Album available at

For the release of his anticipated debut solo album, "Let Us Shine," MC EVeryman has delivered 11 original tracks that expertly showcase his diverse musical influences. Never one to be pigeonholed, MC EVeryman writes songs that are meant to inspire the soul as well as get the party started. The "Let Us Shine" album finds the sharp-tongued lyricist paired up with a different cutting-edge producer (which include Sugarpill and Jupit3r from Headtron, plus Samples and AfroQben) on each song to capture the raw energy that has become EVeryman's trademark on-stage. From his well-received live performances with Pumpkin in their conscious hip-hop group, Little Giants, to the West Coast bass music scene where MC EVeryman has become a fan-favorite, the songs presented on "Let Us Shine" are great to get turnt up to as well as get lost in.

Gentle Giant

The Gentle Giant is the most recent moniker for the jack of all trades, master of none, Joshua Huot. This new chapter of musical composition & performance was developed after touring with Mansions On The Moon in early 2012 & performing multiple DJ sets all along the West Coast.

$10 - $45
