Eclipse Movement (Cincinnati)
Eclipse came together in Cincinnati in 2005 with a tight, hybridized sound and killer live show, becoming a big draw on the Cincinnati club circuit. The seven-piece group is fronted by deft Hip Hop MCs Jibri McPherson and Rich Rone, who deliver old-school chemistry and hooks over a dynamic backdrop that mixes Funk, Hip Hop, Rock, Pop, Classical, Latin and World music and is performed by a crew of exceptional local musicians. Eclipse’s eclectic groove has been presented in recorded form on a pair of albums, including the masterful Around the World, released in 2011. The band has scored multiple Cincinnati Entertainment Awards for Best Hip Hop.
