We first heard of Myron & E with the Soul Investigators a few years back when they released a string of excellent funk 45s on the Timmion label. They signed with Stones Throw last year, and we're proud to announce their debut album Broadway will be released July 2, 2013.
Both from the Bay Area, Myron & E (Myron Glasper and Eric "E da Boss" Cooke) met while on tour with Blackalicious. Cooke was the tour DJ, Glasper sang backup.
While on another tour through Finland, Cooke found himself in an impromptu jam session with members of The Soul Investigators, whose work with singer Nicole Willis helped define them as one of Europe's foremost retro-soul bands. Investigators producer Didier Selin was impressed enough to leave Cooke with several unfinished tracks. Back in the Bay Area, Cooke recruited Glasper as a songwriting/vocal team, and the collaboration was begun.
In the past year, the team focused on building its live show and perfecting its debut album. "If I Gave You My Love" is the first track to be released from the latest sessions. Another preview of the album Broadway will follow later this month.
Here is the Long awaited mixtape by P.G County Rapper Fru (fellow rebellious underdog) which is hosted by DJ Superstar Jay and also features the singles "Nobody Gon' Change Me",
"Rico" and "Flyin' high".
