Vertical Current, also known as VC, was started in 2009 by trumpeter/composer Christopher Stevens, Donald C. Stevens Jr. (Bass) and Brandon Mullen (Drums). They were later joined by Ali Prawl (Keys) and Jordan Damiani (Guitar). Since forming in 2009, the band has worked with artists such as Jessica Reedy, Leah Smith, Jeff Murrell, Noel Gourdine, and Dezzie Neal. Some of the band's highlights include performing at the Lancaster Ave Jazz Fest, the Center City Jazz Fest, the Collingswood Mayfair, and opening for The Robert Glasper Experiment at World Cafe Live. In 2010, Vertical Current collaborated with local hit-maker Donald Robinson to make their debut EP "aRe". This year the band worked with young super producer, Steve Mckie, to record their first full length cd which will be entitled "Bright Side of Midnight". Over the course of the last year or so the band has grown to include vocalists Chartel Findlater and Shelia Moser. VC has also been known to have a surprise guest on occasion. For instance the band was joined by Eric Roberson at a recent show. Individually, members of this band have recorded and performed with a wide variety of artists from Earth Wind & Fire to Darryl Hall so you never know who might show up. VC's brand of music is a unique blend of genres that is intended to uplift and inspire.

Smooth jazz-styled soprano saxophonist Marion Meadows was born in West Virginia and raised primarily in Connecticut; after adopting the classical clarinet at age nine, he moved to the saxophone as a teen, later studying composition and arranging at Boston's Berklee College of Music. A protege of Joe Henderson and Eddie Daniels, Meadows later served a long stint as a member of Norman Connors' Starship Orchestra; after a series of session dates and sideman gigs, he made his solo debut in 1990 with the RCA release For Lovers Only, followed in 1992 by Keep It Right There. Resurfacing two years later with Forbidden Fruit, after 1995's Body Rhythm Meadows jumped to Discovery to issue 1997's Pleasure. Another Side of Midnight followed in 1999; Next To You appeared a year later.
I recorded "Forbidden Fruit" in 1994, which featured Derek Bramble and Eric Benet, Michael Bearden, Morris Pleasure, Christian Warren, Johnny Britt, Yutaka Yokokura, Vana Gierig, Norman Connors, Bobby Lyle, Ricardo Silvera, Don Grusin, Dori Cyammi, Jimmy Johnson, Luis Conti, Michael Shapiro, Joe Melotti and SWV.



1996 was the year "Body Rhythm" hit the streets with guest appearances by Bob Baldwin, Jacques Burvick, Yasha Barjona, Asha, Blake, Bobby Allenda and many more.

I released "Pleasure" in 1997. This work included Michael Bearden, Waymon Tisdale, Marc Dorsey, Norman Brown, Omar Hakim, Victor Bailey, Bashiri Johnson, Rohn Lawrence, Nikki Richards, Jean Norris, Jeff lee Johnson and Chielli Minnucci.

After moving from my home in Connecticut to Phoenix, Arizona, I signed with Heads Up International and recorded released CD number six, "Another Side of Midnight" (1999) with my good friends on board again such as Michael Bearden, Omar Hakim, Bob Baldwin, Chip Shearin, Rohn Lawrence, Norman Brown, Tom Browne and Marc Antoine, and disc seven, "Next To You" (2000). Both discs have been well-received. "In Deep", my third recording for the label, was released in July of 2002, and features writing and production by Michael Broening, and esteemed artists such as Will Downing, Ray Obiedo and Julio Fernandez, among others.


I've been involved in a lot of projects, both my own and group efforts, and my main objective is to keep growing as an artist and engage the fans who have invested so much emotion in my music and my career. Aside from that wonderful sense of live communication, the real magic for me happens in the studio when I put on those headphones and begin to play. That's where the ideas just start to flow. Everything else in my musical life comes out of that moment.

The English vernacular meaning of the word “Mosaic” simply indicates a picture or decoration made of small, usually colored pieces of inlaid stones that portrays an eclectic piece of art. In a quest to form a band that encompasses different musical genre’s such as hip-hop, be-bop , blues , go-go , rock and roll , R&B, Neo soul, pop  and other musical idioms, a young man by the name of Jermaine Bryson ( aka Husky Bruiser) decided to bring together an amazing group of musicians from all walks of life to fulfill his vision.
