In 2019, five musicians came together to form a band with a name that couldn’t be a better fit: Uncommon People.
Hailing from two states and five different ethnic backgrounds, together they produce a sound that pays homage with bluesy tracks like “On the Fly” and also embodies the new age sounds with songs like “Pursuit” & “Waste No Time.” After only 5 months of making music together, they have managed to record demos, book showcases and release live sessions on YouTube.
With a new year here, the band is gearing up to play out more and record their debut EP. Meet the band below and be sure to collect them all! They’ll be valuable soon.
