From Los Angeles, U.S.A.,
Impromp2 comprise of:
Johnny Britt (songwriter, lead vocals, keyboards and trumpet)
Sean E. Mac (songwriter, spoken word and rap)
Johnny Britt and Sean E. Mac teamed up in the early nineties.
They recorded a demo tape of some of their song and, along with the help of Paris Eley, they took an audition at Motown Records with Steve McKeever.
McKeever signed the two to Motown Records where they released 'You're Gonna Love It' in 1995.
The group teamed up with Irish producer Steve Harvey for the 'live' sessions as the group described them.
The set was received with critical acclaim and contained the popular tracks 'Enjoy Yourself', 'Summer Nights' and 'Get Me Off'.
'Can't Get Enough' followed in 1997, however, was poorly promoted despite being a fine set of melodies.
The band currently have a record deal with Big 3 Records, an album which will be distributed through Warner Bros.
The duo's third album is entitled 'The Definition of Love' and is set for a July release, 2003.
The set is produced by Steve Harvey (he is originally from Scotland), Keith Peltzer and Darrin Henson (Jill Scott's producers), Freddie Washington and Bernhard Penzias.
The album also features actress Kim Fields speaking on the first single entitled 'Mocha Soul', which is due to be aired in the U.S. on the Soul Train TV Show.
In 2003, Impromp2 prepared for a U.S. national tour.
2007 saw the release of 'It Is What It Is' on the JCS Records imprint.
Impromp2's sound is classified as 'rap' in some circles, however their sound is more part sung / part spoken over soulful and jazzy grooves.
