Sidewalk Chalk continues to lead the contemporary evolution of hip-hop, soul and jazz. Their roots are firmly planted in Chicago where all eight members bring their respective talents together to update a sound first heralded in the Native Tongues era, but never so musically diverse. The group’s unique arrangement allows them to incorporate numerous styles seamlessly: an MC and female vocalist; a trio of keys, bass, and drums; a horn section with trombone and trumpet; and a tap-dancer.

The band prepares to release An Orchid Is Born (Ropeadope Records), their third full-length studio album, overseen by Grammy Award-winning producer Robert “Sput” Searight. From a hyper-emotional period of loss and growth comes the album Sidewalk Chalk has truly always been trying to make -- a speeding bullet ripe with heat and rhythm that speaks to the urgency of mankind’s need to cheer in the darkest of moments and choose love over inhumanity in all things. In the band’s rebirth is an emphatic statement of purpose louder than any setback and much more infectious than their last. This vibrant collection of transformative moments is a benchmark release for Sidewalk Chalk that marks the arrival of a Midwest powerhouse and proves the Chicago sound machine is truly a phoenix rising.

Sidewalk Chalk ft. Rico Sisney (MC), Maggie Vagle (Vocals), Charlie Coffeen (Keys), Josh Rosen (Bass), Xavier Breaker (Drums), Jumaane Taylor (Taps), Sam Trump (Trumpet) and David Ben-Porat (Trombone).

In just four short years, Yonrico Scott has released as many solo albums on the jazz label Blue Canoe. His latest Life Of A Dreamer, includes some of his most adventurous originals, and features Col. Bruce Hampton on the psychedelic "Cabbage". As bandleader, he has been arranging, drumming and singing through his own compositions and standards alike. His live show has him comfortably playing all sides of those roles, breezing through music from every corner of his diverse career from Derek Trucks Band to Freddie Hubbard, Stevie Wonder, Chuck Berry and more.

Yonrico Scott & Friends ft. Yonrico Scott, drums (Derek Trucks Band), Zach Nugent, guitar (Melvin Seals & JGB), Josh Weinstein, bass (Kat Wright), Tyler Mast, keyboards (Josh Panda, Paradise Divide), Daniel Marc (The Standback).
