LOONY w/ The Fresh Kils Trio

Date: 
Thu Jun 27 5:30pm
Ticket Price: 
Free Admission

Hailing from the suburb of Scarborough, Loony brings the experience of growing up in a diverse, multicultural area to bear, with a sound inspired by a range of musical genres.

A love for neo-soul, by way of Erykah Badu, is clearly present, as is an appreciation for hip-hop, pop and rock sounds. After taking a short break — her last effort was 2016's self-titled EP — Part 1 hits the ground running with the rap-sing groove of "Flock," which shouts out her stomping ground backed by a brassy groove. "Overnight" carries a stripped-down electronic organ approach, highlighted by a confident Loony speaking to the promise of alternate realities, possibilities and outcomes. "Earth Sway" bounces on a trappy, jazzy, bluesy beat — "I ain't got my name for nothin'," she maintains as she admonishes a wayward lover.

From behind the boards to the stage, there’s not a spot of ground Fresh Kils’ prolific career hasn’t touched. And not just hip hop. It’s true, you’ll see Saigon and Ali Shaheed (ATCQ) grace his resume, but you’ll also find the likes of Ron Sexsmith & The Buena Vista Social Club. His prowess on the MPC has seen him share the stage with many of hip hop’s legends (Nas, De La Soul) as well as the best of the underground. With momentum & accolades growing each year, Fresh Kils’ is poised for a sound system takeover unlike any we’ve seen in a long time. You’ve been warned…
