Biography

From the opening chords of ‘Vermont’, it is immediately apparent that The Da Vincis are something a little bit different. What is this? A rock band? No. A jazz combo? Maybe. The hum of a peculiar reed instrument is introduced into the mix, supplying melody to this mini-overture of the trio’s debut release, See You Tonight. But this is merely a peek through the door. Should the listener’s curiosity be perked, stepping inside will find him or her on a sea of soundscapes in an almost childlike utopia - simultaneously complex and utterly simple, yet always retaining a sense of elegance and beauty.

The fact that no member of The Da Vincis is older than seventeen might shed some light on this innocent nature of their music, drawing attention to the mundane aspects of life, often overlooked through the eyes of an adult whose focus is obscured by money, career, relationships, and insecurity. Instead of heartache, pain, and mistrust, The Da Vincis prefer to give an insightful perspective on slightly more positive everyday events, all the while translating a feeling of sentiment for the present - almost as if they know their youth won’t last forever and are trying to hold onto it while it’s still there.

Inspired as much by classic jazz and bossa nova as modern indie pop music, The Da Vincis’ sound sits somewhere between Astrud Gilberto and Of Montreal. The distinctive, earnest baritone of lead singer/keyboardist Andrew Burke channels both the great jazz and pop crooners of the 1930’s and 40’s and modern ones like Morrissey or Zach Condon.
