Who We Are
Misnomer is an instrumental group from Atlanta and Athens, Georgia. It started as a collective of students from the University of Georgia who channeled their influences from classical, jazz, hip-hop and R&B into something different. The group is fronted by horns and backed by a rhythm section of keyboards, bass, and drums. Misnomer draws influence from artists like OutKast, Anderson .Paak, Brasstracks, and artists from GroundUp Music. According to Flagpole Magazine, “[Misnomer’s] music is as exciting as it is uncategorizable. The horn-centric outfit blends jazz fusion, deep funk, instrumental hip hop, and modern classical to create an intoxicating sound that’s unlike anything else in town.”
Misnomer has enjoyed sharing the stage with several national-touring acts such as Here Come The Mummies, Turkuaz, CBDB, Marshall Gilkes, The Werks, Shamarr Allen and more. In April 2018 they released their first full-length album, Neighborhood, and released a follow-up EP, Strength In Numbers, in December 2019. Misnomer was recognized as Athens' Artist of the Year, and Neighborhood as Athens' Album of the Year by Flagpole Magazine.
