The Square Egg

Formed in Miami in 1999, the original band consisted of a mere three members and as the band's sound evolved, so did it's size. The Square Egg, won a 2003 Miami New Times Readers Choice Award in for Best Local Group in their "Best Of Miami" issue. In 2003, now a ten piece ensemble, The Square Egg relocated to New York, believing that New York's eclectic audience was ready for their funky sound. Since relocating to New York, the band has performed at some of the city's well-known spots including S.O.B.'s, The Knitting Factory, The Five Spot, and amassed a fan base as cultural eclectic and racially mixed as the band itself. Their unique sounds stem from Mike Rens (bass player), Woody Quinn (guitarist), Jim Antonucci (saxophone), Russ Kleiner (drummer), Brian Newman (trumpet), Rick Parker (trombone), Pat Firth (keyboards), and on lead vocals LEE assisted by background singers Shelby Isaac and Carol Brevard-Stern. Their name is borrowed from a book entitled The Square Egg by British illustrator, Ronald Searle. The cover features an illustration of a bird is nesting it's square egg while all the other birds look on puzzled. "That's kind of how we view our music," explains Lee. "It's not confined to a specific genre and really follows its own rules." The Square Egg conveys universal ideals that challenge the listener as well as entertain and sometimes not following the rules means creating their own. "We've recorded three albums with some really great music that we've sold online, at our shows and on our website, http://www.thesquareegg.com/. We thought it would be pretty cool and actually funny to create a best of album of the music that you'd only have if you purchased the album online." Decidedly as eclectic as their name is the selection of songs on this collection. "Quite Possibly The Best Of The Square Egg is a broad spectrum of our sound and style," explains LEE. There's the social commentary on ‘Whatever Happened To Crack?' and ‘One Day' alongside the more straight ahead hip-hop on ‘My Wooden Tongue.' "As a songwriter, I draw from life as an inspiration - my idealistic vision of life versus the reality so ‘With You' and "Our Love" song were added to this collection because they paint a positive image of relationships between men and women," Lee explains. The radio single "With You," features Milah, a finalist from Diddy's MTV show, Making The Band. Other guest appearances include Geisha Solbarn on "Our Love Song," and "Hello Sunshine" featuring Antonia Jenae and the salsa-flavored, "Woman," which features Noah Bless from Lincoln Center's Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra and Tomas Diaz of Spam Allstars. Quite Possibly The Best Of The Square Egg offers a healthy portions of funk, hip-hop, jazz, spoken word, and R&B to satisfy anyone nostalgic for good musicianship. Discover The Square Egg for yourself, you'll definitely be back for seconds.
