BADBADBADNOTGOOD is the talented young quartet of Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, Alex Sowinski on drums & Leland Whitty on saxophone. They formed and became inseparable friends at Humber College's Music Performance program in 2011 and have been on a critically acclaimed, rule bending musical journey ever since. BBNG took the music world by storm with their 2014 LP, III, a brash yet refined record of angular jazz improvisations, lush ballads, kraut rock, & futuristic hip-hop tinged rhythms which led to a couple years of touring the world & collaborating with some of the best and brightest artists around the globe.

The boys are back with the new album IV, their most impressive and highly anticipated project yet. IV continues their forward thinking progression, sounding something like a jam session in space between Can, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock's Headhunters, Weather Report, Arthur Russell & MF DOOM.

With tracks like "Time Moves Slow" featuring haunting vocals from Sam Herring of Future Islands, the syncopated groove of "Lavender," a collaboration with Montreal based producer Kaytranada, the rumbling fusion build of "Confessions Pt. II" featuring Colin Stetson on the bass sax, "Love" which is highlighted with smokey left field raps from Mick Jenkins & the epic chords of "Speaking Gently," IV is an exploration in post-genre virtuosity. Out Summer 2016 on Innovative Leisure Records, BBNG prove yet again that the possibilities & discovery in their musical quest are infinite.

Ace Cosgrove
Maryland-based hip hop artist, Ace Cosgrove, has made a
glowing name for himself. Ace began his journey with the
release of his debut ep, Simple Criticism in 2014. Showing no
signs of letting up, Ace dropped Us Vs. Robots later that year.
Not only did this garner the attention of some of the biggest
names in the hip hop community, but also the entertainment
industry, including admiration from Peter Rosenberg (Hot 97),
who approved Ace as one of the up-and-coming fresh new
sounds in music.
Ace followed up the 2014 releases with his 9-track EP, Baby
Need Feed. In June 2017, Ace released his strongest body of
work, Ms.Claire's Basement. This got the attention of
IndieShuffle who said the track, “My Fault”, “[sounded] better
than at least 75% of what [they] hear on the radio, at the bar,
on the jukebox, wherever”.
Ace’s music has been met along the way with critical acclaim
from outlets including Complex, XXL, BET's 106 & Park,
NahRight, HipHop Dx, DJ Booth, GoodMusicAllDay and VIBE.
The Ace Cosgrove live show features his full band, BobMoeKill,
and has seen him take the stage across the world including Hot
97’s Who’s Next in New York, Sound Splash festival in New
Zealand and Landmark Music & Arts festival in DC.
