label me lecter
label me lecter is an alternative hip hop band from Columbus Ohio. created in 2013, rapper/producer, Brian Penn decided to start a band after ending his career as a solo hip hop artist. he approached his good friend and drummer/producer, Michael Rist and the duo was set. the bands name is a clever play on words that means "call me crazy." their style, sound and show presentation leaves the audience waiting for the unexpected. upbeat production, precise wordplay that delivers true to life content, live drums, piano notes, mid song break downs and fun choruses is the LML sound. after two years of writing and recording, they released their first single, "GO!", December 22nd, 2015. their independent EP debut "sirens x silence" released in March of 2016 to phenomenal reviews.
over the last year and a half, LML's fanbase has consistently grown in the ohio market; mostly Columbus. they opened for K.FLAY in October (2017) to a sellout crowd and rave reviews. their most recent headline show in November (2016) @ A&R Bar, one of Columbus' premiere venues for live music, reached a capacity close to 350. their honesty and self awareness both on and off stage seems to resonate with their listeners creating a natural grass roots style following. the band released their first music video to "count on you" (an ode to the fans, friends and listeners) and are in the writing and recording stages of a follow up ep project, slated for a march 2018 release. stay tuned.
Born in the cloudy confines of the Eastern air temple, Jean Kong, learned to master the art of music production and emcee at an early age. Around the same time, Patrenzo Kennedy, citizen of the City of Ba Sing Se, was learning to hone his own skills by producing beats and moving boulders. Unbeknownst to the others, Marcus Smith of the Northern Water Tribe was preparing his talents and training in the ancient art of rhyme.
Years later, after each of the guys lost their original tribes to migration at the hands of the new Fire Lord, Patrenzo Kennedy, Jean Kong, and Marcus Smith vowed to band together to protect the music and world that they love.
They chose a name that would strike fear into the hearts of wack ass artists. SANKURO
