BLACK ALLEY For more than five years now, BLACK ALLEY has been pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, BLACK ALLEY has taken the finest ingredients of funk, jazz, soul and rock to create their own genre-bending sound called "Soul Garage". The band is one, each musician surrendering to the union of sounds, each delivering music from their soul, while in dialogue with one another through their instruments. Each member of this septet is essential to the workability and funkability of the unit which is BLACK ALLEY.
BLACK ALLEY has become one of the most followed, trendsetting and sought-after music groups hailing from the nation's capital. In 2012, the band released "Soul. Swagger. Rock. Sneakers". The 16-track compilation features original music from Black Alley in collaboration with Raheem DeVaughn, Nicholas Ryan Gant and Phil Ade. Their follow up album, "Black Alley: Live from the RNR Hotel" is the live recording project chronicling their powerful performance at their SOLD OUT album release event. Both albums are available on iTunes and BlackAlley.Bandcamp.com. The video for their single "Artist Prayer" is in heavy rotation on VH1 Soul and the video for their single “Bad Girl” recently debuted exclusively on MTVHive.com!
BLACK ALLEY has been honored to share the stage with renowned artists like Common, Estelle, Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote, Wale, Stalley, Gin Blossoms, Marsha Ambrosius, Meek Mill, Drake, Raheem DeVaughn, Bilal, Tabi Bonney, Busta Rhymes, Scarface, and Chrisette Michele just to name a few.
