7 days ago
The Working Artist Project's Artist Spotlight is a new series where I talk to creatives about new and exciting creations! Today I have Nickel Five on the show and we listened to and discussed a number of tracks from his new CD entitled Resuscitation Music. Nickel is a New York-based M.C. that merges hip-hop and jazz in a unique way. He describes it as truth that you can dance to, I don't know about you but that sounds like something I want to be a part of. I have a feeling you guys are going to enjoy listing to this Episode of The Working Artist Project Spotlight series.
