Out to Lunch – New York ElectroSoul
New York ElectroSoul has hit the streets. And the streets of New York are where it emerged. Busking on a subway platform one afternoon the then unknown vocalist Damon C. Scott was discovered by David Levy. That was back then, in 2007 – a lot has changed.
Damon and David have worked together ever since. Writing songs, playing shows, and recording material, which is premiered in their first official release together, Uptown 6. Damon C. Scott is now best known for being the voice behind the track Look Right Through, which took the UK by storm, topping the charts in 2013. The hook up for this track was made through David, and now Damon is returning the favour.
The band works under the name, Out to Lunch, and Damon fronts the band with his distinctively powerful voice and soulful harmonies, all supported by funky basslines and deep-house grooves. David holds it all down on electronics, keys and horns. The Village Voice has hailed Out to Lunch as “ambitious and funky,” while Billboard Magazine calls them “a distinctive brand of funk…expanding the range of the listener’s experience.” Find out for yourself with their new album Uptown 6, released August 19th, and summer North America tour.

Out to Lunch (instrumental)
Pushing the depths of the underground jazz scene, cutting edge New York City-based Out to Lunch has released its third instrumental album, No One Left Behind, on one of the finest indie record labels, Mesa Bluemoon Recordings. Tracks such as “In Da House” and “It’s a Jungle Out There” move effortlessly from the world of funk to breakbeat, from dub to house, creating a sound that hits both the mind and feet. Out to Lunch has not only established itself as a mainstay on the New York scene, but has toured extensively through North America and Europe.
