Faking Jazz

Faking Jazz was formed in the Southeastern college town of Tallahassee, Florida in early 2016. Amber Phillips and Nicholas Kielbasa met in school and began writing, producing, and performing music together shortly after. Pulling together an eclectic mix of tastes, Faking Jazz touches on genres such as R&B, hip-hop, funk, and soul mixed with electronics, drum machines, and “twinkly” guitar work.
