“Coming up in cypher circles and freestyle battle arenas, Tia Nomore forced her entry into hip-hop’s boys club. The 22-year-old’s claim as Oakland rap’s little sister started as a teenager when she would jump into her older brother’s rap circles and ditch class to record G-funk-inspired hyphy music. Tia’s fiery wits, lyrical dismantling and command for respect earned her studio time with HBK Gang’s Show Banga, Iamsu! and Too $hort producer Exclusive, and that combo of qualities has been the bedrock throughout her continuous transformation into a fully-realized artist.” – Nina Tabios / Rocket Radio

“If you’re tapped into the music scene in the Bay Area these days, it’s hard to miss Drew Banga. The talented OSA-bred drummer, turned bassist, turned producer has collaborated with a laundry list of the Bay’s most prominent and emerging artists. Yet, all the while he’s maintained a humble approach to music making, creating an inclusive environment for artists to hone their sound, and develop their vibe. A facilitator of sorts, even if you don’t know it, Drew’s touched or hasn’t been far away from some of your favorite Bay Area sounds from the past year ” – Max Gibson / Wine & Bowties
