& Figure 45
Figure 45's music spans genres - bringing together flavors of rock, jazz, funk, and folk. The band, led by singer/songwriter B-Lev, came together in Michigan in 2010 through friends who knew friends who knew friends. B-Lev plays a few different instruments - guitar, ukulele, keyboards, and some percussion - and he's the lead vocalist. Louis Rudner rocks the bass - often an upright but sometimes an electric. Jesse Broman holds down the drums, and Zach Cowden wails on the electric guitar. On some recordings, their friend Justin Douglas joins on the guitar, as well. They released their album The Open Moment in 2012, and they are now working on some solo projects. Expect a release from B-Lev within the next few months!
