Whether they are second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing across the country, the Stooges Brass Band immerse crowds in a high-energy, cut loose vibe that's contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of city of New Orleans.
Richard Raw makes music that embraces all that is new school while staying true to the old is a rare talent among hip-hop artists. Because of this, it is musically refreshing to hear Richard Raw, an artist who gives his listeners a touch of musical genius with every song written, lyric spit, and beat produced. Born on August 17, 1979 in Wilmington Delaware, Raw displayed his passion for music at a very young age. He was raised listening to 70s music with Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and Stevie Wonder as some of his early favorites. Born on the cusp of the 1980s hip hop boom, the same year that hip hop entered the mainstream with Sugarhill Gang's hit song 'Rapper's Delight' and the year that Kurtis Blow became the first rapper to sign a major label record deal, it was inevitable that Raw would become immersed in hip hop.
