A soulful throwback to simpler times, this record is something you would likely hear at a family reunion or a summer BBQ. Its funky, jazzy and soulful will have you grooving the entire time. Reminiscent of Herbie Hancock, Headhunters and Bennie Maupin!


‘Wide Open’ is a slow ‘70s - like tune. I previously recorded this song for my debut EP Sketch (Corey Fonville played on this track). Corey told me how perfect that song would be with Butcher Brown and then a year later I decided to bring it down to Richmond and record it.

‘Hymn’ is a tune that I composed in memory of Trayvon Martin, Eric Gar- ner, Mike Brown, and the numerous other black kids that have been killed due to racial injustice.

‘Ooooo' is a groove tune that I wrote the first half to and couldn't figure out what to do with it. When I brought it to the studio session, DJ Harrison lis- tened to it and within five minutes wrote the catchiest bridge, and then we immediately recorded a couple takes. This song is something you would hear at a family reunion or a summer BBQ. Because of this, I released it about a week ago as our first single and its already gotten about 3000 plays.

‘DMV’ is another original composition of mine and in my opinion it perfectly encapsulates what it sounds like when you're from the DC Maryland Vir- ginia area. Its a unique blend of Jazz, Gospel, and R&B and that what makes the our sound so different from people that live in other places. Also I believe it’s this connection that Butcher Brown and I have that made the recording process so seamless. We recorded the whole project in one af- ternoon with only two or three takes, and I had never played with them be- fore. We all just understand where everyone is coming from.”

The album was recorded at Jellowstone Records in September 2014 and mixed at Montrose Studios in May 2015.
