World Premiere: The Pendletons are making "Funk Forever"

(February 7, 2018) The Pendletons clearly have a love for 80s East Coast funk groups like Skyy. And that love comes through on the music of members E da Boss and Trailer Limon. The group emerged with their first release in 2010, and since then they’ve built a strong following for their brand of funky soul.

This Spring, The Pendletons are returning with a brand new EP out this spring, and a full-length album to follow later in the year.  Now armed with a horn section, a vast array of accomplished jazz and funk contributors, and a knack for quality song-writing, the Pendleton’s sound has shaped into something fresh and unique.

We’re proud to present a sneak peek of the upcoming EP with a World Premiere of the single “Funk Forever.” The group tells us, "Making ‘Funk Forever’ was a new process for us.  Instead of starting with a beat, usually a sample by one of us, we went into the studio with musicians and recorded them playing together to get a more live sound.  We wanted the energy of the musicians playing off each other to reach through.  After we got a good framework, we went back and wrote the lyrics.  Then we went through and added all the extra funky goodies, back-up vox, additional Synth horns and percussion.  We are both really happy with the result and it’s fun to play it live." 

The song sounds great, and gets us excited to hear more from The Pendletons. Check out our World Premiere of “Funk Forever” and tell us what you think!
