WAVE 11

http://www.wave11music.com

A heavily jam oriented duo with music consisting of hip hop, reggae, R&B, blues, and funk.

Both originate from California (North & South) and met in Grand Junction, Colorado.
With ties to northern CA Charles “Chuck Jay” Walker is a witty & on his toes singer/mc that delivers everything from beautiful looping harmonies to insane skillful freestyle flows. Not only can he tear up the mic, this man also MURDERS the rhythm/percussion section, you’ve ever heard a groovier cajon layer.
Hailing from southern CA is Zack Couron, a guitar player that can shred just about anything with strings on it. Known for his notorious looping abilities that lead up to insanely funky guitar & bass solos that are filled with haste and technicality. Also on the list for Zack is his warm raspy voice that pairs perfect with the blues.
These two join forces to deliver an incredibly energetic and melodious project. Be warned now, if you enter the “Wave 11 Zone” you will not be able to resist the urge to get your groove on.
