From Audible Treats:
As the release of TRUTHLiVE's free EP, The UnLearning approaches, the Cali-based MC/DJ/Producer is letting loose the fifth and final leak before the EP's release next week, and giving one final introduction by releasing the EP's title track, "The UnLearning." Featuring production by Vitamin D, who has worked with artists including 50 Cent and Redman, "The UnLearning," which also serves as the EP's lead track, bears a personal feeling, as TRUTHLiVE introduces himself to the world. Starting off with rhythmic and heavy drumbeats, a rolling bass line, and triumphant horns, TRUTHLiVE's voice soon takes command of the beat, as he raps about his dedication to the art form he loves. "It's my passion, no way that I can mask it/ My heart in every line, every track, every facet," raps the emcee, reinforcing the authenticity that he layers into every one of his songs. Recording the song in one take, what you see is what you get, and TRUTHLiVE was so happy with the natural feeling of the way the vocals came out, he decided to keep things just how they were. "I made some mistakes delivering with the lyrics compared to how they were written, but when I heard the playback, I actually liked the mistakes," explains TRUTHLiVE. "It has the feeling of a sincere, almost desperate plea."
TRUTHLiVE's The UnLearning EP will be available for free download next week, while his full-length album, Patience, produced entirely by Jake One, will be available April 20, 2010 via Interdependent Media.

Evan "TRUTHLiVE" Phillips, owner and founder of Interdependent Media, has certainly made his mark in the music industry with his wide range of talents. As an emcee, DJ, entrepreneur, and artist, TRUTHLiVE has had his hands in everything from a very young age. After a traumatic adolescent period where his health was at risk, three heart surgeries proved the artist to be quite a fighter. He explains to his new listeners, "The name TRUTHLiVE doesn't mean that I'm proclaiming myself as the truth, end-all be-all; it's more of a reminder to myself on how to conduct my life and career." The MC best summates, "My music is my truth and my life." That meaningful music will arrive on April 20th in the form of Patience, TRUTHLiVE's debut release, courtesy of Bay Area label Interdependent Media.
