Hailing from Houston’s Third Ward, Fat Tony (born Anthony Lawson Jude Ifeanyichukwu Obiawunaotu) is a Nigerian-American rapper who has played an integral role in shaping the Houston rap scene. Heavily influenced by renowned local rappers like Lil’ Flip, Fat Tony began making music and playing live shows in 2004, a time when there wasn’t much of a scene for young artists in Houston. In 2010, Fat Tony released his innovative debut full-length project RABDARGAB, produced by Tom Cruz. The album paved the way for a new Houston sound, bringing to the forefront the unique perspective of a Nigerian-American Houston-native, along with sonically dense and dynamic production. Fat Tony’s second studio album Smart Ass Black Boy, released in 2013 on Young One Records, was well-received by critics for its warm, laid-back vibe. With standout tracks like “BKNY,” and “Hood Party." Fat Tony won awards in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2013 for Best Underground Hip Hop at the Houston Press Music Awards, and has worked on groundbreaking collaborations with the likes of Das Racist and A$AP Rocky.
Hevln (Pronounced "heaven") is the producer alias of interdisciplinary artist Lucas Gorham. Hevln live performances aim to create an audio/visual experience that bridges electronic r&b and pop music with video art.

D. Wing
Singer/Songwriter D.Wing's passion for R&B began early in his life. Obsession with 90's artists Tevin Campbell, Immature, Zhane and Shai dispatched the young singer onto a quest from which he couldn't yield. From his parents stereo, he also absorbed the mysterious & vulnerable ballads of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. As these musical cultures collided, he found his voice. Raised by his harpist mother and scientist father in both the US and abroad, D.Wing's vagabond ethos echoes throughout his work. With courageous sincerity and a willingness to freely bare raw human emotion (and possibly alien), his distinctive qualities make him a singular artist. D.Wing's work reminds us why a genre like R&B is the perfect vehicle to connect to our most intimate selves.
