"In order to really fall in love with music again, I had to fall out of love with everything I thought I loved about music... and if there's anything I want you to take away from this new music it's simply that. Sometimes before you can ever really find yourself you have to lose yourself first."
Established in 2012 as an outlet for multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Garrett Foster, Messenger Down has faced more change in it's few years than most artists see in 10. Pairing raw instrumentation and soaring melodies with electronic soundscapes and pop sensibility, this Charlotte, NC native's eclectic and ever-changing brand of Alternative music takes on an identity all it's own. His new EP, Cheating Death, is a breath of fresh air for Foster himself and music listeners alike; one you'll want to breathe in as deeply as your lungs will allow and hold until you're blue in the face.

"Music calms my soul nd releases my inner self." -IshyIsH
It all started Nov 2014 on the Greyhound leaving New Jersey on my way to Myrtle Beach for the newest chapter in my life but who would've thought music would be included in this new journey. I was on the bus when I heard a rap someone did on Facebook and I thought I could probably come up with something too so I downloaded the beat to my phone nd went into my notepad nd started writing. And soon I had something worth listening to. So once I got to my destination me nd my cousin went to the bar and met a guy who had an interest in music like us and we were invited to his house. Once there he had the studio setting in his dinning room threw a beat on we started writing and came up with Lifer Cypher and once I recorded my verse and heard it playback in those Beats headphones I knew right that this is what I was made for!
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain".
Blending a songwriting influence from a lifetime of worldwide travel and musical influences, Chris Boone creates a musical expression driven to inspire and intrigue with an eclectic blend of unique compositions, a philosophically minimalist approach, and an emphasis on a quality delivery.
Chris Boone began playing piano at the age of six in the home of his aunt and uncle, tucked away deep in the woods of Ware Shoals, SC. Chris Boone and his family moved to Belgium, and then France, this move in the 1970’s helped shape him into the artist he is today; Late nights in social settings with music from the jukebox and the occasional piano in the corner begging to be played imprinted an irresistible passion for music.
Upon returning to the U.S., Chris studied piano under the tutelage of Peter Plum, he also was admitted to the piano program at Converse Pre-College, but time and age influenced him to move from classical piano to the synthesizer and electronic keyboard, playing with local bands in the upstate region of South Carolina.
After his South Carolina days, Chris Boone moved to New York, NY and performed as the front man for the punk band The Subvertables. After a short studio demo, the band broke up, and Chris moved to LA. Shaped by influences of Bob Dylan, Paul Westerberg, Bob Mould, Vic Chestnut, and Paul Weller, he began to alter his musical interest to singer/songwriter with the guitar as his primary instrument.
Upon returning to NYC, Chris Boone recorded his first ten-song EP, Trailer Park Friendly, and found himself billed as the opener for Jewel at the Ludlow Street Cafe for an Atlantic Records showcase. Quick to move around, Chris Boone headed to San Francisco, CA for a short stint of music collaboration with local artists. Upon return to South Carolina in 1997, he headed bands such as Teahead Joyride and The Drive, while at the same time playing coffee shops simply as ‘boone’.
In 2004, Chris Boone returned to Charleston, SC and met Phil White, a music graduate of the College of Charleston and co-founder of the New Music Collective who recorded and produced his second EP, Partly Monday … in 2005. In 2007, Phil White again recorded and produced Chris Boone’s second album, Cabin Fever. In 2006 Chris and his family moved to Portland, OR, where, in 2009, Frank Alva produced and recorded his third album Once From Memory. In 2010 Chris Boone and Jon Lumus completed a full length album ‘Push’ under the project name of ‘Great Migration’ which was recorded at Type Foundry studios in Portland, OR.
2014 ‘Whiskey Truth & Lies’ was recorded and mastered at Awendaw Green by Nat Lundy. After two and half years of playing mostly local and occasionally regional shows Chris Boone recorded ‘Capture My Apathy’ at Fairweather Studio in Charleston, SC. The amazing people who were dedicated to Chris Boone’s album ‘Capture My Apathy’ are: Ben Thomas (guitar/organ/vocals), Jonathan Gray (Upright Bass), Omar Colon (Drums, Percussion, Backing Vocals, Engineer, Website Savior.

I'm a multi talented artist who goes by Jaron aka JPhanom. 28 years young born & raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Been doing composing music since I was 17. I got interested in music when I was about 16 or 17. One night me & the homies were kicking it in our hood & my bro Doc started rapping on me. I never battled before but I gave it a shot. I must've said some incredible stuff cause the homies went crazy lol. After that I fell in love with the craft. I don't compose only rap. I do r&b also. I'm interested in expanding & doing other genres too. Never know what your capable of till you try. I get a few ideas for songs from my 2 kids Ja'Ryon (12) & Jakayla (10). They really be on another level. They keep me on my toes with criticism. I'm a cool guy just wannabe heard. The money & fame is ok but when you have genuine fans that love your music means more to me. Check out my tunes in ya spare time & thanks for reading.

Born Webster Maurice Thompson on March 17 in Seneca, South Carolina...the Oconee County native has 27 years of rapping/songwriting expierience & 14 years of production expierience. Working with unsigned & major acts throughout the South & across the country, Hillbilly Moe has more material than many major acts but only lacked at recorded material, videos & shows but would make up for it by leaving those close to or around him with an unforgettable 16 bars no matter where he goes. In his high school days at Seneca High School in Seneca, South Carolina, he would often attract large crowds due to rapping in the hallways, city & county events in & out of state & was the "go to" guy in his hometown when other acts came through from other areas or out of state looking to battle, promote, collaborate or just explore hip hop in undiscovered areas. Hillbilly Moe also enjoys production in which he produces about three-fourths of the time he invests in his writing/recording but he can write a song within 30 minutes to an hour, timing is a natural for Hillbilly Moe who tends to be a perfectionist who doesn't take forever when it comes to music. "Delivery can make you or break you" says Hillbilly Moe. Music has pretty much boiled down to "if your lyrics are tight or you're talking about something everyone wants to hear....as long as the beat is tight...people only care about HOW you say certain things." I appreciate anyone with a desire for music or a story to tell!
