Cain Kerner
Cain Kerner
You would find yourself hard pressed if searching for an artist as versatile as Cain Kerner. In regard to his grateful stage presence and passion fueled delivery, it makes sense that Cain chose to pursue living for his passions and to disregard a "plan" at a young age.
A prodigy in his own right, Cain studied who he was drawn to. Thanks to the eclectic tastes of his small and "eccentric" family, Cain had a collection of any art form he was called to pursue. Whether watching movies, reading books, playing video games, or listening to music, Cain entertained himself while simultaneously absorbing knowledge and inspiration. His drinks of choice are g&t's, espolòn on the rocks, and water.

Kyte Wilson
Kyte Wilson is a Philly raised triple threat, singer/rapper/songwriter. His background in theater makes an unmatchable stage presence, guaranteed to leave you longing for more. The wit of a rapper along with his catchy vocals, Kyte's flow mix;s makes for "good vibes only." With songs from heartbreak to party jumpers and everything in between, Kyte brings it all. Destined to steal the spotlight on every stage he lands, this Philadelphia native has only just begun.
Kanegang was started back in 2012. The gang is made up of 5 members who are all from Philly. They met at Bloomsburg and developed a cult following by making hits such as Bombay, Long Strides, and their most recent Run It Up. The streets have compared the group to the Wu-Tang Clan while others have said the ASAP MOB, and even the Flatbush Zombies. Most recently fans have been quoted saying, "Kanegang is the new age State Property" No matter how you look at it or who you compare them to these fellas are leaving their fingerprints all over the Philly Music scene.
King Siah
Josiah Ridgeway, known to the world as King Siah is a Philly based emcee who embodies the word in its truest form.

It features likeminded artists Bear One (producer), Dice Raw, Sam GreenS (producer), and Philly’s own Mz. Lynx. On March 5, 2014 King Siah released his first full length LP "WELCOME TO MOUNT CRUSHMORE" produced by Rolled Gold! This album is a mix of funk, soul, reggae, and doo-wop tied together with the flair of the 90's golden-era of hip-hop. The King is building his Kingdom. Today, King Siah can be seen touring the country playing for thousands of fans as a headliner as well as opening for acts such as Truck North of The Money Making Jam Boys and Dice Raw of The Legendary Roots Crew.
