SOCAN members BadBadNotGood have expanded from an initial base of jazz and hip-hop to a unique, eclectic, critically acclaimed blend that incudes soul, electronic, R&B, and more. BBNG have collaborated with hip-hop heavyweights like Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, and Ghostface Killah, with whom they recorded their JUNO-nominated 2015 album Sour Soul. On their 2016 recording IV, chosen as BBC Radio 6 Music's No. 1 album of the year, collaborators included sax player Colin Stetson, Polaris Prize 2016 winner Kaytranada, and fast-rising singer-songwriter Charlotte Day Wilson. Among their many accomplishments, BBNG was the band-in-residence at the 2012 Coachella Festival, and backed Frank Ocean on both weekends.
