Black Phoenix Artist Society on Fox-Crow Variety Show Feb 11

Posted on in Fox-Crow Variety Show, WRUW

This past week I had the great pleasure of welcoming three members of Cleveland-based ten-piece collaborative, the Black Phoenix Artist Society. Josiah “Jo Melody” Britt, Shakka Hasberry, and Lonnie Reid on guitar coalesced in our Studio C to share their vision for musical and community engagement.

Shakka graced the airwaves with his euphonic vocals, accompanied by Jo Melody’s sublime lyricism and wordsmithing,┬áperforming live both to several of the┬áSociety’s grooving hip-hop instrumental tracks and to Lonnie’s gently-weeping, soulful strings.

You can find out more about the group on Facebook in the Black Phoenix Artist Society group page

Listen and download the archive before Saturday 4-6pm, when we will have Low Cut Connie on for an interview.
