New York Funk Exchange

New York Funk Exchange is pleased to to announce the release of This Is Your Brain on Funk, their lead single from their upcoming LP, "Get On The Floor." The nine-piece funk band is fronted by powerhouse female vocalist, Serena Fortier, who has shared the stage with acts such as Eddie Money, Galactic, Damian Marley, Nas, Martha and the Vandellas and Fred Wesley the New JB's - just to name a few. Their second full-length album draws inspiration from acts such as James brown, Michael Jackson, Lettuce, Jill Scott, and De la Soul. The 14 tracks contain a healthy mixture of old school funk, jazz, soul and R&B creating a sound undoubtedly attributed to New York Funk Exchange. This Is Your Brain on Funk was recorded at both the legendary Avatar Studios and newly renovated Chung King Studios.

Formed in 2007, the members include bombshell Serena Fortier (vocals), Ray Holman (drums/vocals), Matt Fox (bass/guitar), Jamey Zebrack (keyboard/vocals), Matty G. (guitar), R. J Avallone (trumpet), Matt Maley (baritone and soprano saxophones), Mike Farrell (tenor saxophone) and Nick Martino (trumpet). Since their frontman, the nine piece has played hundreds of shows throughout the United States. From packed house shows to headlining festivals, to playing live on the radio on SirusXM's "Ron and Fez" show and obtaining a residency at Club Grooves NYC in Manhattan's East village, this band's energy is abundant and more importantly - contagious!

This Is Your Brain on Funk is out now and available Here.
