaching' to hit the public September 27, 2005, Nucleus is poised to make a lasting impression on the grassroots music scene and beyond.
