Finally got these ears phones off my head in time to tell all you solumusic loving people out there about this great band THE ENDANGERED you probably have already heard of them but anyways.This outfit are winning over space on my IPAD,IPOD and BLACKBERRY.Its so refeshing when you hear music like this it truly inspires hope that there is still great music out there and that independant artist are not lacking simply because they dont have a major label backing them,in essence this is what makes them even more creative beacuse they are less shackled.THE ENDANGERED come straight of the soul music of yesterday but are have truly found a niche in which they have made there own.Maiya Sykes the lead vocalist simply leaves me spellbound and on the killer track you ll be mine on their brand new EP she simply has me hitting replay! replay!! replay!!! button( i might end up breaking this thing) the bands EP is entitled THE ENDANGERED is a must have on your mp3 player all songs are also great to drive to by the way (Ive driving my wife crazy with his group recently in the car nothing else gets played ) other killer songs include their new single calling on you simply stunning(and i like the video also) Broke Heart with a wonderful reggae tinged accoustic soulful vibe.Dollars which highlights the economic problems of the day(mmm let me just hit the replay button again) Mistakes has a dreamy feel to it whilst at the same time acoustically grabbing you in way you dont expect,its hard to explain how i feel abou this song accept that i just like it probabaly because of the vocals of one Maiya Sykes.Any way go get this EP its worth every penny.

The Endangered is Maiya Sykes, Nick Block, Frank Abraham and Gene Coye. Founded in Los Angeles in 2009, guitarist Nick Block and drummer Gene Coye, who met while attending California Institute of the Arts, enlisted Berklee College of Music graduate, bassist Frank Abraham, to establish a start-up music production house dedicated to writing songs for others. While working together the three realized that they were in need of a talented in-house vocalist and turned to singer Maiya Sykes to write lyrics and perform the trio’s compositions. Sykes, a brilliant performer who not only sings back-up for Macy Gray and fronts the house band for the uber-trendy Sayers Club in Hollywood, was an
undeniable first choice. Prior to teaming up as The Endangered, Sykes had previously played with both Coye and Abraham.
With a few songs under their belt, this foursome discovered that writing as a team came naturally and with a good vibe. According to guitarist Nick Block “We’d established a unique sound based on the eclectic mix of all our personal influences and realized it made more sense to depart from the concept of selling our recordings for other artists to cover, and embrace the idea of making a true band out of the relationship the four of us developed as writers.” It was then that these collaborators decided to officially become The Endangered.
“We named the group The Endangered because we felt that the type of music we enjoyed playing was slowly being edged out of the popular music lexicon,” says Sykes. She continues, “As musicians, we enjoy a wide variety of musical genres and we wanted the freedom to create music that celebrated what drew us to music in the first place. We hope to make music that is popular and thought-provoking.”
The Endangered has since been committed to composing, recording and performing original material that brings to life their unique blend of Vintage Soul, Adult Contemporary R&B, Rock, Hip-Hop and Jazz. A sonic reflection of The Endangered’s unique, cross-genre artistry, the band’s live set list includes covers of Radiohead’s ‘There, There’ and The Police’s ‘Message In A Bottle’. The Endangered actively gigs all over Los Angeles and has performed at landmark venues like Molly Malones.
May 22, 2012 marks the release of the band’s first EP, The Endangered. Produced by Grammy-winning, industry veteran, Steven Miller (Jack Johnson, Pink, Dave Matthews Band and more), The Endangered is comprised of five tracks including ‘Broke Heart’ – the first song written by this group, along with the band’s first single, an emotional ballad about overcoming heartbreak entitled ‘Calling On You’. ‘Calling On You’ will be released as a digital single on May 1, 2012.
