About The Compass Rose Quartet
An diverse gathering of young and masterful musicians from the proud clever town of Madison, WI. The Compass Rose employs pop songwriting with an urban feel that is rooted in acoustic instrumentation. Notably, Mike Droho on guitar and vocals, Scott Lamps on upright bass and vocals, Ida Pajunen on violin and vocals, and last, but maybe most significantly shaping this unique sound is Anthony “The Soundshaker” Lamarr, the vocal percussionist. The band is high off the heals of their recent debut album release “These Parts Unknown.” An ambitious collections of songs blurring the borders between, hip-hop, folk, orchestral, a cappella, and rock & roll.
