Transcending the boundaries of genre, Insigniya has hit the ground running since the band’s start in January 2009. Taking influence from a vast range of musicians, Insigniya has been breaking down barriers in creating original music that cannot be classified simply as jazz, rock, or funk.
Insigniya is centered on the concept of channeling a special energy through an audience, creating a feeling of freedom and self-empowerment, while giving people sounds to bob their heads and shake their bodies to. This energy is found full force at shows and getting it recorded is the ultimate goal when the band is in the studio. With a constantly growing loyal fan base, Insigniya is attracting more and more people to shows, which have a unique atmosphere full of high energy and full-throttle senses-saturating sensations.
In January 2011, Insigniya released a self-titled EP and since has been making waves around the Northeast. Only in their third year, the group has already performed at venues such as The Middle East Downstairs (Boston), Nectars (Burlington, VT), Sullivan Hall (NYC), and Cafe Campus (Montreal, QC).
In Summer 2011, the group made their debut on the festival circuit, performing at festivals such as StrangeCreek & Wormtown (MA), Disc Jam (MA), Camp Coldbrook (MA), The Big Up (NY), Liberate (VT), Bella Terra (NY), Evolvefest (NJ), Heads In Harmony (ME), Magnetic Gathering (NH), and Lesphestival (NY).
The band has many big plans for the near future including releasing a full length album as well as continually extending the range of touring.
