Hailing from varying pockets of the U.S., the members of Every Empire found each other in Brooklyn and congregated their musical expertise there. The band is a collaboration of four established artists, each with a lengthy roster of tours and work under their belts. Combined, they have worked with the likes of Blondie, Boy George, Scissor Sisters and many others. Lead by singer/bassist Dave Smith, guitarist Andee Blacksugar, keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen and Keith Robinson on the drums, the group takes inspiration from funk masters of the late seventies as well more modern influences like Basement Jaxx, Squarepusher and Zedd. They deliver fun in the form of electro-rock music, motivating the listener out of their seat and onto the dance floor.
