Urban Method is a dynamic, all vocal hip-hop group from Denver, Colorado. The group is credited for creating a unique blend of A Cappella and Hip-Hop music known as “Rap-A-Pella.”
Boasting an eclectic group of studio musicians, Urban Method burst onto the scene during the fall of 2011 when they secured a spot on NBC’s nationally televised talent competition, The Sing-Off. As one of the 16 groups to appear on Season 3 of The Sing-Off, Urban Method pushed its way into the finals with their cutting-edge sound, hard hitting rhythm section, female leads, and a captivating rap artist. Although being credited as the innovators of “Hip-Hop-appella,” Urban Method thrills all ages with music spanning multiple genres from Country and R&B, to Pop and Rock.
Urban Method’s rthyms and high-energy will pull you in and convince you that all musical styles are possible through the human voice.
Urban Method is the latest in a series of arts-connected groups hosted by the Embassy, with the objective of creating ties between American and Jordanian societies through shared culture. More information about the group.
