Louisville, KY is home to The Kentucky Derby where pedigreed race horses seek the limelight of a championship win. Where some non-recognized names have risen to the top of that field of competition, the music scene in Louisville is experiencing a similar dynamic, particularly in Hip Hop. Rob Niece is a writer and performer who has journeyed with legends and rising stars. His latest project, Soul and Hip Hop, stirs the mix of these styles into a fresh and innovative new musical experience.
The new album Soul and Hip Hop brings something new for Louisville to celebrate. Key tracks to take note of are songs with MoTown sound recalling 70s soul under a strong rap like Century, Cali Dreams and Still Love. Other songs to check out include Double Standard with its short/sweet hook that’s straight to the point, and Here For You, which you can sample on the Bandcamp page.
His latest album is set to release in August, and by pre-ordering you have the chance to also win an iPad 2. Click here for details.
