Migrate Music Exclusive – Balance and the Traveling Sounds – Won’t Do (J Dilla)

How about we switch gears here for a moment. I know we post up a lot of rock, indie, and hip hop, but we also want to start branching out and covering more genres. (See the ABOUT MIGRATE MUSIC NEWS tab at the top).

Let us introduce to you Balance and the Traveling Sounds.

BTS combines  a variety of musical tastes, cultural backgrounds, eclectic grooves and lush harmonies to create an innovative, captivating and addicting sound accessible by any music enthusiast. This powerhouse of soul, funk, jazz and hip-hop-inspired grooves is composed of seven diverse musicians from a variety of metropolises up and down the Golden Coast (Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego). Comprised of producer EBO, MC KIRB, vocalist Mike Eddie, drummer Julian Hogan, saxophonist Jeff Kolhede, guitarist Ryan Kern, and bass guitarist Scott Fulton. Embodying old-school class with a hip-hop edge, Balance and the Traveling Sounds melds the raw honesty of live instrumentation and introspective lyrics with hip-hop sampling and imaginative beats. They add a modern twist to the musical acts that came before and inspired their musical progress, making them a group of tireless artists with an unparalleled level of devotion to the art form.
