The last performer that I saw at my friend's Sofar Sounds DC show was Austin Antoine. He's Maryland born with astounding abilities spanning from singing soulful solos to conquering opposing rappers in a battle of wits. All claiming to be a creative and professionally broke.
"My goal is to progress the art-form of hip hop into something new and original for my generation."
I went to a Sofar Sounds DC show at a friends house. The first of two acts were Alexander Peters. He's a Maryland based songwriter with a conviction towards his craft. His desire to resurrect the sounds of the past have taken his music down a long dirt road with a folk story at every turn. The second was Kat Somers who proclaims to write "sad songs" and spent the last year teaching herself how to record and produce her own music.
