Now in its ninth year, The Beast is an innovative and electrifying hip hop and jazz ensemble, known for pushing creative boundaries and dynamic collaborations. Straight outta Durham, the cultural and entrepreneurial nexus of a new south, The Beast is a home-grown artistic force, mixing tap-dancers, puppeteers, and spoken word artists into its repertoire. Comprised of professor, community organizer, and emcee Pierce Freelon, keyboardist Eric Hirsh, drummer Stephen Coffman, and bassist Pete Kimosh, The Beast has thus far executed a Duke University-commissioned big band project, curated residencies at the North Carolina Museum of Art, and toured Panama as featured in a PBS web-series. The quartet is currently finishing its second full-length album with Philly-native producer/drummer Steve McKie (Bilal, Jill Scott, Musiq, et al).
"Young Bull is a fresh R&B duo hailing from Durham, North Carolina. Composed of high school friends Tahmique Cameron (singer) and Gabe Fox-Peck (producer/pianist), Young Bull draws on classic soul artists like Otis Redding and Stevie Wonder, simultaneously experimenting with the modern possibilities of electronic music. They have been described as "insanely talented,” meriting praise and sell-out shows at every turn since their inception in 2014. Young Bull’s first studio album, Sopadelic, is scheduled to be released in August 2016. Innovative, talented, and undeniably soulful, Young Bull is a force to be reckoned with in the R&B scene of the future."
"Autobiographical. Absolutely Classical." The quintet delivers hypnotic hip hop/jazz grooves laced with magnetic vocals sure to make your head nod!
