One of the cornerstone acts of the Los Angeles. retro-soul/funk scene, the Terpsichords play taut, old-school instrumental funk with a contemporary energy and an enthusiasm that has earned them rave reviews and spots backing up and playing along side such artists as Charles Neville, Dave Malone (the Radiators) and Jon “Papa” Gros (Papa Grows Funk).
The Terpsichords were formed in 2012 by producer/guitarist Doug Grean (Sheryl Crow, Velvet Revolver, Slash) and LA session drummer Keith Larsen. Grean and Larsen met at a LA recording studio while working on a record by progresive rock group Oedipus. It didn’t take long for the two of them to realize they both had a mutual love of old school funk, soul and blues. Now 2 years later they are slated to release their first full length record. The quartet is rounded out by Jon Spence on bass and Valerie Taylor (Clifton Williams and the Blue James Band) on keys.
