“MAUVE is a 5-piece soul R&B combo serving up a feast of funky jazzy Latin beats, tasty horn licks and fluid bass lines blended with percussive keyboards and vibrant vocals to create a powerful, emotive, compelling and uplifting set of strong songs, soulful melodies and inspiring lyrics delivered with warmth and passion. The band is constantly evolving and travels to places full of wonder with lush harmonies soaring to spirited highs through dynamic arrangements that energize and captivate.”
