Meet UNCOMMON SOUND

UNCOMMON SOUND, formerly known as Bklyn Vibe, was created by Cordeone and is comprised of the artist, along with Roberto Robinson and Shelley Shellz.

This solid trio expands into a full ensemble for bigger stages, and brings together a wealth of experience and musical ingenuity, creating a broader sound that is both new and familiar.

Drawing inspiration from Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, Fado, Kompa, Brazilian and French music, the group introduces its main instrument, the accordion, as one of the most versatile and adaptable musical tools on the market. Traditionally used in folk and gypsy music, Cordeone aims to surprise audiences with the rich melodies it produces, inviting the public to get lost in the the vibe the group creates.

UNCOMMON SOUND has had the pleasure of performing at Rockwood Music Hall, The Groove, Nublu, and Barbes, to name a few.

Shelley SHELLZ

is a multi-instrumentalist from New York. Raised in a musical household, he drew his talent from his mother, a piano teacher, and his father, a violinist, in a home where music was not constrained by pop culture. He started his journey on the piano, then moved on to the drums, before settling on the bass and making it his own.

A graduate of Five Towns College, on Long Island, New York, the likes of Jaco Pastorius, Sting, and Thundercat heavily influenced his musical signature. Performing throughout New York City, Shellz regularly collaborates with fellow alumna Jordan King, among others.

He is currently putting the bones on his debut album, with a release date TBD.
