Electric Empire is comprised of Jason Heerah (drums), Aaron Mendoza(keys), Dennis Dowlut (guitar) and Simon Olsen (bass). They’re an independent-minded collection of talented musicians, songwriters and producers, where some relationships within the band trace back a near lifetime.

They’ve delivered a string of shows at Britain’s famousGlastonbury Festival, graced the stage of London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall(2012) and played to full houses in Japan and France.

Support slots for the likes of The Brand New Heavies, Bilal, Beverley Knight, U.S. soul sensation’s Aloe Blacc andMayer Hawthorne plus Antipodean funksters Fat Freddy’s Drop and The Bamboos have further pushed the group into the spotlight. For Electric Empire, the incredible ride so far is just a taste of what’s to come.
