Obscurley band

Obscurley (adverb) is defined as in a way that is difficult or impossible to understand, explain, or identify or in a deliberately enigmatic manner. Obscurley is a Pacific-Northwest-based indie-alternative musical group established in Portland, Oregon in 2019. Their style cannot be narrowed down to one select type, but rather includes several different genres of music, which will be evidenced in their first full studio album entitled “Lost Circus” set to be released by Innerstate Music Group (formerly Innerstate Records, LLC) on August 6th in addition to a solo cover of “Purple Haze,” by Sony Music the same month. Thus, the name Obscurley.

 

 

The group is currently the Number 1 Rated Ska artist in the world according to Reverbnation and the animated music video for their song “Jacue,” became the most streamed ska music video on YouTube after being published for 2 weeks. The group’s most notable accomplishment is that they were one of ten artists in America chosen for a Sponsorship by Musicares (Grammy Awards) in 2020.

Debuting with a Live Album entitled, “Potcake Parliament,” distributed in February 2020 by Record Union, the group’s song “Bay Street,” landed on ReverbNation’s Top 10 hip-hop charts for the United States the following month in March. The song was performed along with Vanilla Ice at Honey in Delray Beach, Florida, on February 8th as part of a charity benefit concert for injured rescue dogs called, Barks Babes & Bros. Opening up for Obscurley was Billboard’s Number 1 EDM Recording Artist Kendra Erika. The group pledged to donate all proceeds from the album to dogs displaced and rescued from the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian and presented a check for $1,000 to Peggy Adams in South Florida that evening after the concert. Following the performance, Ben Crandell of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel wrote the following about the act, “One of the coolest upcoming hiphop artists with an old-school feel we’ve heard since Eminum.”

 

 

On July 7th Clint Warren performed solo via live-stream video for Play for Prop 2.0 to benefit Propaganda in Lake Worth, Florida along with Ben Childs from Sonic Boom Six (SB6), Joey Calderaio, and Sierra Lane.

 

Following the cancellation of Kaaboo San Diego in September due to COVID-19, where the group was slated to open up for fellow South African Dave Matthews, they instead performed at another charity benefit concert for rescue dogs on August 2nd called Music and Mutts benefiting Salty Dog Paddle. The concert was Livestream Broadcast on Facebook and featured on the homepage of Jambase.com.
