The Urban Renewal Project is a Los Angeles-based band that uses instruments of a bygone era to create a signature sound that blurs the boundaries between soul, jazz, and hip hop. The group features a big band horn section, a singer, and a rapper who perform upbeat originals, as well as fresh interpretations of jazz standards to recent hits. They've toured nationally from New York's Rockwood Music Hall to the San Jose Jazz Summerfest, and their recordings have received airplay on tastemaking radio stations across the country, including KCRW–Santa Monica and WDCB–Chicago.
Brandishing an instantly recognizable voice and style, as well as an acute ear in the studio, thePOET writes, sings, raps, produces, and engineers songs with emotional, intellectual, and spiritual content that leave an enduring impression on the listener.
TenPints Entertainment presents an eclectic mix of indie, rock, hip-hop, folk, and world music.
