Listen/Share “SUNSHINE” Here

“[A] unique style and sound that incorporates roots in funk, rock, jazz, soul, Afro-beat, jam, and popular culture…[compelling] even the most stubborn of wallflowers to head to the dance floor and bust a move” - Live For Live Music

Today, MLIMA announces the release of their self-titled EP by dropping, “horn-driven disco-funk” (Live For Live Music) track, “Sunshine.” Please take a listen here. The upcoming 7-track EP—which was written, recorded, and produced solely by the band—is slated for release on September 29th, 2017.

The group is comprised of vocalist Jessica Jones, saxophonist and vocalist Zach Simms, guitarist Jeph Kennedy, bassist Ryan Thrush, percussionist Jack Breitenbach, and drummer Lance Croucher, with Ben Rafferty lending occasional notes on keys. Hailing from Denver, CO, MLIMA’s blend of “Mountain Groove” has taken the local music scene by storm, headlining venues like Denver’s Bluebird Theatre and Boulder’s Fiske Planetarium, even taking the mainstage at last year’s Arise Music Festival. The group has had the pleasure of opening for renowned acts such as Shpongle and The Disco Biscuits at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater, as well as Praang (feat. members of String Cheese Incident), Nigel Hall (Lettuce), and more.

Quite literally, “MLIMA” means “mountain” in Swahili, and their inspiration in the world around them is as tall as the Rocky Mountains. Review copies of MLIMA are available upon request.



MLIMA is due out September 29th as a self-release
