Since When? was formed by guitarist, bassist and composer Terence Culpepper . Their music is a fusion of jazz, rhythm & blues and Brazilian styles which reflect the range of influences Mr. Culpepper has been exposed to throughout his musical career. Since When? also performs arrangements of songs written or performed by the artists who have influenced Mr. Culpepper's own compositional style which includes Antonio Carlos Jobim, Sade, The Rippington's and others. Remarks Mr. Culpepper on his approach to covering other composer's songs:
When we begin to do another composer's song, I don't want the audience to recognize the song until about the 16th to 24th bar!
The music of Since When? is an alternative to today's music with lyrics which tell a story and arrangements simple in form but layered with the full potential of today's electronic possibilities. The lyrical melodies combined with rhythms flavored by a fusion of diverse influences will leave listeners with a sense that they've been part of a new musical renaissance in the making.
