COSMOS has had a great couple years in Seattle playing at nationally renowned festivals such as Capitol Hill Block Party, Bumbershoot and Sasquatch! Music Festival to name a few. They initially garnered attention from winning EMP’s (now MoPOP) Battle of the Bands competition in early 2016 and since have been receiving attention all across the globe. In 2017, they were one of nine bands in the nation selected to be apart MUSICOLOGY -- a battle of the bands event hosted at Prince's Paisley Park Estate in Chanhassen, MN. To keep the momentum pushing, they released their debut mixtape “Moonshine” in March, which is now available for streaming everywhere via cosmostheband.com.

COSMOS consists of a collective of creatively gifted artists. They are more than a band -- they are a multifaceted mixture of genres that will redefine your perception of Seattle's sound through a blend of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul and Electronic overtones. Listening to their interstellar beats and introspective lyrics will transport you to a higher dimension filled with nothing but free spirited vibrations. Because of this, their talents have the power to elevate your consciousness to inconceivable levels.
