Jonathan Coulton is from the Internet. While a struggling music industry fell to pieces over file sharing and shifting business models, he quietly and independently amassed a small army of techies, nerds, and dedicated superfans. Featured in the New York Times, NPR and slashdot, his songs cover an eclectic range of subjects, from zombies and mad scientists to marriage and parenthood. In concert he moves fluidly between pathos and ridiculous fun. Seeing your first Coulton show is like walking into an insider club meeting, but one that gleefully welcomes and indoctrinates you in short order. Oh, and he plays a mean ukulele.

Jean Grae is a polymath in every sense of the word. She grew up in New York City, first coming to America with her family when she was just three months old, amid racial turmoil in their home country. She attended the famed LaGuardia performing arts high school and studied music business at NYU before committing to music full-time. The album is the product of someone trained in the art of lyrical supremacy, beaten down by leaks and shady record execs only to emerge stronger and wiser for a second act even more impressive than the first.
She rose to prominence in the underground hip hop scene in New York City and has since built an international fanbase. She is known as an important figure in hip hop and popular culture. Her unique music style, gritty rhymes, and lyrical mastery have earned her recognition as a favorite emcee by many rap artists such as Talib Kweli, Jay-Z , and Black Thought of the Roots. She studied Vocal Performance at Fiorello H. She dropped out after three weeks of class.
