Abstract – That Rapper

He’s a two time winner of Charleston City Paper’s Best Hip Hop act in 2017 and 2018. You can find him at nearly every hip hop show in town where you can witness his commanding stage presence. He released his first album back in February, Mosaic, that highlights the range of his talent.

Julian Harrell better known as Abstract – That Rapper is one of the most humble, appreciative, and grateful humans I’ve ever interviewed. The interview touches on how Harrell’s perfectionism held him back from releasing music, Charleston’s hip hop community, and his music video for “Wu Would Never Die”.

Listen, share, and enjoy friends.

Lindsay Holler

She’s a fixture in the Charleston music scene as a singer and guitarist. She’s a solo act as well as a leader in three other bands: Matadero, Lindsay Holler’s Western Polaroids, Lindsay Holler and The Hollerettes. Her most recent project the Women & Series at the Charleston Music Hall celebrates popular musicians while highlighting local talent.

This is Lindsay Holler…

Women & Willie is THIS Saturday night at Charleston Music Hall at 8 pm. You will get a chance to see a variety of local musicians for just $17.00. This production has been going strong for several years and growing to be one of the most popular events at the Music Hall (in my opinion).

Emily Curtis

“No one wants to get to the top by themselves.”

In this episode, I chat with local singer/songwriter, Emily Curtis, on the scarcity mindset that occurs amongst the music community. The idea is that musicians are afraid to promote and help other musicians for fear that there isn’t enough room for both acts. Besides discussing our music scene, we dive into the background of her latest single, “Ghost Stories” and how finding a mentor can make all the difference navigating the music industry. Listen to the full conversation below.
