An Hobbes
Tyler Kreigler works a day job as a super hero in the city of Cubicle Hell. Armed with a degree in Philosophy he spends his day doing absolutely nothing related to his field of study. However, by night (and some evenings) he becomes An Hobbes- emcee extraordinaire, cosmonaut, philosopher and all around nerdy everyman who makes love to your ears with his quick lipped rhymes. Hobbes cracked the music matrix over 10 years ago as part of the Lincoln, NE group The Awkwords with fellow emcee Toad the Newsense, DJ Trinidad and Andrew Eckerson. With The Awkwords, Hobbes was fortunate enough to perform with artists such as Del the Funky Homosapien, Aceyalone, Josh Martines, Awol One, 2Mex, MC Frontalot, Eyedea and Abilities, Blueprint and more. Hobbes has also toured with Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox and Sadistik, both inside and outside of the United States. In 2007 The Awkwords released their debut album "Left Speaker... Right Speaker...". The Awkwords are happy to announce their follow up album "Colorful Language" will be released fall of 2012. Somewhere along the way Hobbes met the love of his life, his wife, Anastasia. They enjoy spending their time reenacting scenes from the book, "50 Shades of Grey", because after one child they prefer her eggs to be scrambled and not fertilized. Their daughter, Nova Rhyme, is being raised as a geek prodigy. She can already identify more comic book characters, rappers and constellations at the tender age of two than the average seven year old. Hobbes moved from Lincoln, NE to Denver, CO in April of 2011 to level up his powers in the city of Cubicle Hell and to expand his music career. "Diaries of a Space Cadet" is his first solo release which chronicles the adventures and romance of an Earthing who unexpectedly finds himself in the far reaches of space and, by no real action of his own, becomes captain of a space vessel. The album features production by K. Murdock, Count Bass D, Sassoon, Whatshisface, Sam Morris, Merchant of Death, and Andrew Eckerson. Guest emcees include Toad the Newsense (of the Awkwords), Barlow, and Robin Samples.
Felix Fast4ward
Felix Ayodele aka FelixFast4wrd Born in Evanston, Illinois March 12th 1982. Moving to Houston,Tx in the early 90's the young Illinois native began to displayed an interest in art and music, after seeing The "DMC U.S. Finals of 1998" on vhs. He began putting together "Battle routines" he developed and competed using his idiosyncratic prowess with vinyl scratching and compostition. Along with handed down records from his parents (who both Immigrated to the U.S. from Nigerian) he was provided with a wealth of music education, these records would be injected interestingly into his creation process. The records/and people that were around him would influence the traditional musician within, from prog-rock records including Yes,King Crimson,Camel to Afrobeat Music, Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti down to Jazz Hero's from Sun-Ra to Ornette Coleman,all serendipitously creating a recipe for the modern producer/musician.

Enter FelixFast4wrd: Turntablist/Multi-Instrumentalist/Vocalist. Along side intense turntable technique and musical intuition coupled with juxtaposing obscure records that seemingly do not fit together Fast4ward creates lush & soulfully Imaginative improvised compositions. Using a Looper and various other instruments ie. flute,guitar,harmonica,melodica,and keyboards, and topping it off with his voice (both singing and rapping) Fast4wrd reinvents the "One-Man Band" format and creates a whole new framework allowing the audience to get to influence & see his music being created piece by piece. With a quirky and unique blend of avant-pop sensibilities and a wildly vivid musical pallet to draw from, FelixFast4ward delivers to you a rare breed of contemporary artistry and musicianship.
