SpiralPhonics is an instrumental music trio founded in 2021 by saxophonist Art Edmaiston, guitarist Logan Hanna and percussionist Terence F. Clark. The musical direction of the group focuses on original compositions and improvisations woven together using the energy of the moment. October 2022 marked the release of their debut live album “The Argot Session” and the band is currently working on new music for an upcoming studio recording.
Melodic twists and churning rhythms challenge the listener to open the lens of expectation and allow themselves to be transported through the air on surging spikes of energy freely flowing into funky cascades of textural grooves and harmonic surprises.
Inspiration – Vibrations – Reflections – Intention
For this concert in the Green Room at Crosstown Arts, SpiralPhonics will give a rare performance as an expanded quartet.
Joining Edmaiston and Hanna for this show is the phenomenal PeeWee Jackson on drums with fiery up-and-coming bassist Liam O’dell rounding out the quartet. SpiralPhonics is a musical group drawing from a deep well of influences and experiences. The members are always open to the unlimited possibilities of the moment and that is what makes each performance special and not to be missed!

“From fiery jazz to deep ambient beauty to the funkiest soul music, this music captures the sound and essence of Memphis in a fashion only made possible by a group of some of its most respected and skilled artists from the past two decades. Deeply emotional, raw, and sometimes even danceable; inspiring sounds from the South.” – Chad Fowler / Mahakala Music
