About The Floozies
Brothers Matt and Mark Hill are the sonic visionaries behind electronic-funk powerhouse The Floozies. Certified heavyweights in the world of jam and future groove, the Kansas City-based tandem champion authentic funk in the digital age. Following three distinct lead singles, “I Ain’t Home” featuring Dirt Monkey, “Till Gone Day” featuring hip-hop staple Tech N9ne, and“Desert Flower” The Floozies have released their 11-track studio album, Dayglow Funk. Curating an all-encompassing sound reminiscent of the golden age of funk and jazz, The Floozies refurbish vintage genres with a polished, wide-angled touch. Their unwavering dedication to preserving the art of live instrumentation both on stage and in the studio quickly solidified them as multi-faceted visionaries that transcend modern genres. Weaving elements of jam, electronica, and steadfast funk, The Floozies have shared stages with artists by the likes of Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, and Big Gigantic. Familiar with sold-out shows across the country, prominent festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, High Sierra, Summercamp, Wakarusa, CampBisco, Summerset, Bumbershoot, and headlining Red Rocks shows, their formidable sound is continuously celebrated from coast to coast. Despite their reign at the forefront of hybrid-electronic music, The Floozies refuse to settle. Following a postponed headline tour, the duo kept their fanbase’s spirit alive with the release of “Desert Flower,” a vibrant electro-funk cut that rings a familiar bell to their fervently-dedicated fan following.A journey through groovy soundscapes and festival-ready drops, Dayglow Funk is already a cornerstone offering atop their already-pioneering catalog. Stitched together with their well-recognized signature sound, Dayglow Funkis The Floozies at their best.
About Tommy Newport
Tommy Newport is known for his infectious falsetto-steeped indie anthems. He first garnered buzz with his 2018 debut, Just To Be Ironic, while he was still a teenager. Newport continued to develop his sound, releasing 2019's Tommy Gun EP and 2021's Ultra Mango EP and Liquid EP. He's received plenty of critical acclaim along the way from The FADER, Complex, Hypebeast, High Snobiety, Pigeons & Planes, PAPER, Lyrical Lemonade, COLORS & more. At only 21 years old, Tommy's already toured extensively across North America & Europe, been championed by legendary tastemakers like Zane Lowe & Giles Peterson, and collaborated with Grammy nominees EARTHGANG. Born Oliver Milmine in Manchester, England, Newport moved to the United States at a young age, eventually settling in Kansas. There, he picked up the guitar and taught himself how to produce music on his computer. Inspired by a mix of early-2000s bands like MGMT, the Killers, and Phoenix, he developed his own funky, psychedelic style of pop, framing his falsetto vocals in bass, guitar, keyboards, and electronic grooves. He quickly released an impressive catalog independently. More tracks followed, as did musical placements on shows like Search Party, Ballers, Expecting Amy, an Apple iPad commercial, and What/If.
