Vertical Current
Vertical Current
Vertical Current is a band on the rise, a name on the lips of music
lovers in one of the greatest musical cities in America, Philadelphia.
The band was started in 2009 by local trumpeter and composer
Christopher Stevens, while pursuing a music degree from Temple
University. Since then, Vertical Current has become the go to band for
visiting artists from the likes of Grammy Award winners Chrisette
Michele and Kelly Price to the awe-inspiring Frank McComb.
Additionally, the band has opened for a number of notable artists
including The Robert Glasper Experiment, Raheem DeVaughn, and Eric
Roberson to name a few.

Individually, the members of Vertical Current have traveled throughout
the world, performing and recording with an array of celebrated and
award winning artists including Roberta Flack, John Legend, Jazmine
Sullivan, Jill Scott, The Roots, and more. It's no surprise that
their interaction with such amazing artists and composers has further
kindled Vertical Current’s passion to create and perform at the
highest level.

VC's brand of music is a unique blend of genres that is intended to
uplift and inspire. Strong melodies and funky rhythms are
characteristic of their classic style. With the most recent release,
After Midnight Live, the band officially has 3 albums available. aRe
(2011), Bright Side Of Midnight (2014), and After Midnight (2017)
showcase the many ways Vertical Current gets down. The fourth
installment, The Future Is Bright, is due later this year and promises
to be their best work to date!! That being said, the best way to
experience the music of Vertical Current is in person. Their
electrifying performances will leave you feeling truly inspired.
