That raw intellectual hiphop sound provided by DMV's highly anticipated unsigned artist Kevin Sinatra, has not gone unnoticed.  With features in 2dopeboyzHipHopHundreddjbooth, and many more Kevin continues to drop classic bangers.  While covering one of his early 2017 projects "Sleep Paralysis", Earmilk gave a highlight to his lyrics, stating that  "he's making a poignant statement about young black males at the hands of the very institutions (such as police, i.e "angels") built to protect them but instead suffer due to being undervalued in western society."

She has one of those voices that will make you stop doing what you're doing, making you fall into the beauty of the sound she creates.  

 

Lamusicblog: Kiki Halliday’s angelic, breathy vocals and simplistic, yet universally reaching instrumentals immediately reels you in. Her songwriting is intimate, yet shrouded in a somber beauty that invites the listener in rather than alienating him or her with overly complex arrangements or technical implementations.

It’s songwriting akin to her influences such as Fiona Apple and Jenny Lewis, and it’s a breathe of fresh air in an LA music scene encumbered by DJs and electronically driven artists. The singer-songwriter grew up in LA knowing that music was important to her, but it was a gradual ascension toward discovering her passion for it.

Jillian Goldfluss from LAMusicBlog spoke with the budding musician about post-college life moving from the suburbs to the sprawling LA metropolis and pursuing her artistic aspirations, day by day...Read here. (source:lamusicblog)

 

 About

Kiki Halliday is a singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles. Her music pulls together different aspects of blues, pop and soulful sounds to create something that is bright yet vulnerable. She is a lyricist to the core, however she maximizes her sound by pairing uncomplicated chord progressions with words that will take ahold of you, willingly or not, and bring you down beyond the surface. Her live set has a noticeable easygoing, Southern California vibe as she plays the guitar well and interacts with the crowd in a way that’s honest and whole-souled.

Kiki released her first complete work, “The Love Notes EP”, in November 2014. “Love Notes” was recorded in its entirety with Scott Frankfurt (has worked with Whitney Houston, Barbara Streisand, John Legend) at his studio in Woodland Hills, CA. What’s interesting here is that Kiki can move fluidly across genres without seeming too bound to anything. This has allowed her the opportunity to work on projects including a collaboration with LA producer/DJ Matt DiMona on his debut EP, Up All Night, where she co-wrote and sang on the synth, R&B infused track, “Next 2 U” and another with Philadelphia-based hip-hop artist and rapper, Frzy, on his upcoming album God King Slave.  Her music has also been featured on the TV show The Young and the Restless, and her song “Beautiful Soul” will be included in the upcoming motion picture I’m Not Ashamed, due out in theaters October 21st.

Kiki continues to put on live shows in the LA and San Diego area- depending on the night you may be able to catch an intimate acoustic session or hear her music come alive during a set with her bandmates. There are melodies coming out of this young, raw talent that may land anywhere and that’s what makes it exciting to see what she will do next. (source:kikihalliday.com/about/

CDA Management, a full-service artist management company representing a variety of talent in the areas of film/television, modeling, music, comedy, and dance brings yet another phenomenal hip hop lyricist stemming from the home of the black and yellow - LegenDerry a premier up and coming rapper born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA.  Like fellow Pittsburgh MCs, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, LegenDerry found his musical muse at a very young age. After discovering his musical talent and ambition, he placed his focus on writing, recording, and producing his own music. Through his undying ambition and versatile lyrics, it is evident that LegenDerry stands apart from the rest.  For instance check his Pure Imagination project; the track titled Pure Imagination produced by Breaux provides a good example of the quality of sound, style, flow and maturity in LegenDerry's voice - plus its a sick track. 

LegenDerry credits his creativity to his father, who was the vocalist for a punk-rock band in his youth. Coming from a musical family background, LegenDerry found his passion for his own style through a musical technology class in high school. There, he began making beats, recording vocals, and learning production. He started a rap group in 9th grade, which received backlash and caused controversy throughout his school. He was bullied for being a white rapper, and eventually relocated to a different high school for his senior year.

One of the most crucial moments in LegenDerry’s career, was his first studio session at MCM studios in Pittsburgh, PA. Everything came naturally - he laid down his first official tracks, and the rest is history. There, he discovered a unique style which is embedded in each of his verses to this day. LegenDerry possesses an extremely original and articulate flow, separated from the competition by his lyrical genius.

Damn, from VA to NYC, multi-talented hip hop musician and artist (see here), Will Porter quietly released a dope a$$  8-track solid hip hop project in 2016 titled Mansa Muse. Literally every track made the head bop with stank face and all that. Straight fire. Beats dope (ohh especially Finger Painting), voice right, lyrics and flow right, with each track having an overal chill, soul grungy, hip hop vibe.

Before releasing this project however, this man has been working.  Within the span of only a few months releasing a few projects back to back, also containing straight - for instance 'Back to Basics'. I think those 17.9k listeners agree as well.  

Artist Bio: 

Will Porter is a multidimensional visual and performance artist. His strong knowledge of color, form and movement allow him to create moments that transcend the physical piece itself. His acrylic and oil pastel works both exhibit an overstanding of line manipulation that suggests movement, allowing the observer to navigate throughout them and experience something new in each direction. Building such a solid foundation in art allowed for these same attributes to permeate into his music and poetry. He has an innate storytelling ability, directly reflective of his ability to paint such vivid imagery, driven by a cadence reminiscent of his brush strokes. Ranging from sporadic to disciplined, as to create a controlled chaos.

Will was born and raised in Flint, MI. Being a sponge in such a vibrant and dynamic city as Flint in the 1990's, it's no wonder that his passion for art sprouted at such a young age. Will, affectionately known as Junior by family, began drawing at the age of 4. He was under the study of his older brother, Jeremy Cooper. Jeremy being very skilled in pencil and graphite, would instruct Will to recreate many different video game and cartoon characters. including, but not limited to, Mortal Kombat, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Super Mario Bros. This addition of technical drawing to his infinitely creative mind birthed a black and white framework that he was eager to fill with color. He took every art class available in school from first grade to freshman year in college.

In 2001, Will and his family moved to Stafford, VA. The significant contrast in scenery and aesthetic was yet another catalyst of growth for Will's creativity. His medium of choice shifted from tempura paint, to the more robust oil pastels, and oil and acrylic paints. He was able to transform his formerly flat, and one dimensional paintings into pieces that showed great promise of form and depth. Will worked tirelessly on projects both in and outside the classroom so that he could sharpen his talents.

In 2009, with encouragement and a letter of recommendation from his high school art teacher, Stephanie Athanasaw, Will was accepted into the VCU School of Arts program. He was quickly humbled by the advanced and ambitious work of the students there.Being forced to adapt, Will met the challenge head on. Excelling at times, while failing with confidence at others. His time at VCU would be short lived due to financial woes, but even after returning home to work, what he'd learned on that campus, remained in him.

He continued the path of self improvement, pushing the limits of his gift with each new piece he created. Creating works that were more personal and without parameters allowed for Will to extend his total body of works to upward of 500. He has been quoted as stating "...art became so fluid for me, to the point where it's easier most times to communicate through paintings than through words." This surgence of work catapulted Will to becoming a standard in the culture of art and not just a student. Needing a larger platform to showcase his large catalog of work, Will made the transition from Virginia to New York in December of 2015.

Since being in the big city, Will has landed full time employment as a dog walker while juggling art, music and poetry into all the time in between. He has worked alongside musician/curator Steff Reed in shining a light on police brutality and systematic oppression, collaborated with actress/vocalist and cinematographer Angelica Jackson in the creation of her groundbreaking docuseries "The Grind BK", while also making his presence known in multiple venues throughout New York; either by opening up the space with his artwork, or commanding an audience with his music and poetry.

One of those spots being Brooklyn's own Backdrop. A venue that focuses on providing the space and a welcoming environment for creatives to come inspire and be inspired. Will is only just getting started, so to avoid missing his amazing journey of self exploration, be sure to use the links available on this site to familiarize yourself with his social media, soundcloud, art gallery and more. Since I've caught you up to speed with the artist, I'd like to introduce myself. Hi, I'm Will Porter :) welcome to my page. Explore it with open senses. - Will Porter
