mraitzykmusic This album speaks to the truth of my city. it's got soul, chops, poetry and a bad-ass guitarist! I love it. And Kris Funn's dad made me laugh when we played music together...back in the day!

Michael Grover I heard Kris and his band some time ago on NPR's "Jazz Night in America," and I've been eagerly awaiting this album ever since. It was worth the wait. These guys have amazing chops, but more importantly, there's a serious groove running through this record. It's complex, thoughtful music that's also really easy to listen to - the eleven songs just fly by. Highly recommended! Favorite track: Ghettobird.

The portrait of an artist as a young man. The story of a kid growing up in the 80's in West Baltimore set to the backdrop of sibling rivalry, a father's passion for music, a mother's guidance and a quest for finding oneself. Life lessons meeting at the intersection of blues, rock, bebop and hip hop. See you at the Cornerstore.
