San Francisco's Five Point Plan performs a unique blend of groove and soul. Vocalist Latrice Barnett sings Stevie Wonder inspired melodies, 'insinuating herself into your bloodstream like an old friend you've always had a crush on.' (SF Weekly, 10/00) Backed by the ultra-groovacious rhythm section of Tim Carter (drums), Michael Cruz (bass), David Metzner (guitar), and Jordan Glasgow (keyboards), Five Point Plan plays medium to uptempo funk infused with sensual, turn down the lights, slow grooves. The Plan cites M'shelle N'degeocello, D'angelo, Jill Scott, and Jamiroquai as influences, but creates a music entirely its own.
Five Point Plan music has unrestricted ability to flow with many styles: funk, acid jazz, hiphop, and soul, to list a few. Many cuts off their debut invite the addition of a crisp rap, guest brass, or DJ spinning through their live show or collaborative efforts, widening the band's appeal. Several members of the rhythm section have been writing and performing together for over seven years with Latrice joining the group in 1998. Musical tastes run eclectic resulting in a sound that is often smooth and sometimes crunchy. The Plan doesn't confine itself to any particular genre, but the game is always groove. With the tightness and seasoning of this long time rhythm section and a cool new flavor from Barnett, Five Point Plan is poised and ready to advance the funky cause.
For their second album, "Rare" (released January, 2002), FPP joined forces with producer/arranger Dave Lebolt who has spent time as a sideman, session player, and arranger with David Bowie, Billy Joel, Power Station, Chaka Khan, and Roberta Flack. Look for guest appearances by legendary organist Merl Saunders, the Turtle Island String Quartet, and DJ Pause.
Other recent highlights include sidestage dates with Sade, India Arie, Counting Crows, and Live, and reviews in Gavin and Keyboard Magazines. Exponentially increasing the group's fanbase, their MP3 'Live Today' is currently shipping with 2 million Dell Computers.
