The brain child of Ben “b.heded” Hedman (Producer/ Songwriter) and “Sloppy" Joe Barnholt (Guitarist), Filthy T started in the summer of 2008. What was never supposed to leave the bedroom (where they recorded) has turned into a 5 year obsession. 3 CDs, countless concerts, and numerous sleepless nights later, Filthy T has emerged as a unique force in an ever changing but always well represented Denver music scene.
Having added some incredible talent to the band since its inception, the live show has transformed into not just a concert, but a spectacle. The bass hits hard thanks to the addition of bassist Kirby Beegles, the beats are dropped heavy by emerging drummer Adrian Hernandez, and the vocals are represented by one of the most talented vocalists in Colorado, Nikki Smith.
Check out a song, watch a video, catch a concert, but no matter how you take it in, don’t forget to… STAY FILTHY!
There are many lessons that come from age and experience. When one discovers such a thing, there's an inherent need to broadcast it to the world. This is that. With an eclectic variety of ages and experiences, Chicago based musicians Sidewalk Chalk are a force to be reckoned with.
The emcee, singer, keyboard, bass, drummer, trumpet, trombone, and tap dancer are the evolution of Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz superbly packaged into sounds that you've quite possibly never heard before. The legend Sam Cooke once sang, "Change is Gonna Come." Musically, change is already here. Upon the heels of the release of their debut full-length album, "Corner Store" (released 3/6/12 and co-produced with Greg Magers of Lupe Fiasco's The Cool), Sidewalk Chalk has already proven themselves worthy of a listen. They're sure to satisfy the cravings of anyone in love with music and hungry for something different.
Musicality, honesty, and intellect are becoming harder to find. Thankfully, Sidewalk Chalk's goal is to be heard by the world and inspire its inhabitants. Quickly on their way to becoming one of the most talented live bands of this generation, Sidewalk Chalk was named "Best Hip-Hop Act in Chicago of 2010" by the Chicago Reader. The group's Emcee, Rico Sisney, represented Chicago at the 2012 World Expo in Shanghai, China. They've been featured on CBS News Online, 2dopeboyz, and Guest of a Guest Los Angeles. On top of that, Sidewalk Chalk has shared the stage with artists such as J*Davey, Company of Thieves, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and ?uestlove of The Roots. Individually, members of the group have acted as musical director(s) for Brother Ali, toured with Jazzanova and played behind Buddy Guy and Talib Kweli.
So, wake up world and meet the rest of us at the "Corner Store". We'll be out front with Sidewalk Chalk.
Drop Switch is a modern sound hailing from Denver, Colorado. This 6-piece group plays a blend of hip-hop, rock and jazz. Denver Westword had this to say about their sound: "The group really shines because they are just that -- a group, and no single person is elevated above the product."
Drop Switch formed in December of 2011, since then they have shared the stage with a number of national artists. Asher Roth, Kids These Days, Eligh (of Living Legends) Aer, Logic, Tayyib Ali, Air Dubai and Chuck Inglish just to name a few. After gaining some momentum in Denver, they were invited to play at the 2012 Find Your Way Festival. FYW featured other artists such as Brother Ali, Hieroglyphics, Grieves, The Reminders, The Wailers and more.
