The Kenyan born and now Seattle based artist has received wide spread recognition being featured on NPR. In "Beautifully Human", Wachira highlights issues of human equality, especially when it undermines the divine sacredness of those who are different. Her sophmore album "Songs of Lament" she describes, ‘was born out the many tragic losses we’ve witnessed globally."
On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
