Formed in 2014 in Boone, NC, Metaphonia is the prog-funk brainchild of bassist/vocalist Alex Golden and keyboardist Mike Runyon. What started as a trio betweenGolden, Runyon, and drummer Jason Burch, swiftly turned into a head-spinning chamber orchestra of jazz-rock madness. With a current lineup also featuring Erik Brandt (guitar), Blake Bostain (trumpet), Zack Wheeler (saxophone), and Joshua “Bizket” Upchurch (percussion), Metaphonia boasts some of the finest and most diverse talents in the high country. So, if funky, complex, and seldom-apologetic, satirical lyrical content sound up your crooked alley, Metaphonia is just the nonsense for you!
