Sandman says of the tour: "The Dear Hunter Tour is in promotion of my latest Stones Throw release, 'All That I Hold Dear.' I'm blessed to join forces with two musicians also searching for substance, magic, brilliance, love, and truth. We're going to find them too. When we do, we're going to share them."

Homeboy Sandman
Homeboy Sandman is a musician. His genre is hip-hop. An emcee that prides himself on musical growth and evolution, he has adopted as his motto and creative mission statement, "Boy Sand like you've never seen him before. As usual."
Before signing to Stones Throw he'd already been chosen as a coach on MTV's MADE, featured in preeminent print hip-hop rags XXL and The Source, and perpetually championed on foremost online hubs. And since the signing, his accolades have extended beyond the realm of the hip hop specific. Rolling Stone has noted his "skill for wordplay that keeps you hooked." NPR has highlighted his "artful, hysterical, disobedient hip-hop that you can dance to." Pitchfork has straightforwardly dubbed him "one of the best pure lyricists around."

Open Mike Eagle
"One of LA's smartest young voices" says the LA Times...which the artist suspects, may just be a covert way of saying LA is dumb. "Open" Mike Eagle wouldn't terribly mind, being born and raised in Chicago where the painful winters and his uppity grandparents kept him inside as a youth. He spent his formative years watching alternative music happen on MTV and hoping to one day be able to audition for the Native Tongues. As a young adult after graduating with a degree in Psychology, he did the next best thing and moved to Los Angeles,
joining the Project Blowed collective where he made music and toured with Busdriver, Aceyalone, Abstract Rude, Nocando and more. He's also gained notoriety in the world of comedy by being invited by professional funny people (Paul F. Tompkins, Hannibal Buress, Matt Besser/UCB) to rap at their shows. He'd like to be rap's Kurt Vonnegut
but recognizes that he'd first have to create something as iconic as the four-stroke illustration of an anus. He practices by releasing rap albums that delight, entertain, and confuse.

Random aka Mega Ran
If you put video games, the 80's, hip-hop, soul music, jazz and standup comedy into a blender and hit "puree," you'd have something close to The Random Experience.
The former English teacher made waves by going way left of his backpack roots and combining 8-bit video game sounds and hard hitting hip-hop tracks, and has become a trailblazer in the budding subgenres of chiptune and nerd-rap. A licensing agreement with Capcom and admiration from the genre's toughest critics has led to performances at top festivals worldwide, constant tours, and placements in TV, movies, university coursework, and of course, games.
As Random as the name suggests, he is just as comfortable spilling his soul on thoughtful tracks as he is weaving through levels of his favorite video games.
Today, Random is no longer a teacher by title, but travels the world to entertain and educate through the seemingly unlikely pairing of intelligence and fantasy based hip-hop.
