Mission: Unite the people and spread love through the universal language of music.
The Settlement is a funk-fusion jam band from Huntington, WV. The eclectic, electric ensemble was founded in 2014. The Settlement cleverly combines rowdy rock riffs, complex jazz harmonies, funky bass lines, creamy pop vocals, jammin’ reggae grooves and a multitude of diverse world music influences. Each member has their own unique musical upbringing and everyone contributes to the bands’ vast array of sounds. Each set is different from the last, offering a truly original live performance that thrives on passion, improvisation, communication and creativity. The Settlement released their debut album, featuring all original material, on September 23rd, 2016. The album was recorded by Brian Hensley at Earth Tone Audio and mastered by Jeff Bosley. Singles recorded by Bud Carroll at Trackside Studios.
