Smooth Hip Hop beats, old school samples and a whole lotta groove.
InnerVisionists is a hip-hop quintet whose music intersects various genres while staying firmly in the groove. IV's credo "ear candy for all" reflects their diverse and infectious sound. Their two Emcees, Amanu Kaiju and Homegrown favor self-reflection, social-political jabs, along with a playful party vibe that weaves narratives of the everyday.
Re-formed in 2012 after member changes, InnerVisionists has a soild, forward thinking line-up including: Anthony Bracco on Guitar, Benjamin Grimes on Bass, and Martin Rodriguez on drums. . Slated for their 1st EP release early April 2013 InnerVisionists continue to push the envelope while touching the soul and moving the body
Moritat is from the northwest side of Chicago. In 2003 Corey McCafferty (drums) met and played in a band called I/O with Konstantin Jace (bass). Venus Laurel (piano, vocals) then worked with Corey on her solo album and in 2008 the three of them moved into a house and formed Moritat. Drawing inspiration from Chicago's rich tradition of instrumental music and bands such as Sonic Youth, Bear Claw and Blonde Redhead, the group continually crafts their unique sound in their basement studio. Their self-produced EP, One Minute Fade, was released in June 2010.
Renegade drum and bass unit specializing in cloud/ghost.
Two-man band keeping it not so real:
Buda - not a God but very close to one. Bass, Drums, Slide Trombone, Vocals.
Roman - not an empire but aspiring to be one. Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Chimes.
Without releasing an album, 23-year-old Tom Schraeder garnered critical praise from his live performance at Lollapalooza, CMJ, and from demos which began circulating the States. After the positive response, Schraeder booked his third headlining show and released the compilation of demos to a sold out Chicago crowd. The EP was titled, "The Door, The Gutter, The Grave" because those are the three things Schraeder continues to have one foot in. Chosen as one of the Onion A.V. Club's "Top 5 Artists to Watch in 2008," his songwriting has been called, "earnest" and "adventurous" by CMJ.com. It inspired Chicago Magazine's Noah Isackson to declare, "Tom Schraeder [is] on the brink of stardom," and prompted Jim Derogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times to write, "sophisticated...a real talent."
Sometimes sweet, occasionally heartbreaking, and always sincere, Chicago’s Jennifer Hall writes music that looks back to an age long gone while buzzing with a youthful edge. Combining influences such as Edith Piaf, Patsy Cline, Ray Charles, Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, and Wilco, this vocalist, songwriter and veteran performer has always had a goal of simply making great music despite genre or trend. Her highly personal debut album, “In This,” is available now and features pop, jazz, soul, and rock influences with powerful and adept vocals at its core. In the past year, Jennifer and her band have taken the Chicago music scene by storm, playing with and singing alongside national touring acts including The Damnwells, Harper Blynn, The Lumineers, William Beckett of The Academy Is… and Grammy-nominated Matthew Santos. She has headlined Schubas and Subterranean, playing to packed houses. 2012 is shaping up to be even more exciting. Close friends with compatible sensibilities and a long history, Jennifer Hall and her band consistently deliver unique, sincere, and honest music.
Kate Adams is a Chicago singer-songwriter who brings a little vocal soul to her brand of acoustic folk. You can find her playing solo or as part of motown rockers The Sweats.
Karlis Kandero uses live, improvised looping to create ambient, densely layered musical landscapes. His background in jazz organ and complete lack of formal guitar training are both evident in his playing. Karlis uses an acoustic guitar and digital delay to create a sound that mixes harpsichord like high notes, long swells played in reverse and intentionally claustrophobic fingerpicking that sounds a bit like bells ringing in a video game. These compositions are never played the same nor are they meant to be preserved via recording.
