Camaro 67 brings together classic Afrobeat influences (Fela Kuti, Tony Allen), and modern Afrofunk/Groove sounds (Antibalas, Budos Band, The Herbaliser) to produce a propulsive, high-energy, made-in-Vancouver funk experience. This explosive 10-piece instrumental group debuted in the fall of 2015, picking up from where Miami Device (BC’s premier Afrobeat orchestra since 2007) left off. In their first year as a band, Camaro 67 released their 9-track debut album “Burn Rubber, Not Your Soul”. The band has toured festivals and clubs throughout BC to support the new album, playing alongside reggae legend Alpha Blondy and local groove-music heavyweights Emily Chambers, Wooden Horsemen, Kutapira, and Bazooka Picnic.

This sound comes down to the amalgamation of three specific styles. They are ingredients that blend to create what is ultimately Brian’s unique recipe for song. The most prominent of these ingredients is his darker take on North American Folk, he works with gritty and abrasive vocal tones that add a timelessness to his voice. Secondly, Brian uses warmer tones in his vocals coupled with ornamentation inherent to that of classic R&B. It is here where he smoothens the edges of his folk sound. His grit immediately becomes more palatable. Finally, Brian draws great inspiration and style from the Irish ballad, Brian shapes his writing tightly around the structure and word play of old Irish lamentations.
