The N Result is bending the genre boundaries between rock and hip-hop, with a dash of everything else mixed in. "It's a natural result of putting six people from different backgrounds together," says lead singer Ross Lippencott. "It can be anything at any moment." The infinite possibilities - and their musical prowess - make The N Result dynamic, soulful, danceable and magnetic. Each band member has a unique musical and personal style, but all are well-trained on their respective instruments. Lippencott is a singer/songwriter/guitarist who has released three independent solo albums and currently studies music at Rutgers University. His crisp and hypnotic vocals hook the audience and his conscientious lyrics are invigorating poetry that comes alive with the band's mix of hip-hop, soul and rock and roll. Chase Innis of Harlem, N.Y., who studied English and literature at Fordham University, adds a healthy dose of hip-hop to the mix with his positive rhymes, spiritual voice and down-to-earth delivery. Chase has performed with Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Speech and records commercial tracks for companies like Nike shoes. Lead guitarist Dan Bascom, a jazz studies major at Mason Gross School of the Arts, offers a sweet sound, fresh licks and a soulful spirit. Eitan Levine, a multi-talented keyboard sensation who has played piano since he was five, harnesses the animated stylings and complex rhythms of jazz greats and funk masters alike in his explosive performances on tracks like "I Give My Word." Drummer Nate Sankary, a prolific classical musician, is a graduate student at MGSA and "knows more about rhythm than anyone could ever hope to," according to Lippencott. A virtuoso in his own right, bass guitarist Bobby Tarantino also doubles on acoustic upright bass at venues like the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and WBGO 88.3 FM in Newark, N.J. The N Result changed names - and sounds - during their first year together; the group formed as "The Ross Lippencott Band" in February 2008, drawing enthusiastic crowds with an energetic blend of bluesy rock and pop music. Performing in the New York metropolitan area, The N Result attracts girls (of course!) and audiences of all ages. Catch the band at Greenwich Village hotspot Wicked Willy's and stay tuned for their bouncy first single, "Hollywood.'
