Elev8tor is combination of electronic music programming, live drums inspired by the funky drum breaks of the 60’s and 70’s, and the dreaminess of down-tempo with a dance club delivery. Started initially as a live performance vehicle for keyboardist Kevin Ford’s collection of original tracks, Elev8tor has grown in its members, styles, and influences. After a history of numerous (separate and collective) studio collaborations between Sam Sharp (drummer), Olin Langley (bass), Bryan Ford (guitar), and Kevin Ford, singer Darcy Markham joined the formula and the band began pursuing an energized club sound. Collective roots in the underground loft party culture in Chicago and a series of club performances gave the group its current ‘peak hour’ ambitions. The eccentricities of electronica form an organic, dark under-bed to the old school funky, dirty dance club vibes topped with Darcy’s soul sensibility and classic delivery.
