World Infused Funk rises out of JoyTribe, a 5 piece band hailing from Portland, OR. Led by frontwoman and multi-instrumentalist Chelsea Luker, the band has been rocking the NW for 4 years, spreading the joy of music from all corners. Their funk is inspired by reggae, latin, jazz and rock, and is best described as a passionate fusion of Pretenders inspired vocals meets Prince and Pink Floyd’s psychedelic funk child. They recently released their first EP, 'We Insist', featuring 5 original songs and one adapted version of Peter Gabriel's 'In Your Eyes'. They are planning a second release of two singles for Spring 2018
