Paracosmic is a collaborative project of musicians from various parts of California and The United States. The band’s sound can be described as a funk-based improv flow, incorporating rock and blues with a keen taste for the psychedelic soundscape. Forming through the deep seeded dreams of 4 individuals (Travis Soto, Norman Leo Meginley, Ashton Slater, Brandon Cooke), Paracosmic began in 2015 in Los Angeles through mutual friends in the southern California music scene and festival circuits. Since then, the band has grown to a full 6 piece with the addition of Adrian Johnson and Evan Hatfeild, and along with playing several staple venues in Los Angeles, are making their way onto Festival line-ups with their favorite artists. So, what does the name mean? Paracosmic is the adjective of the word Paracosm, which is a detailed, imaginary world. Within that concept the funky family aim to take you on a very lucid yet imaginary voyage through your mind and reality simultaneously for a rockin’ good time! Keep your ears peeled for PARACOSMIC.
