with special guest Olivia Quillio

Elastic Bond is part of new generation of multicultural Latinos who incorporate music from the past in order to make music for the future. With sultry female vocals reminiscent of Amy Winehouse or Little Dragon, Elastic Bond brings together a retro-futuristic combination of folkloric rhythms and electronic beats.

With influences from all across the musical map, some classic and some contemporary, Miami based group Elastic Bond brings an urban edge with a tropical twist to the alternative music scene. With a name that gives reference to an atomic physics concept, Elastic Bond's groove includes diverse elements, Imagine a colourful, funky and tropical vibe reminiscent of Los Amigos Invisibles, A Tribe Called Quest, Julieta Venegas and The Black Keys.

What started out as a project for Venezuelan producer Andres Ponce to experiment and create a unique sonic cocktail, was swiftly transformed after his harmonic textures were combined with the vibrant voice of Honduran singer/songwriter Sofy Encanto. Andres and Sofy met through a mutual friend in 2004 while sharing some music, the minute they heard each-others demo tracks, they both wanted to collaborate and make music together, so they started working on random tracks which later led to the creation of Elastic Bond. The name of the band suggests the idea of eclectic sounds and musical genres held together by a common vibe; it was loosely inspired in a molecular chemistry term. In 2006 they released an underground independent album called "Madrugada" a lounge electronica sound showcasing some of Ponce's instrumentals, some tunes with Encanto's vocals and also featuring a few guest musicians from the Miami music scene.

Soon Elastic Bond started performing gigs all around town incorporating the guitar sounds of Buffalo Brown and David Burgos on trumpet. While occasionally jamming out new tunes at live shows along with special guests which include "Orion" and Livan Hernandez on vocals they released a second independent album in 2007 called "Excursion".

Their upcoming New release "REAL" is based on well-crafted pop songs and catchy melodies, with a unique style of urban tropical funk sung in both English and Spanish. There are nods to both classic soul and traditional cumbia, while always staying true to the modern sounds of their diverse hometown of Miami.

The first single "Pierdo El Control" will be impacting at radio on June 11th and the full album will be out in stores on June 25th.

Olivia Quillio

Olivia Quillio, a singer/songwriter from Upstate New York, is reinventing the Modern Torch Song. Her voice and songs explore the coupling of vivid folk-inspired lyricism and melodic jazz texture within those popular sentimental songs of unrequited love and stamp them with her own particular brand of heartbreak. From her native Northern New York to as far away as Portland, OR, her dynamic performances have been known to captivate any room - be it intimate living room or dark bar. Along with her solo work, she is part of the all female group Babe City, opening for acts such as Langhorne Slim and Sean Rowe.

Her much anticipated first studio album is due Spring of 2013.

The Latest News

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More
