I became an instant fan of Elastic Bond after hearing their Excursion album years ago. The funky, multi-cultural instrumentation, positive message and polished delivery of the vocals are what drew me in. The same elements that attracted me to their music have evolved to the point of refinement and maintained my loyalty throughout the years. Elastic Bond’s core members have melded together into a fine tuned machine: Sofy Encanto, Andres Ponce, Buffalo Brown and David Burgos. From the beginning, the band gained local popularity and continued an upward trajectory to include the following accomplishments: their music has been featured on radio and TV stations like: KCRW, KEXP, & MTV; performing at the Latin American Music Conference (LAMC), and ultimately signing on to major label Nacional Records.
Sofy Encanto is the sweet and sultry songstress of Elastic Bond. A Miami hippie, her lyrics are centered on love & happiness and spreading good vibes to her audience. I met up with Sofy at a rehearsal in North Miami to chat about her start in music, the great momentum she and her band have maintained and the process of recording their 4th full length album Honey Bun which will be released February 17.
