R.O.E. with NATIVE SUN

About R.O.E.:

With his hometown of Chicago on his back and the sounds of soul in his roots, R.O.E. blends an urban vibe with poetic lyricism and music that hits straight to the heart that will attract anyone with an affection for alternative hip hop.

Since his early days, R.O.E.'s message has revolved around an inquisitive boy-meets-world mentality with self-aware storytelling illustrating his everyday. On something bigger, something better, R.O.E. vibes a stirring and meaningful portrayal of life while pushing naysayers aside and Rising Over Envy.

In 2011, R.O.E.'s debut EP A Backpacker Named R.O.E. piqued the interest of Chicago-area fans and blogs immersed in the hip hop scene and started to entice radio spins with its soulful beats, unconventional hooks, compelling lyrics, and independent sound. With the debut marking his official foray into music, the EP's concept was simple: introducing his essence to the world. Its success would lead to video projects, larger shows, and nationwide tours. After building a foundation for his sound, R.O.E. dedicated the next couple years to growing his fanbase, collaborating with acclaimed producers, songwriting and offering the ultimate live experience with his full band, The Soulvillians.

The long-anticipated 2014 release of the To Happiness EP chronicles the Chicago emcee's mindset since A Backpacker Named R.O.E. and lives up to expectations with his signature artistic flow, clever writing, and the natural chemistry between the lyrics and beats. The 5-track EP's cohesive vision delivers a short, yet rich and experiential trip through what it's like to be him: an established artist traveling, reaching, living, and not letting negativity get in the way.

Today R.O.E.'s focus is on playing shows, touring, and producing videos to promote To Happiness while working on his first full length album.

About Native Sun:

This is Native Sun's answer to the question of how Indianapolis came to be nicknamed Nap Town. All too often, Indy locals lose faith in the spirit of their city and insist it's named so because it's a sleepy metropolis in the Midwest with nothing to do or see. This cultural crippling has subdued the drive to create in much of the city's talent by bogging down artists with despair and leaving them with little hope for a chance to gain national recognition.

But the native sons of Native Sun have a different outlook on their city of Nap. It is their belief that Indianapolis harbors a wealth of talent, particularly in the vein of hip hop. Leading by example, the band envisions that traditional hip hop elements (compelling lyricism, dusty samples, dope beats) paired with the versatility of live instrumentation has the potential to create music that sounds like nothing before it. Leveraging more than 20 years of combined experience as professional musicians and performers, B Meeks (bass),
Sleepy (drums) and B Young (emcee) began to intertwine their musical backgrounds within the context of hip hop when Native Sun formed in 2008. The resourceful musicians draw from their familiarity in gospel, rock, electronic, jazz and soul, creating music that sounds much bigger than what one would expect from a 3 piece act. It is this solid foundation in live music (as compared to produced beats) that sets Native Sun apart from other hip hop groups.

Through their vision to be an example of success to artists in Indianapolis and similar places, Native Sun has earned a reputation as a first-call backing band in the Indianapolis hip hop scene. They've had the honor of performing with Elzhi, formally of Slum Village, DJ Logic, as well as opening for Foreign Exchange, Musiq Soulchild, Mayer Hawthorne, Black Milk and Muhsinah. And now Native Sun has released the new EP, Undeniable.
