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." Raised in Queens NY. Academic stints in New Hampshire, Philadelphia, London and Long Island. One semester short on two different graduate degrees. A couple of years of NYC Public School teaching thrown in there in between. 9th and 10th grades. Some bartending too, at the legendary Lennox Lounge in Harlem. That's where Shaft used to drink. December 2006 he decides to cut all that miscellaneous nonsense and follow his passion. His first album came the following year.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." He writes regularly for The Huffington Post, some for Gawker. While most of his writing is music, it appears he'll write wherever a lot of people are looking. If he had an opportunity to give a speech at a huge rally he'd take that too, so more than anything else he just wants to spread the word. Maybe he just wants attention. Attention for being himself though.

Trapdoor Social: After meeting in an Environmental Analysis program at Pomona College, Trapdoor Social’s Merritt Graves and Skylar Funk bonded over a deep concern for the future of the planet. The two writers bring very different styles to the studio, and what results is a driving, emotive alt-pop experience.The duo introduced themselves with the “Death Of A Friend” EP, released in December 2012. Produced by Curt Schneider, it features Death Cab For Cutie’s Jason McGerr on drums. They will donate 100% of proceeds from their forthcoming full-length album to solar energy projects in Los Angeles, in collaboration with Homeboy Industries, a local non-profit that re-trains former gang members for jobs in the economies of the future. Their point is clear – climate change is an urgent matter, and music must be one way to build support for solutions. Earlier this year, Trapdoor Social’s “Like You Never” was the #1 listener requested track on KROQ’s “Locals Only” show, and they have since enjoyed radio play from a number of major market stations around the US, including regular rotation on Q87.7 in Chicago.
