Introducing Nonpronto

 

In a pop music landscape dominated by the guitar, a piano-fronted rock band is bound to stand out—and Nonpronto does just that. Not since Ben Folds Five has a piano trio brought such creativity and energy to the art of pop songwriting. Since forming in Chicago in 2012, they’ve released two EPs: Nonpronto (2013) and Like Shit (2014). Both collections feature five songs worth of infectious hooks, danceable grooves, and slightly heady lyrics.

In their short time together the piano driven power trio has made a name for themselves in the Chicago music scene with their genre-bending, unpredictable live performances. Jazz musicians turned pop-rock wannabes, Nonpronto is steadily developing a unique brand of catchy melodic songs that attract all kinds of listeners, from dance crowds to music nerds.

The group is currently planning a tour and working on new material for their debut full length album, set to be released in 2015. Check their Facebook page and website for upcoming tour dates, live footage/recordings, and Nonpronto gear. Hear the music on iTunes, Spotify, Youtube, and Bandcamp.

Promos and INstagrams

PRESS

"The Nonpronto EP has a jam band-type sound that is reminiscent of instrumentation found in The Bad Plus, but the vocals of singer Dan Collins give it a Ben Folds-like factor that makes them truly unique. Throw in the improvisational skills displayed in “Serendipity” and “Sweet Times Run” and the in-and-out blend of the bass and kit; Musical freedom at its finest." —Tyler J. Henderson, AllAboutJazz.com Musician Editor

"Nonpronto’s music is an old soul revived..." —Angel Leon, FrostClick.com (Album Review)

"Pop jazz akin to something like Bublé hit by Fun, co-written by Cullum and Levine." —AllAboutJazz Free MP3 of the Day

"...new, extremely relaxed jazz..." —OrlandoFurioso, MusikRebell (Album Review)

"Everything is so smooth...flowing, natural. None of it sounds forced. Like you're just sitting down and playing because your hands want to move, and singing because you've got a story to tell. It's really nice." —Steve Harm, Owner of Warehouse La Crosse

"It’s music for walking down Michigan Ave on a sunny day with your friends or sweetheart, or waiting for the “El” in a gentle rain. It’s nostalgic, yet modern. It’s simply beautiful music." —Seth Arp, "Track 8 Music" (Posting)

"...they lay down some good solid grooves...You'll dig them like I do." —Lew Ojeda, The Underground Multiplex (Posting)

"Dude... I just fell in love with Nonpronto. Listened to you guys Live at The Tonic Room. So cool." —Gina Glocksen (Ruzicka), American Idol Top 10 Finisher
