have proved to be a steady and rising star to hitch one’s wagon to. In addition to providing a platform for previously unknown singer Mary Lambert
with the “Same Love” hook, the group has helped shine a light on longtime hip-hop musician Wanz

’s and has performed with the groups The Ghetto Monks and Life Ring, is moving on up with his first solo EP out this summer.
