Composed of over 30 artists Snarky Puppy is a musical collective from Denton, TX that creates a fusion of jazz and progressive rock music. Led by composer, producer and bassist Michael League, the band came to life in 2004 while many of its members were students at the University of Northern Texas. The jazz fusion sound of Snarky Puppy's debut release, 2005's Live at Uncommon Ground, was well-received by its college peers, but it was the band's follow up album The Only Constant, which catalyzed a tour after its release in 2006, that widened the band's audience beyond its Texas roots. League is highly regarded in jazz circles as one of the drivers behind nu jazz and was featured in Cicily Janus's 2010 book, The New Face of Jazz: An Intimate Look at Today's Living Legends and the Artists of Tomorrow.
