Savoy is a musical group from Boulder, now living in Brooklyn, consisting of Producer Gray Smith, Guitarist Ben Eberdt, and drummer Mike Kelly.[1]


Savoy's musical style fuses the classic sound of rock 'n' roll with techno, dance, and bass music, a genre they've championed known as ERM (Electronic Rock Music).[2] Savoy's performances feature live instrumentation (drums and guitar),[3][4] extensive lighting and laser production,[5] as well as vocals from grammy nominated artist Heather Bright,[6] Chali 2na, and more.[7][8]

Since 2009, Savoy has released 2 full-length album[6] and 3 EPs including their 2014, 15 track release, "Self Predator",[9] and their latest 2015 EP, "1000 Years" (Monstercat),[10] which reached #3 on the iTunes Dance Chart.[11]

Savoy has performed at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Wakarusa, X Games, Voodoo Experience, Spring Awakening, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival, Mysteryland, and more. The group has also headlined Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2012[12] and 2015 and embarked on 5 headlining US tours.[13][14]
