Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power’s transcendent live performances will inspire you to dance, make love or just stand there with goosebumps. The formula starts with heavy-hitting drummer Nikki Glaspie (Dumpstaphunk, Beyonce)’s deep pocket, explosive energy and silky vocals, compounded by bassist Nate Edgar (John Brown’s Body), whose quiet confidence lies in perfect contrast to the emphatic, funky low-end he creates. Next, Nigel Hall (Lettuce, Warren Haynes Band)’s unmistakable vocals and innate ability to preach with a keyboard hit the groove in full force. Over the top comes Nick Cassarino (Jennifer Hartswick Band, Big Daddy Kane), oozing more soul in one finger than most guitarists could create in a lifetime, and with a voice that immediately wraps the room in sex appeal. West African djembe master Weedie Braimah (Toubab Krewe, Kreative Pandemonium) is the final X-factor, creating a rhythmic symphony that ties the whole equation together with flagrant finesse.
