"sexy, mysterious, mod-à-go-go romps through pop's eccentric European past"
-Rolling Stone

NYC Vocalist Sami Stevens combines Jazz, Experimental and classic RnB sensibilities to forge a truly unique voice in original music. A graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, Sami has performed with world renowned jazz pianist Jason Moran and 6-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch, recorded with eclectic Foetus composer J.G. Thirwell,  "King of Treme" Shannon Powell, and underground legend Gary Wilson, opened for Grammy nominated folk singer Greg Brown and Black Star MC Talib Kweli, and collaborated with Simon Hanes of Gorilla Toss/Cloud Becomes Your Hand/Tredici Bacci and world champ drummer Thomas Pridgen. Her projects have been lauded by publications like Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and the New York Times.

Kazemde George is an African American Jazz saxophonist, composer, and beat-maker, raised by Caribbean parents in Berkeley, California. He lives in Brooklyn, and performs and teaches around New York City. During his childhood, he was exposed to a wide range of musical styles, and has been playing Piano, Saxophone, and Percussion from an early age. Kazemde developed a passion for Jazz as he began to recognize it as one of the most impressive and powerful cultural heritages in the US. He also makes electronic music under the moniker KG,B. KG,Bs beats are inspired by producers such as J Dilla, Madlib, and Flying Lotus, who he sees as modern the counterparts of early Jazz innovators. Since traveling to Cuba in 2012, Kazemde has expanded his focus from Hip-Hop and Jazz to the full spectrum of musical styles which blossomed from the African Diaspora, including Afro-Cuban, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Brazilian, and African-American styles. As he sees it, the study of these musical styles serves as a way to regain cultural histories that where lost through the processes of African-American Slavery. Kazemde is a biologist at heart, and his quest to understand this wide breadth of styles is driven by an analytical mind with a scientific approach. Kazemde received his bachelors degree in Neurobiology from Harvard University, but today has aligned his focus on music.
