Sam Trump

A multi-instrumentalist/recording artist/producer from Houston, TX, Sam has been a student of music from first picking up the trumpet at age 7. Since moving to Chicago in 2009 to obtain his fine arts degree in music, he has become heavily involved in Chicago's live music scene, and is widely known as a band leader, sideman, mentor, and music curator. Wherever he is, Sam Trump is known for creating a vibe that is sophisticated and soulful.

Sam Trump’s debut album, Purple Skies (January 2018) documents the early maturation of his solo artistry, covering topics of love and romance, family, inspiration, societal interdependence, and the Black American plight. All songs are produced by his long-term collaborator and LA based producer, Calvin Valentine, who also produced his previous release, Love Notes (February 2017). Sam Trump released his first self-produced EP, Sam Trump Plays the Uke (June 2013), which showcased new songs that were written and composed on the ukulele.

In addition to his solo work, Sam Trump is a co-founder of ChiBrations, a social platform that highlights Soul singers in Chicago, and was deemed a "Renaissance Musician" by The Chicago Tribune in 2016. He is also an original member of long-standing hip-hop/soul/jazz band Sidewalk Chalk, in which he plays trumpet.

Harold Green

Primarily a poet, Harold Green is an ever-evolving artist with a skill set that defies categorization. His vibrant storytelling and passionate lyrical delivery continue to captivate audiences both domestically and internationally.

Aggressively working to move the genre forward, each show that Green curates is a one-of-a-kind, full-sensory, multi-disciplinary experience drawing guests from all sides of the city and country, breaking down barriers and pushing far beyond the limitations of the traditional “coffee-house spoken word” blueprint.

In the media, Green has been talked about in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, The Ellen DeGeneres Show Blog, Ebony Web, Black America Web (Tom Joyner/Reach Media), Windy City Live, and Black Enterprise Web.


Founded by Bobhartley Etienne in 2011, this collective of musicians released their EP Prepare to Fly in 2017, and has performed at most of the major venues in Boston, with a weekly residency at Darryl’s Corner Bar and Kitchen.
