Live Performance by

Representing St. Louis by way of Los Angeles, Hawthorne Headhunters is the musical collective fronted by Coultrain and Black Spade with additional members I, Ced and Proh Mic. A jam session at the HVW8 gallery solidified the group's identity and the creative relationship with it's owner resulted in an eponymous EP in 2009. With an approach similar to that of old Jazz musicians; organic and instinctual, drawing from whatever influences they were feeling and writing about whatever was on their mind, Hawthorne Headhunters have grown from a simple creative project into a full-fledged group with their 2012 Plug Research debut album.

Myriad Of Now is 14 tracks of powerful Black music that ambitiously combines Jazz, Electro, Funk, and more in one coherent project. Speaking on themes ranging from spirituality to sexuality, sometimes simultaneously, the album has given its auteurs the space to freely explore their own minds. Coultrain explains the significance behind the single's A-side "If You Were My Baby (Reprise)": "The subject matter touches on the chase of, surrender to, and polarization of love. Our message is that true love can be found through searching within, hence lines like 'the people who can't make love make money.'" Still, even when describing their own sound, 'Train never loses the kind of perspective that allows Hawthorne Headhunters to marry so many styles and topics so effortlessly, "these descriptions are only a small portion of what this is about. The songs importance and our feelings towards them evolve as we do. The listener decides what the song is about, what it means. It is up to their own interpretation, our story is only one perspective of an infinite amount."
