Since coming together for their first performance early 2018, the 5AM Trio has solidified themselves as a thoroughly boundless, don’t-miss act. So far their sets — comprising producer Sam Andrus, ZONE Drums’ Aaron Harel, and Tygris (Zach Plocic) — are rare, having taken stage only 4 times in the last year. Fortunately, a recent video from a studio session with the group offers a worthy glimpse into their ethereal collaborations. Take a quick minute to dive into the wonderful world of Trio Transmission 2:
The song, “Floating,” features transcendental vocals from Maya Elise, a multi-faceted singer based in Colorado. Masterful scratching and atmospheric synth work from Tygris supports 5AM’s keyboard melodies and the driving power of Harel’s live percussion.
Together, the group moves as a cohesive force, crafting powerhouse compositions from their distinctive skillsets. In case the inkling to catch the 5AM Trio live this summer arises within you (and we hope it does) head to Elements Lakewood (May 24-27) or SENSORiUM (August 24) in Pennsylvania, or Earth Rhythms (June 6-8) in Minnesota.
