Biography:
“The Definition is a band that ignores the confines of a specific genre and is confident that their blend of rock, hip-hop and classical music is exactly what the music world needs right now.

The band consists of an energetic front man named Martin Malota aka MOLA1. He weaves between storytelling and confident battle raps, and adds a bit of singing to his performance. He has unbelievable stage presence, incredible lyrics and passionate delivery, making a case for himself as one of the best rappers you’ll ever hear.

Their electric cello player, Jeff Ehrinpreis aka Price is known as the one and only musician of his kind. Price manages to make impossible melodies with his sweet string music and also rock as hard as any guitarist as he bounces from wah-wah to distortion pedals, plucking and bowing his way through their songs.

The drummer, Derek Buford aka Bama is a consummate professional and is known throughout the city as arguably the best drummer in town. Bama brings hard hitting beats to the group as he balances his jazz influenced transitions and his penchant for beating his drums in to submission every night.”
