Instrumentation in Hip Hop has mostly been a rare find and that is exactly where The Chosen Few Circle, also called The Few, rise to the occasion and also it is the diversity in their style of music where they attract attention. The Chosen Few Circle is a Toronto based band, appealing to Hip Hop, Funk, Dub and other genres with a strong emphasis on stage performance with a truly unique sound. The Chosen Few Circle (The Few) refuse to allow themselves be specified by one genre. A wide range of influences encourage The Few to create music that is pushing the boundaries with additives from genres such as Jazz, Blues, etc. Chosen Few Circle's prominence and passion for music is evident on the stage with energetic and dynamic performances. This band has also gained valuable experience regarding the business aspect of music by promoting their material and shows effectively.
The Chosen Few Circle was formed by vocalist, MAL, and drummer, RiDim, in early 2005. Guitarist, Lex, would join the band in 2006 and complement the band well. This serious-minded and hard working band take great pride in their art and their easy going and fun personalities create a great atmosphere. The Few has written plenty of original songs and they play shows regularly which demonstrate how much they enjoy playing music. Though these three musicians remain as the core of the band, they work with other artist such as, bassists, keyboardist, woodwind players, etc., regularly when playing shows and recording songs. Their fresh perspective of Hip Hop has been a welcome change in this genre and it has earned them a large fan base.
In 2006, the band submitted their song, 'I Will Know You', to the International Songwriting Competition. The song would then advance to the next round of judging.
" We are pleased to inform you that the song "I Will Know You," entered into the R&B/Hip-Hop category, has advanced to the next round of judging for the 2006 International Songwriting Competition."
