Check out our latest promo for Dream Life release and more!   Fingerprints has managed to play its way to the top of the heap among bands in North Texas and beyond. This is evidenced by their steadfast popularity and repeat invitations to the region’s premier events. The band has performed at concerts and festivals throughout TX, LA, OK, KS, FL, TN and even UT. Led by bassist, Frederick Nichelson, Fingerprints’style is not easily categorized. “We started out trying to be the next Spryo Gyro or Crusaders, but evolution has taken us far beyond that style”, says Nichelson. “As we began to write and perform our own music, our love for soul, blues, and jazz all blended together.” Now the bands shows & recordings display a seasoned mix of many styles. Their goal is to convey emotion and energy in whatever they play. It could be an original or an obscure cover, as long as it sends the right message to the listener. Fingerprints’sound is also shaped by its long term members Claud Hardrick (sax, flute, vocals), Ardina Lockhart (lead vocals), Kennan Wylie (drums, percussion), Jordache Grant(keyboards), and guitarist Robert Lacroix. The bands four previous CDs continue to sell thousands of copies and downloads. They feature many special guests including Roy Machado, Shelley Carrol, Toni Redd, Brad Leali, Marion Meadows, and Kyle Turner. Their 5th release entitled “Dream Life” was released in fall 2009 on the all new South Memphis Music Label. It has some new surprises including Bernard Wright, Mel Scott, Todd Parsnow and more. The first single is the title song from a recent documentary called “I am a Man”. The song has been getting a lot of attention from its debut screenings in selected cities. Fingerprints’ sound is for those craving more than formulaic smooth jazz. This band has a catchy brand along with some of the grittiest, most soulful covers you will find. Take a listen and you will hear what the southwestern U.S. has kept secret for way too long a time.
