Human Bloom, Chnnll
Human Bloom is a Chicago-based collective of musicians led by the eclectic writing of Jackson Shepard and Imani Rousselle. Raised on Stevie Wonder, Radiohead, Herbie Hancock, and Flying Lotus, the group creates music that is rooted in soul-jazz-fusion, but also explores electronica, folk, and world music. Their debut album, “Nightshade”, explores experimental electronica, free jazz, Thundercat-esque funk, art rap, and neo soul stylings similar to Hiatus Kaiyote. “…it’s one hell of a psychedelic experience.” —Neon Pajamas.

Chnnll (pronounced: Channel) is a trio led by multi-instrumentalist Chris Davidson, and blends the warm analogue sound of live instruments with computer manipulations and warped synths.

Chris moved to New York City in 2009 to pursue a career as a jazz drummer and composer. While attending The New School For Jazz and Contemporary Music, Chris had the pleasure of studying with Reggie Workman, Mark Guiliana, Kendrick Scott and Billy Martin.

While Chris’s appreciation for jazz is still strong, he has grown as a musician and composer into a new musical direction.   Chris is no longer behind the drums on the stage, but up front singing, switching between keyboards and guitar, reincarnated as front man Chnnll.
