Transcendent of time and space, The Styletones are what could of been, what should be today, and what you need to see. This hard soul sensation will provide the soundtrack for the best night of your life without regard to curfew, sex laws, or justice for your guilty pleasures. Goes well with: Sly and the Family Stone, The Meters, and your favorite rare soul/funk compilations. Features ex-members of (or touring musicians with): Pocket, Jason Mraz, Karl Denson, Big Daddy Kane, The Price of Dope, and Bad Credit.
Singer, song-juggler, and self-proclaimed "Original Gangster of Cleveland," Bushwalla represents the assorted talents of Billy Galewood. Bushwalla began performing in musical theater at the early age of nine. At 18 he was studying theater at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in New York City, supporting himself as a street performer by incorporating such feats as juggling, magic, face-balancing, and fire-breathing. Today, Bushwalla's sound has evolved into a unique blend of acoustic hip-hop, folk, and funk with a soul deeply rooted in authenticity and optimism.
