with Lil Trxptendo, femdot. Tobi lou's an imaginative rapper-singer, born in Nigeria--but raised in Chicago. His expressive creations latched onto music and developed a playful, soulful sound. His visual single "TROOP", off of his forthcoming 'Cult Classic' album, went viral--while garnering the attention and expressive renditions of music aficionados alike. While the single acted as more of a teaser introducing the young artist, "TROOP" took a giant leap forward with a chorus and feature from St. Louis rapper Smino. The Glassface-directed visual, shot by Russ Fraser, accompanies the song, and finds tobi lou in an animated world, surrounded by symbolism that represents his influences - such as the cartoon bear associated with Kanye West, and a cartoon of Pharrell Williams wearing his signature N.E.R.D. hat.

with Raye Zaragoza As world travelers for nearly two decades, Rising Appalachia have merged multiple global music influences with their own southern roots to create the inviting new folk album, Leylines. Remarkably the band has built its legion of listeners independently -- a self-made success story that has led to major festival appearances and sold-out shows at venues across the country.Founded by sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, the band established an international fan base due to relentless touring, tireless activism, and no small degree of stubborn independence. However, for the first time, they opted to bring in a producer for the new album, teaming up with the legendary Joe Henry on the sessions. These were also their first recording sessions outside of the South. For 10 days, all six band members lived and recorded in a castle-like studio in Marin County, California, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. As a result, a sense of unity and immediacy can be heard throughout their seventh album, Leylines.As far as recording goes, were open creatively, but weve often preferred elements of live recording. I mean, were folk musicians at our core, Leah explains. The experience of playing music together in one room, looking at each other, is the bedrock of what we do and how weve grown up with music. I think Joe very much felt that way as well. He was very clear at the beginning that he was going to encourage us to have as many element of a live recording as possible.Although Leah and Chloe Smith consider their voices as their primary instrument, Leah also plays banjo and bodhran on the album, while Chloe plays guitar, fiddle, and banjo. They are joined on Leylines by longtime members David Brown (stand-up bass, baritone guitar) and Biko Casini (world percussion, ngoni), as well as two new members: West African musician Arouna Diarra (ngoni, talking drum) and Irish musician Duncan Wickel (fiddle, cello). The sonic textures of these two cultures are woven into Leylines, enhancing the stunning blend of folk, world, and urban music that has become Rising Appalachias calling card."Our songwriting ties into those traditions as well, Chloe says. With some of our original songs, its a reflection of the times. Were folk singers and we consider this a folk album, so theres a lot in there. Theres word of politics, of being women in the music industry, as well as a lot about our lives on the road.Indeed, Rising Appalachia has toured British Columbia by sailboat, traversed the U.S. and Europe by train, and engaged in immersive cultural exchange programs in Bulgaria, Ireland, Southern Italy, Central and South America not to mention the countless miles in a van. Tour highlights include: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco; Music Hall Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York; Boulder Theatre in Boulder, Colorado; and the Showbox in Seattle, Washington. The band consistently sells between 400 and 1500 tickets wherever they play, a testament to their loyal fan base.Leah and Chloe grew up in urban Atlanta as the citys hip hop scene began to flourish. They absorbed those rhythms through the music they heard at school, then traveled with their family to fiddle camps all across the Southeast on the weekends. The young girls werent all that interested in the old-time playing, but their parents were incredibly devout in their study and practice of Appalachian music.After high school, Leah decided to postpone college and travel internationally. Feeling homesick while living in Southern Mexico, she looked for a connection to her past and taught herself how to play banjo. I realized that I wanted something from home that I could share, something that would tell people a bit more of the story of where I came from, other than the news, she recalls.A few years later, when Chloe came to visit her abroad, Leah offered some clawhammer banjo lessons. They didnt necessarily realize it at the time but a musical partnership had been established. Upon their return to the United States, they recorded an album, which they considered an art project, to sell whenever they sang at farmers markets. They printed 500 copies, figuring that would last them a lifetime. However, when a local college professor heard them singing at a Christmas party, he booked them as part of a Celtic holiday concert in Atlanta. After two performances, every CD had been sold.Surprised and overwhelmed, they mulled over a career as full-time musicians, then realized that performing could be just one component of a greater overall vision one that includes advocating for social justice, racial justice, environmental justice, and Indigenous rights.Were able to filter in so many of our passions into this project, Chloe says. We do a lot of activism work. We do a lot of outreach. Leah is a visual artist and she can funnel her visual eye into the project. I love to write, so that comes in. Theres a big container and canvas for our lifes work here. Music is part of it, but there are a lot of other creative vehicles that are driving Rising Appalachia.Special guests on Leylines include folk hero Ani DiFranco, soulful songwriter Trevor Hall, and jazz trumpeter Maurice Turner. The album title alludes to the concept of invisible lines believed to stretch around the world between sacred spaces, bonded by a spiritual and magnetic presence. That deep sense of connection is key to understanding Rising Appalachia as a whole.Rising Appalachia has come out of this idea that we can take these traditions of southern music that weve been born and raised with and we can rise out of them, creating all these different bridges between cultures and stories to make them feel alive. Leah says. Our music has its foundation in heritage and tradition, but were creating a music that also feels reflective of the times right now. Thats always been our work.

Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Ron Pope, has been navigating a sea change as of late. In the immediate aftermath of the birth of his first child, before hed found his footing in this extraordinary new reality, a jarring incident left him contemplating his own mortality. After completely scrapping early recording sessions for the upcoming album Bone Structure (TBA, 2020), Pope set out on a new path, crafting incredibly candid songs directed squarely at his newborn daughter. Some songs speak to her directly and muse on the experience of fatherhood, while others reflect on a personal experience that has a lesson or a moral. Pope's 2017 release, the critically-claimed "Work" drew comparisons to Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, while also refusing to put him squarely into one category. Uncompromising and relentless, Pope has evolved into one of the top grossing independent acts in the business while garnering a legion of devoted fans the world over. Taking the industry-road-less-traveled and holding fiercely to his independence has proven fruitful for Pope; to date, he has sold out shows on three continents and in more than 20 countries, sold over 2 million digital tracks, had over 350 million streams on Spotify, 825 million plays on Pandora, 150 million views on Youtube, and has more generally crushed every metric used to measure what is possible for independent artists.

with Savannah Conley Columbus, Ohio trio Caamp formed when Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall met and bonded over a shared love of music and a shared love of home, specifically the inspiration they culled from the Midwest lives they grew up in. The two began writing and performing and quickly grew a rabid fan base. A self-titled 2016 debut album took flight, quickly gaining over 52 million streams, with a staggering 25 million streams for their single Vagabond alone. The bands fan base is no fluke, Caamps live shows are transcendent, communal experiences and theyll take their show to new places throughout 2019. Evan and Taylor brought on a third member and longtime friend, Matt Vinson, to join on bass just before recording their newest album By and By, out July 26th on Mom + Pop Records. By and By broadens Caamps repertoire without sacrificing the intimate feel of their early work.
