Nominated for The Deli SF Magazine's Best New Artist of 2013

"keeping our city funky and colorful, a bright contrast beneath the machine grey cloud of the tech-age." - The Deli Magazine

Track Name: If She Knew Me
she can go, but she cant leave
shes stuck for a while bit she's leaving in style
and she can know, but she cant believe
its the books thats shes read
and the thoughts in her head
oh shes knows nobody thinks she'll ever change
oh shes knows nobody thinks she is the same girl
she never told nobody so noone knows her name
she thinks that they cant pronounce it so she's never announced it
the whole damn town says she'll amount to nothing but
if she knew me i think her whole world would change
she can walk but she cant glide
she can talk but she cant rhyme
she can dance but she cant fly
ill get my chance, ill be a guy
no man alive thinks she'll get the rhythm down
but no man ever tried to teach the little girl how but
ill be the one
she thinks her steps will bring her family shame
that the world will denounce her theyll kick her and pound her
but i can be the counsler ensure the game cause
if she knew me i think her whole world would change
i know you hear me so dont fear me
im steering you in the right direction girl
i know you see me so please believe me
the minute you impress them youll never wanna leave me girl
oh deep down you know shes dying for a change
but the town says no shell always be the same girl
she never showed nobody so no one knows she can laugh
you should hear the sound as it rushes round and then circles the town and then floats like a plane cause
if she knew me i think her whole world would change
each moment and clasp the soul til it grows and glows and then flows through her veins cause
if she knew me i think her whole world would change
Track Name: truf
i wont run unless im being chased or thrown away. i wont fight unless im feeling tried. i dont believe it when the trouble comes my way, im no trouble tugging slave to the game, no, no, i get along just fine without the seconds we gain and lose again. i get along just fine alone. the seconds are painful to keep in a hidden wooden box by the door, but if you wanna know the truth i cant take this anymore than you, but the truth, the truth, the truth has always been right in front of you. its been right in front of you, cant you see what you took advantage of youve seen but youve never looked at all the truth
Track Name: Cats & Dogs v1
you fly, you walk, you run
you thought you were the only one.
i walk too, and i fly sometimes.
man, fuck you. i never thought you were

the cheetah kind
the lion kind
the cougar kind
the tiger kind

i throw, you run, you run
you know youre not the only one
you come back, like i thought you would
ill be right back and youll sit and youll wait
youre not the:

the cheetah kind
the lion kind
the cougar kind
the tiger kind
Track Name: Dont look back
swag like me i sound fly even on the b side.
dont mind me im just trying to breathe.
no cause to speak of, inner thoughts sway:
dont look back, ive sang it twice before.
dont heed my words, youll know.
swag swag swag swag

you want it all, you got a lot, but you dont really know what you really got: fine.
you heard me right.
i know the light.
ive seen it with my own eyes.

dirt filled streets, i walk by enough.
dont fight me, im just trying to be.
no cause to speak of, inner thoughts sway:
dont look back, i sang it twice before.
dont heed my words youll know
you heard me right, i know the light
ive seen it with my own eyes
ive seen it with my own two eyes.
Track Name: Ijko
My footsteps break the ground I walk on
what am I, but a footstep?
My fingers grab the air I breathe in
what is life, but a sharp breath
Inward?
what is life, but a small step
Forward?
what is life but light breaking off
Inside my head I see things how they
outta be in spite of
What lies ahead is quite indifferent to me
but it must be adored.

You dont want to hide it from me.
