Sidewalk Chalk (Chi) // Mourning [A] Bl Kstar // Muamin Collective says
Sidewalk Chalk continues to lead the contemporary evolution of hip-hop, soul, and jazz. The band's third album, Shoulder Season, is compiled from seven live performances across the US. Its title signifies transition, a time in between two places, a feeling of expectation for what is to come. Sidewalk Chalk's roots are firmly planted in Chicago where all eight members bring their respective talents together to update a sound first heralded in the Native Tongues era but never so musically diverse. The group's unique arrangement allows them to incorporate numerous styles seamlessly: an MC and female vocalist; a trio of keys, bass, and drums; a horn section with trombone and trumpet; and a tap-dancer.

The group has shared stages with ?uestlove, De La Soul, Action Bronson, Jean Grae, Hiatus Kaiyote and other notables. Individually, band members have acted as musical director(s) for Brother Ali, toured with Jazzanova and played behind Buddy Guy and Talib Kweli. Sidewalk Chalk was named "Most Outstanding Group" at the 2012 Chicago Music Awards, and its MC represented Chicago at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China.

Formed in 2015 by RA Washington, M[A]B looks to forage new pathways toward heart music by melding soul, blues, electronics, avant-poetics w/ futurist beats.
