Sam Lachow is a producer, songwriter, rapper, videographer, director, and editor of video and music. Raised in both Seattle and New York City he's been making videos since elementary school, and as a seventh-grader began a group called Shankbone. Sam began directing and producing music videos with Shankbone, and went on to create videos for various other artists.
In 2011 Sam released his debut project as a solo artist, "Brand New Bike". Produced entirely by Sam, the album utilized many live instruments from musicians based in Seattle and New York. The next year Sam released 2 EP's, and produced/directed dozens of music videos from the projects on his YouTube channel, which now has over 7 million views.
After successfully raising 20K on Kickstarter in 2014, Sam’s second full length album Huckleberry independently debuted #6 on iTunes Hip Hop. He then unexpectedly released a free project titled 80 Bars, which surpassed a million plays on Soundcloud for multiple songs. Riding that momentum Sam became the first local headliner to sell out Seattle’s 1,000 cap Neptune Theater, co-headlined a 29 city national tour, and rocked the main stage at Washington's biggest music festival Sasquatch. Sam’s latest EP Friends, Funk & Liquor debuted at #2 on iTunes Hip Hop top albums.
Ariana DeBoo is a Seattle-based vocalist and songwriter who blends contemporary pop sensibility with jazz and hip-hop style. Featured on Macklemore's "Drug Dealer" single in October 2016, Ariana followed up with a debut solo release titled "My Love 4 U" on Valentines Day 2017.
Romaro Franceswa is a musician who uses hip-hop to deliver street gospels. Raised in between church and trap houses, Franceswa’s style of rapping is brash and aggressive one minute but also humble and rooted in reality.
A product of Federal Way, WA and blessed with the gift of gab from a young age, he started his musical journey around 9-years-old. Growing up as the younger cousin of Seattle rapper Fatal Lucciauno, Franceswa was routinely exposed to live shows and he earned a strong reputation freestyling backstage amongst many of the city’s elite artists. A chance encounter rapping in front of Fierce Vill of Dyme Def led to an introduction and deep bond forming with the powerhouse Seattle hip-hop producer Bean One (Yuk The World) who’s solely produced all of Franceswa’s music projects to date.
In 2015 Franceswa participated in Seattle Theatre Group’s More Music @ The Moore program and was mentored directly by legendary drummer Sheila E. To date he’s opened for national touring artists such as Rakim, Vince Staples, Jacquees, Vic Mensa and toured nationally with Grieves of Rhymesayers. Franceswa’s 2015 debut album Balance, helped thrust the young MC in front of bigger audiences and landed him on the cover of City Arts Magazine in 2016. Balance is laced in songs that reek of authenticity. Eschewing cliché raps, Franceswa can spit verses about all aspects of the streets while steadily encouraging listeners to find a better way to live. Balance isn’t just an album title it’s a way of life.
In 2016, Franceswa is prepping for a new project to be released under the Black Umbrella imprint. A collection of 9 songs entitled ”Mirrors” featuring production by BeanOne, Warm Gun, Red Nephew, Nima Skeems, Antwon Vinson and Elan Wright with appearances by Ariana DeBoo, Ryan Caraveo and Paris Williams.
