Ali A And The Agency


For a band who prefers to let the music speak for them, Ali A and The Agency have a lot to say. Their music has been described as a cross between Aretha Franklin and Dave Matthews band. After a proper introduction to the Phoenix music scene with their unforgettable, high-energy live shows, their self-titled debut LP was released in Spring 2018.



Guitarist Travis Prillaman is captivatingly cool with a guitar that's become a natural extension of his god-given limbs, and funk is second-nature to self-taught bass man Pedro Cortes, whose rhythmic foundation will make you want to groove. Saxophonist Alex Whaley uses his sultry, Coltrane-influenced flair to bring The Agency's sound to new heights, and drummer Jeff Gonzalez stays locked in on the one with his progressive rock, metal, and funk drum patterns. Jared Michael, rounds out the group with two decades of key-tickling inspired by the likes of Porcupine Tree, Snarky Puppy and Ben Folds.


music that rocks with conviction.
