The Mad Violinist 


The Mad Violinist (Ashanti Floyd) and the Symphony Crack Orchestra are an accomplished band with a unique style that attracts a broad international audience through Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, Jazz and Alternative Music. In 2011 they released their first album, The Addiction, and soon became a household name among their many loyal fans. The names, Symphony Crack and Addiction, are indicative of the influences and love for music that brought them together. In 2009, after leaving Yelawolf, Ashanti Floyd and guitarist Matt Barrett formed The Symphony Crack Orchestra to create a different, innovative style of music. Floyd and Barrett have co-produced and performed on albums that in the last two years received a combined eight Grammy Award nominations. Both can be heard on Lupe Fiasco’s The Show Goes On, which received three nominations. Other Grammy Award nominations were received for Nicki Minaj’s I’m the Best, and Fantasia Barinno’s album Back To Me. Ashanti Floyd, known as The Mad Violinist, is one of the top violinists, string arrangers, and performers in the country. He picked up his first violin at the age of three with strong inspiration from his mother. Floyd is now musically accomplished in over thirty instruments. He has performed live with B.B. King. He also tours with Lupe Fiasco. Floyd has performed at the BET Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, and on BET’s 106 & Park. The Mad Violinist & Symphony Crack Orchestra are thrilled to announce the release of their sophomore album, Fiend, which is now available on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Only 24 hours after releasing the album to the world, Fiend climbed from Top 200 to Top 10 on iTunes. A record that many artists only dream about when releasing new music to their fans. Symphony Crack’s first album, Addiction set new standards in music within their category by successfully meshing different musical styles and theory into single tracks on a very dynamic record. Seeing the early success of Fiend leaves fans highly anticipating the release of their third album. 

Jahman Brahman


Jahman Brahman is a five-member collaboration originating from Columbus, Ohio in 2003, and currently residing in the mountains of Asheville, NC. The musical intuition of each member overcomes the restrictions of any particular genre as they pioneer the musical trail with a sound completely their own. The name Jahman Brahman emerged from each member’s goal to achieve the ultimate state of musical cohesion; each instrument connected to one another to create a piece of music from the heart of one. 

They’ve described their particular style as shred ‘n’ flow, a dynamic sound with a wide breath of influence, but a focus on rich, fluid, progressions of energy. Providing the low end, Nate “Brother” Brown brings his own style of funked out and super fresh bass grooves giving depth to Justin Brown’s full and conscious lyrics. Drummer Rowdy Keelor gives the sound its steady concrete pulse providing the heartbeat for Casey Chanatry's riveting guitar-work. Layered on top are Josh Loffer's transcendent key strokes and myriad of effects. Combined, Jahman Brahman leaves the listener with a message on life, love, and the wonders experienced being part of an extraordinary musical family.

Each member holds a unique passion toward many different audio paths, with influences ranging from classic rock to electronica; from punk to jazz. Instead of conforming, they ascend music through the coalescence of their diverse styles, taking risks that unfold into powerful jams and creative compositions.
