Earsight is a high-energy, instrumental funk/jazz quartet based out of Upstate South Carolina (Greenville/Spartanburg). Combining funk, straight-ahead jazz, soul, gospel, and New Orleans flavor, Earsight produces intoxicating, danceable grooves with a progressive edge, reminiscent of bands like Soulive, Galactic, and Medeski, Martin and Wood. The music is tight yet exploratory with an emphasis on interaction and improvisation.
Earsight is Adam Knight (guitar), Tim Blackwell (drums), Will Sinclair (keyboards) and David Katilius (bass). The band members have been involved in various successful projects and have years of combined experience, playing with jazz greats such as Ellis Marsalis, Wycliff Gordan, Walter Blanding Jr. and Kenny Garret to name a few. With past projects they have had the opportunity to open for such influential and diverse artists as Maceo Parker, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Wynton Marsalis, and Incubus.
Earsight’s self-titled debut CD, released in 2015, has received positive reviews and regional airplay. They are currently busy writing, recording, and performing at festivals and venues in the Southeast.
