Injunuity is a Native American flute-centric roots group forged in 2007 by award winning composers Brad Clonch (Mississippi Choctaw) and Jeff Carpenter (Chickasaw). Since their inception Injunuity has released three full length albums; snatched up multiple national music awards; performed across the US and Europe; and has been featured in radio, tv, documentaries, and feature length films.
Injunuity’s primary focus is to preserve the Native American flute, an instrument almost lost to the North American Indians during the turn of the 1900’s. Solo pianist Brad Clonch was gifted his first flute by a Chickasaw in early 2002. His piano work brought him to a career with the Chickasaw Nation tribal government in Oklahoma, where he met fellow band member Jeff Carpenter and a duo was formed.
Immediately this cultural sound and blend of genres drew attention, leading to the addition of other members. Philip Sullivan and Brian Harrison began work with Brad and Jeff through Chickasaw Multimedia, a media group owned and operated by the Chickasaw Nation. Through preserving tribal history with their film work and documentaries, Brian and Philip were a perfect addition to the musical group Injunuity.
All four band members did not grow up traditionally native, as throughout American history, some families censored and suppressed their Native American ancestry. Through their film work and music of Injunuity, each has drawn a deep spiritual connection to the past and to where they came from; even prompting members Philip Sullivan and Brian Harrison to trace their ancestry and roots to both the Choctaw and Cherokee tribes.
The inspiration drawn for all original tracks and compositions are based off the ability to experience tribal culture and life daily in Oklahoma, as well as interaction among other tribes, historians, storytellers, and even trips to the original homelands of the Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Cherokee people. Native Americans have profoundly helped shape the United States. The music of Injunuity helps revisit these times and keep them alive through song.
Injunuity’s music promotes the introduction of Native American music and history into popular culture, helping break stereotypes about Native Americans and the music within the Indian Culture. Simply put, "we're not your grandfather's flute music!"
