New Primitives features two Mid-western Rock and Country Hall of Fame members, Stanley Kipper and Chico Perez, friends since early childhood. They have won multiple music awards including four MN Music Academy Awards for "Best Performance" and "Best Reggae/World Band."
The New Primitive sound is also composed of ska, rock, Afro-Cuban, Caribbean and Mexican music, a soulful long simmering stew of wonderfully harmonious singing and playing.
The band's debut self-titled album, New Primitives, was a mix of inventive originals ("Wild Horses‚" "Bring me Down‚" "Kiss and Run") and refreshing cover's of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" and The Young Bloods' "Get Together." The album hit the national charts and garnered coast-to-coast airplay. Released in November 2011, New Primitives' sophomore release, American Nomads, reinforces their presence and deepens their range.
Their explosive live shows and passionate energy have earned them a loyal following whenever they perform at concerts, theaters, and colleges and universities across the nation.
New Primitives is a juggernaut of multi cultural soul music that never fails to get a crowd on its feet, they have been knocking out crowds nationwide since 2003 and continue to explore their deepest musical roots!
