Metafonics is a four-piece straight from the vibrant musical hotbed of Denver, CO. The group prides itself on its genre variation, alternating jazzy fusion rock, spacey electronic bangers, and smooth hip-hop. Their sonic range is made possible by a wide array of synthesizers blended into shredding guitar licks, screaming keys, smooth bass and heavy-hitting drums. The result is a temperamental concoction of grooves that defies expectations and leaves no subgenre unexplored.

They have shared the stage with such national acts as Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, The Magic Beans, Jaden Carlson, & Genetics. They are also no stranger to collaboration with other local bands, and love bringing together players of all backgrounds for a unique live experience.

Metafonics released their first EP in 2014, titled "Daydream Out Loud." And with a debut full-length album coming this summer, 2017, they are setting their sights on developing a sound that is unmatched across the nation.
Metafonics is setting the stage for major developments in the near future, look forward for big things to come!
