Wordsauce is a 7 piece Live Hip Hop/Funk band, based in San Luis Obispo, California, formed by Drummer Bill Gerhardt and Bassist Wesley Price in 2009. With Guitarists Kevin Strong and Shawn Warnke, Saxophonist Samuel Franklin, Turntablist/Producer Eric Mattson, and Emcee/Vocalist/Producer Rick “Risko” Loughman all joining the band by 2010, Wordsauce began developing their own style of Hip Hop with live instrumentation. Emcee/Vocalist/Conga player Patrick “June” Braddock joined the band in 2012 after meeting Loughman in a music history class in junior college. With a diverse combination of musical backgrounds, Wordsauce has thrived on open-mindedness in the song writing process and has established a sound that captivates crowds of all demographics. Wordsauce mixes funky, soulful Hip Hop instrumentation with intensely rhythmic lyrical form. The variety of musical backings has driven group emcee Risko to expand his dynamics as a vocalist.
Wordsauce released their first full length studio album, “The Flow”, on July 18th, 2015, and is currently working on a 2016 release. To download “The Flow” and other Wordsauce music go to iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and Youtube.

“It’s hard to imagine throwing on this LP and feeling anything less than joy. From the pink flamingos on the cover to the buoyant, flashy grooves embedded in each song, Bad Juice is the soundtrack to your carefree, balmy summer nights.” - KEXP
“High Pulp’s infusion of soul-based hiphop, R&B, and funk cannot be missed” - The Stranger

Born out of a no-name Seattle basement, High Pulp has been taking the Pacific Northwest by storm. What they first brewed down there is a monstrosity - a high-octane jazz, funk, hip-hop, punk, psychedelic cocktail with foul odors and a bitter taste. It’s chewy too.

The addicts call it BAD JUICE and their warning is clear: DO NOT CONSUME. IT WILL MAKE YOU SICK.
