Kweku Collins
Kweku Collins
Kweku Collins is a 20-year-old rapper/producer/songwriter from Evanston, IL that has been making music for most of his life. Born into a musical family, Kweku joined his dad on-stage playing African drums as early as the age of 4. As a teenager, Kweku transitioned to making his own music, crafting bedroom classics throughout high school. In 2015, just shy of his high school graduation, Kweku joined the Chicago's indie rap outfit Closed Sessions, and shortly after released his debut EP, Say It Here While It's Safe. The EP received critical praise and landed Kweku on Pigeons and Planes "20 Rappers Under 20" list. In 2016, Kweku followed up with Nat Love -- a proper LP that garnered an 8.0 Pitchfork review, produced a Pitchfork Best New Track, and landed Kweku in publications such as The FADER, Billboard, Chicago Reader, and more. Kweku's latest release, Grey, is available now via iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, and other digital retailers.

Dani Bell and The Tarantist
There's a driving haunt at the center of Dark West, antique reverbs ripple out around the edges of vocals. A scene is painted, escape, loss and longing for something more. The light at the end of the tunnel is not quite as important as the tunnel itself. This music is the journey through. Dani Bell sighs over every genre, tip toeing through the spooky diner blues of Crave, raising the dynamic for the soulful Motown strut of Nightfall and whispering mournful melodies over ethereally jarring atmosphere of Hired Hands. She composed the parts herself, playing bass, keys and guitar, but they were perfected in studio by a stellar cast of musicians that make up The Redwoods Music Collective. Cinematic in scope, eclectic in sound and focused in vision.
