Funky Chemist is an organ trio that fuses funky grooves with heavy guitar and adds a strand of psychedelic rock into what would otherwise be categorized as a jazz act. The music is most influenced by Stanton Moore Trio, Soulive, Dr. Lonnie Smith and The Meters.

Funky Chemist released their first collection of songs 3/27/20. The band recorded with Ric Probst at Tanner-Monagle, Gary Tanin at Daystorm mastered the album, and the eight track effort clocks in at just under 38 minutes. The release has been well received, debuting at #195 on the NACC Top 200, and has looks from several outlets:

Vintage Guitar Magazine - July 2020
"Eloquent 9th chords and adept soloing elevate a band with chemistry"
