Us, Today

Us, Today

Us, Today is a trio (drums, guitar, vibraphone) based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Their style is best described as an avant-garde blend of jazz, rock, minimalism, and electronic music, with a heavy emphasis on experimentation and improvisation. It all began with a conversation about Annie Clark... Soon after, Joel and Kristin began meeting weekly in a basement, exchanging ideas, talking about what they'd always wanted to do but never been able to in a band. THAT was what they should play. After a few months of meetings, ideas became songs. "I think i know a drummer that would be into this.", says Kristin. Jeff shows up to the basement, plays through a few tunes, and asks when "we" were practicing next. The duo is now officially a trio. The name was unintentional and agreed upon immediately. Us is who we are. Today is most important.
