Mission: Unite the people and spread love through the universal language of music.

The Settlement is a funk-fusion jam band from Huntington, WV. Cleverly combining rowdy rock riffs, complex jazz harmonies, funky bass lines, dreamy pop melodies, jammin’ reggae grooves and a multitude of diverse world music influences, the ensemble offers something for everyone. Each member has their own unique flavor and contributes to the bands’ vast array of sounds. Each set is different from the last, offering a truly original live performance that thrives on energy, improvisation, communication and creativity.

The Settlement released their debut album on September 23rd, 2016. The self-titles releases was engineered and mixed by Brian Hensley at Earth Tone Audio and mastered by Jeff Bosley. 

In 2019, the band released three singles. “Surrender” and “Work” were engineered, mixed and produced by Bud Carroll at Trackside Studios. “Possibility” was engineered and mixed by Brad Kinder at Big River Records. All three singles were mastered by Grammy award winning engineer, Richard Dodd.
