Murmuration began in 2014 when The Colton and Zara Band decided to expand in number of members and in color of music. "Our name wasn't matching the skill of the other numerous members or the music we were heading towards with the expansion, so we thought it was time to find a unifying name for the sound we were becoming," says Colton and Zara. A Murmuration is a flock of starlings.Their roots are originally out of Independence, Kansas, though the members flocked from other regions of the country.
Ranging in ages 16-24, the former band has released 3 albums and singles, "You Are Love" and "Making Sound" that are currently airing on several radio stations nationwide and world-wide, along with Daily Unsigned Radio, Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, and Rdio.
Murmuration is adventurous in nature and style, spreading music worldwide that's fun and upbeat, yet also purposeful and encouraging in the lives of all ages. They've opened for bands such as Sanctus Real, We Are Leo, After Edmund, Par~a~digm Rock Band, and DaMac. Zara also added vocals onto the hip-hop album, "Man Up 116" song, "Envy", featuring Lecrae, Tedashii, KB, PRo, Trip Lee, and Andy Mineo. Their cover video of "Don't You Worry Child" was recently accepted into the Global Citizen Festival. They also recently won Daily Unsigned Radio's Project Aha competition, showcased for Belk Clothing Industry's "Modern Southern Music" competition, and were interviewed by PopVltr, That Music Mag, and Musician's Friend. They also played for Lifeway's Centrikid camp last summer. Their adventurous tour experiences cover a West Coast Tour, Nashville Tour, The Extreme Tour, and a Midwest Tour, performing more than 100 to 200 shows yearly in festivals, venues, and conferences.
