Vokab Kompany is a genre-defying masterpiece of sound comprised of vocalists Rob Hurt and Burke Baby. With live accompaniments by their four-piece band, they use heavy synths, guitars, bass and drums to create an innovative sound that blankets audiences and leaves them in a musical stupor. While maintaining a rigorous touring schedule, the San Diego natives have also found themselves as hometown favorites, garnering recognition at the San Diego Music Awards and winning several awards including best Hip Hop album and best Hip Hop performance; an interesting feat for a band that could just as easily be called Electronic, funk or rap in the same breath.

In addition to their accolades at home and on the road, Vokab has released several studio albums to critical acclaim. Their unique mesh of style has led them to delicious collaborations and over a dozen national syncs, including two Kia commercials, a STARZ and Southern Comfort placement, and music on TV shows like Franklin and Bash and the Today Show.
