Funky Nature is less of a band and more a collective.
We are trying to create an upbeat style of music that draws on both the guitar world of early nineties grunge and Brit pop, to the rap and dance movements of the same era.
A cross pollination of the alt indie and hip hop...Indie hop, if you will.
With Mc Cloudy Clouds currently taking the mantle of rapper within the group, the other singers Becky and Jason manage to effortlessly melodify their way through the music and the combination of styles allows for something genuinely original.
WHERE WE STARTED...
Formed in December 2018 by producer Jason Fonfe, Funky Nature is a musical project that was primarily born from the ashes of female fronted pop trio ‘The Teasers’ and Datchet’s well established audio facility, Big mouth Studios.
It was the loss of his studio and band that drove Jason to create something that would not only reflect his musical penchant for all things indie, but a collection of songs that could work in as many forums as possible.
Armed with only his acoustic guitar, he currently performs solo or solo with beats, duo trio etc - basically any gig he can get his hands on.
With a much more versatile set up, Funky Nature has been slowly gigging its way across London and the surrounding area.
With sprinklings of the Stone roses and aromas of Jamie Woon, the style strolls along doffing it’s proverbial cap to the plethora of his musical influences from rock to rap, ska to salsa.
Funky Nature has found its niche and that niche knows no bounds.
