ABOUT DUPONT BRASS

A Musical Journey

DuPont Brass is a one-of-a-kind, brass-driven supergroup hailing from the vibrant DMV (DC, MD, VA) Area. Born out of the musical halls of Howard University, this once humble quintet of music scholars has blossomed into a dynamic ten-piece force, featuring brass, a rhythm section, and vocal prowess. Their journey began with humble origins, as they busked in Metro stations to fund their education, but has since catapulted them onto prestigious stages across the nation.

 

Their captivating blend of genres, which they aptly term "Eclectic Soul," seamlessly weaves together jazz, hip-hop, and R&B influences, leaving audiences spellbound. Embodying the spirit of unfiltered soul, DuPont Brass channels the groove of The Roots, the energy of Earth, Wind & Fire, and the emotive essence of your favorite R&B and Hip-Hop icons. Their live shows are an immersive experience, transcending musical boundaries and igniting a passion for their artistry.

 

With their debut album, "Music Education", DuPont Brass laid the foundation for their signature sound. This seminal work, filled with a diverse arsenal of musical styles, reflects their classical and contemporary training, showcasing their ability to blend genres seamlessly to create a catalog made with every kind of listener in mind.
 

Now, with their latest album, "Professional Development," DuPont Brass invites listeners on a journey of evolution and introspection. This record not only showcases their unparalleled musicianship but also delves into profound themes such as mental health, loss, and the pursuit of dreams. Collaboratively crafted by five of the ensemble's members, including Ant, Deacon Izzy, Jeauxsmeaux, and TurnUpDeAnte, "Professional Development" is a testament to the collective talent and creativity that defines DuPont Brass.

 

In "Professional Development", DuPont Brass proves that their growth extends beyond musical prowess; it's a testament to their commitment to personal and professional advancement. Each track is a testament to their journey, offering a glimpse into the heart and soul of the ensemble. From radio-friendly tunes to introspective ballads, this album is a reflection of their multifaceted artistry and unwavering dedication to their craft.
