Creation is catharsis. With this poignant phrase in mind, Curt Summers, a New Jersey rapper dedicated to spilling his heart with every line he writes, paints pictures of his life. A lifelong poet and lover of literature, his meticulous rhyming intrigues the most brilliant of minds while his penchant for storytelling allows for people from all walks of life to relate to his songs. A true rose from the concrete, his only goal is to make people “feel” and find comfort in being their genuine selves, no matter what society expects or prefers. He recently released his heartfelt "Amour" EP and is gearing up for the release of "Chamomile," his self-described best work to date. Welcome to his world.


Manasseh Croft known as “Manasseh” was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. He has always possessed the gift of music which started with his mother, whom herself was a vocalist. He is currently working as a vocal/session coach and songwriter in which lends his assistance and talents to local singers and rappers. He has performed at a number of venues and is a favorite/regular performer with Sofar Sounds.

Hailed as “Chicago’s sultry new home-girl”, Kaycee Shakur, also known as Black Shego, has captured an undeniable sound derived from the integration of her musical influences and life experiences. With her theatrical background and natural creative ability, she has cultivated a fresh new wavy sound dipped in the foundation of Neo Soul/ Hip Hop. As an advocate for the city that is her birth place, KayCee aims to be in the forefront of the underground renaissance that is sweeping the Chicago music scene. The mission is to abolish negative stereotypes that cast a dark shadow over the city’s culture by capitalizing on its beautiful qualities. How will she accomplish this? Well as Chicago’s self-appointed music vigilante, she plans to dispel these adverse convictions one project at a time; starting with her debut E.P. Divination E.P.
