Watsky
Watsky
A successful slam poet turned rapper, Watsky first gained attention through ‘Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Poetry’, and a later burst of viral success for his fast rapping. At every turn, Watsky has refused to be pigeonholed, following up his speed rap success with 2013 LP Cardboard Castles, an eccentric ode to creativity, and 2014’s Anderson. Paak-produced All You Can Do. After a hiatus to work on new material, Watsky pivots again, this time to prose, returning simultaneously with the essay collection How To Ruin Everything, published by Plume/Penguin-Random House, of which Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda writes, “funny, subversive […] you find yourself nodding your head in wonder and recognition.” How To Ruin Everything debuted in the New York Times best selling list. In total, he has created 4 studio albums and two live albums. Watsky released his fifth album, ‘x Infinity,’ August 2016, describing it as his most ambitious project yet.
Chukwudi Hodge
Chukwudi Hodge was born in Oakland CA, into the rich bay area culture of West African music. After beginning playing djembe at age two he toured with the West African Children’s Dance Theater, and trained with greats such as Mosheh Milon, Riche Faye, and Mamady Keita. While continuing to have a heavy commitment to traditional music, Chukwudi added drumset to his repertoire at age ten. Chukwudi honed his skill through the years, and landed his first band membership in 2006 with the GetBack at eighteen. He was accepted to the Berklee College of Music in the Fall of 2008, and attended full time for two years while still remaining very active with the GetBack. He is the current drummer for lyricist George Watsky, and has played and learned with musicians such as John Blackwell, Youssou N’dour, Terri Lynn Carrington, and many more amazing drummers, musicians, and artists. Chukwudi was the director of music curriculum at Nea Community Learning Center from 2010-2013, when he moved to Los Angeles to tour full time.
