about

This debut album is the collaborative effort of the band's two composers, saxophonist John O'Leary and pianist Will Fulkerson, brought to life with the help of bassist Ilya DaCosta and drummer Jake Pepple. With collective influences reaching as far as rock to hip hop, funk, fusion, soul, and more, this is anything but a standard jazz album, and has something for everyone to enjoy.

Recorded live over the course of one day, "Stepping Out" is a raw exposition of the combined energy of four musicians in one acoustic space. Throughout each track, the group's individual and collective improvisations intertwine to create interesting and exciting musical moments. However, words can only explain so much, check out the album for yourself!
