There is a difference between good and great music. You know the difference because you’ve felt it. You’ve seen great performers and been thankful for that once in a lifetime opportunity. You’ve listened to their albums and noticed how the rest of your busy life, for a moment, seems to go on hold. And you’ve hit the dance floor running, gathering your friends, making sure that you’re all in the same place to celebrate that song—and that moment--together.

We know the difference too.

The Intentions were built to perform with the same energy, urgency, and passion as their icons: Aretha Franklin, Sam & Dave, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, and so many more. Their 11-piece band was assembled to achieve the driving sound that characterized Hitsville USA and Stax nearly fifty years ago. And they were formed with sincerity and dedication to create memories and melodies that would last a lifetime.

Today, The Intentions have become a true double threat. Not only are they continuing to wow audiences with their dynamic and inspired private parties, they have now also set out with their own original music. Inspired by the soul revival championed by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, The Quantic Soul Orchestra, and Amy Winehouse, The Intentions have utilized the vintage analog recording techniques of the 60’s to record their debut album, scheduled for release June 7th 2014.

With one foot planted deeply in the roots of the past, and the other stretching forward into the future, The Intentions continue to do what they set out to do: make great music.
