The history: The Infatuations are a Neo-Soul band based in Detroit, MI. Heavily influenced by the music of 60's and 70's, The Infatuations play a unique amalgamation of Soul, R&B, Funk and Pop with a Rock twist, creating dance grooves with undeniable pop hooks behind lyrics that are fun to sing along with and easy to relate too. Christian Draheim (guitar) & Marco Lowe (vocals) knew each other from playing music with different bands in Detroit, but it wasn't until January of 2009 when they decided to collaborate on a few ideas to see "what would happen" that they realized they shared the same passion and vision for what would become The Infatuations. Marco knew the perfect drummer, Jeff Lee (from Peoria, IL), who came out to the 1st show and sat in with Christian and Marco for entire night. The three completed 5 songs and started to record when Christian invited friend and bass player, Aaron Julison into the band for recordings and Jimmy McCammon for live shows. The Infatuations EP "January Sessions" was released in April of 2009 and then released digitally in August of 2009. In September of 2009 Rico Grazioli joined as Percussionist and Chris Polite joined as Rhythm Guitarist.

January Sessions is currently available online at the following stores: iTunes (US, UK/European Union, Japan, Canada, Australia/N.Z.) - Rhapsody - Amazon Music - Napster - Lime Wire - IMVU - eMusic - Shockhound - Amie St

What's up with the name: There's a fine line between love and infatuation.

The style: Soul, R&B, Funk and Pop with a Rock twist
