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.

In the project's existence, Daniel's debut e.p entitled, "4 Years E.P" has landed him an opening spot for bands like House of Heroes, SmashMouth, as well as back to back festival spots( 2014 and 2015) at Bunbury Festival (Cincinnati,Ohio) , one of USA Today's "Best Summer Music Festivals"(2014) and Forbes "10 Summer Music Festivals Worth Knowing"(2014), Paper City Music Festival (Chillicothe,Ohio) as well 4 dates on the 2015 Camplified Tour Roster.
