SOUTHPAW PLAYERS

Avant EP

2009-05-11

The Southpaw Players' debut album, Avant EP, is a refreshing combination of hip-hop, R&B, and funk. Rooted in tradition hip-hop, The Southpaw Players use live instruments rather than loops and synths. Their socially conscious lyrics analyze blue-collar life, incorporating humor and wry perception. Made up of keyboardist Ryan Wilson, guitarist Michael Sullivan, lyricist Rick Chyme, drummer Jacob Schaub, and bassist Coe Lacy, The Southpaw Players are adding a new flavor to the Grand Rapids music scene.
