Kayo is a Chicago based rapper and singer who's shown glimpses of superstardom since releasing his first single 'Memories' last year. After going viral multiple times from freestyles that he uploaded out of his home studio (more like his grandma's basement), he garnered the attention of the underground rap scene, so much so that he sold out a venue for the listening party of his album that had yet to be released. But Kayo has dreams far beyond being underground. With his highly anticipated album, It Was Fun While It Lasted, featuring the likes of Paris Price, Senite, femdot., Ausar, Stoic, Pilotkid, and many others, Kayo is looking to be one of the rising stars of this era. And from his hard hitting lyricism, infectious vocal arrangements, and R&B-esque melodies, as heard in Make It Real, he is proving to be just that.
Sydny August is an R&B singer/songwriter from the northside of Chicago who doesn't limit her artistry. Toward the end of Sydny’s junior year of high school, she emerged on the Chicago music scene performing by gaining recognition from original singles like "Over," and "Let You Know," found on Soundcloud. The songs became recognized as “HotRod,” a Power92 Chicago radio personality, invited Sydny to the station early 2017 being one of her first live interviews. After the release of August’s freshman EP “6th Floor” in late October, 2017, Lyrical Lemonade, a Chicago street blog, picked up Sydny’s sound “boast(ing) one of the best upcoming voices in the city” (Montanez 2017). Lyrical Lemonade features Sydny’s new music and video releases as “6th Floor” made 41 on LL’s ‘Top 50 Chicago Projects of 2017’.
August has made a great effort throughout 2017 to 2020 by releasing five EPs -- “6th Floor,” “August Project,” “uni,” “45,” and "NeverMore," -- while maintaining Creative Writing & Business studies at the University of Kansas. August remains prolific by releasing her independent debut album "Miss August," during 2020's quarantine before signing to Chicago's #1 label Only The Family. Appearing on Lil Durk's 2021 "The Voice (Deluxe)" album, August sets the tone on "Love You." In July 2021 August released her first single as a signed artist, "How Does It Feel," and is constantly evolving through her artistic discography. She continues to perform and record; by transforming relatable emotions sonically, Miss August reminds us to live and lead through love.
