Who Are We
Born from the minds of trumpeter Alonzo Demetrius, drummer Brian Richburg Jr., keyboardist Daniel Abraham, and guitarist Sean Cronin, The Ego is a genre-fluid collective of instrumentalists that explore improvisation and spontaneity within a modern musical context. Our mission is to create a space that is bold and exciting, yet open to people from all walks of life.
Over years of live experimentation, The Ego crafted its sound from a perfect blend of acoustic and synthesized elements. Lush keyboard pads combined with rich keybass provide a dynamic space for the drums and trumpet to build within, while the guitar adds texture and energy to the mix. Our influences range from Haitian Kompa and New Orleans Bamboula to 70’s Jazz-Fusion and modern day Hip-Hop and R&B. In short, we do it all.
Over a 2-year weekly residency at the famous Wally’s Jazz Club, we have gained a loyal following and have been active ever since, releasing two singles and performing throughout Boston and New York City. The Ego will be featured on Alonzo Demetrius' debut album 'Live from the Prison Nation' releasing in Fall 2020
