New Primitives was founded in Minneapolis in 2003 by drummer, singer, songwriter Stanley Kipper. Earlier in southern California, Stan played, recorded, or toured with Minnie Riperton, The Bee Gees, Joe Walsh, Bill Withers, former Eagle Randy Meisner, Jay Ferguson, Andrew Gold, Karla Bonoff, Melanie, and Gypsy. The hits these artists made influenced Stan in making his own music. New Primitives musicians come from a variety of strong musical backgrounds. Stan is on drums, Chico Perez on congas and percussion, Jesse Kiel on bass, Andrew Wozniak on lead guitar, Lightnin' Joe Peterson on B3 and Brian "Snowman" Powers on saxophone. The music is Funky R & B/American Reggae with world music influences.

"If Bob Marley, Santana and the Neville Brothers threw a party, they'd hire New Primitives!"
