Vokab Kompany is a genre-defying collection of sound comprised of vocalists Rob Hurt and Burke Baby. With live accompaniments by their five-piece band, they use heavy synths, guitars, saxophone, bass and drums to create an innovative sound that blankets audiences and leaves them in a musical stupor. While maintaining a rigorous touring schedule, the San Diego natives have also found themselves as hometown favorites, garnering recognition at the San Diego Music Awards and winning several awards including best Hip Hop album and best Hip Hop performance. An interesting feat for a band that could just as easily be called Electronic, Funk, Jam or Rap in the same breath.
In addition to their accolades at home and on the road, Vokab has released several studio albums to critical acclaim. Their unique mesh of style has led them to delicious collaborations and over a dozen national syncs, including two Kia commercials, a spot on STARZ movie channel, and music on TV shows like Franklin and Bash and the Today Show. Their song World Wide was the anthem for the trailers of the new Sacha Baron Cohen movie.
On the touring side, the duo is fresh off of a West Coast headline tour supporting their most recent album. They’d previously embarked on a six-month tour fronting the Run DMC Remixed tribute for Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, with appearances everywhere from Brooklyn to San Francisco to New Orleans for Jazzfest. Along with their full band, they have played countless festivals including Snowglobe, Electric Forrest and Coachella and have toured with bands of all genres, from Umphrey's McGee to Collie Buddz to Del The Funky Homosapien.
The spontaneity of the band’s live performance is what has allowed them to cross genres so effortlessly; dancers, performance artists, guest musicians and unique arrangements continue to surprise fans, and exemplify the defining aspects of a Vokab Kompany show.
