From The wilds of Vermont comes the progressive, psychedelic sound that is Electric Sorcery. Their brand of heavy rock pulls together genres from fusion to reggae to rap and beyond creating a unique and original style that is not often heard in such far off rural locations. Nasty riffs, fluid grooves, far out leads and soulful vocals are the staples of their sound. Their lyrics are ethereal, often tongue in cheek, ranging from the surreal to the ridiculous. This electrifying group brings together some of Vermont’s best known original musicians, Derek Campbell, on vocals and guitar, Micah Carbonneau on drums, Luke Laplant on baritone sax and the electric wind instrument, and Chris Doncaster on bass.
Since it’s inception in 2008 Electric Sorcery has released three albums Electric Sorcery I & II (2009) and more recently the very twisted, Frank Zappa influenced rock opera Believe In Own Best Friend (2011) and a five song EP tiled Book Of Lies Part One (2012) with part two on the way. They’re energy packed live show has been brought to venues and festivals around New England and New York from Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom to New York City, Boston, Burlington and beyond with more extensive touring on the horizon.
