NO LOVELY THING
No Lovely Thing is an eight-piece funk & soul band based in Oakland, CA. Led by singer Melissa Jones’ percussive melodies and unforgettably captivating voice, the band weaves elements of blues, ska, reggae and jazz into their modern soul-funk mix. Always leaving room for improvisation and giving each song the chance to blow up, the band’s natural bond and instinctive interactions are flawless, exploding with a seemingly effortless ease. Band leader and guitarist John Givens first connected with vocalist Melissa Jones’ through her SoundCloud page, which contained songs she had made entirely with a capella vocal layers. The pair had an immediate creative connection and began
composing and arranging right from the start. Having never met another musician with such similar musical tastes and vision, John recognized in Melissa a unique sensibility - a little R&B/soul of Erykah Badu blended in with equal parts blues/rock attitude of The White Stripes. The band is completed by its strong core instrumentalists: Milos Nikic (bass), Kevin Crawford (drums) JonAnthony Floyed-Jackson (saxophone), Ron Gruesbeck (keyboards) and additional vocalist Sarah Iyer – all seasoned musicians that add their individualized character, accents and flair to each track. Once the band began writing, performing and recording together, their path and determination grew, drawing the attention of acclaimed producer Jim Greer (Macy Gray, Galactic, Foster the
People), who began workshopping tracks with the band in anticipation of its first recording sessions. Drawing upon Melissa’s gift for layering sounds, the band’s songwriting process follows a similar methodology, often starting with a lyrical idea and then adding individual instrumentation, vocals and other nuances around that direction.
The end result is a funky soul concoction that is both contemporary and retro/nostalgic (think Alabama Shakes and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings), giving obvious nods to pioneers of these genres including Marvin Gaye, Sly & the Family Stone and Al Green. Known for their electrifying live sets and ever-growing enthusiastic crowds at legendary Bay Area clubs including The Brick & Mortar Music Hall (SF), The Red Devil Lounge and The New Parish and The Starry Plough (East Bay), No Lovely Thing thrives on performing, feeding off the energy of their crowds to make each performance unique. Completed with producer Jim Greer, No Lovely Thing’s debut EP is now available to stream or purchase on their site, itunes & spotify.
