Earlier this fall, we gave you a listen to Intellect’s single “Scarface Fitted,” a song about the struggle of continually trying to win the love and affection of hip hop itself.
If you stick through the mud long enough, periods of struggle will often lead to breakthroughs. That’s the message of Intellect’s latest single, “My Soul.”

On this edition of The Quinn Spinn, we get to know Keece and Coffin, the musicians and creative forces behind EverSōl. We follow their journeys from Arkansas to Music City, and learn about their process and the lessons they’ve learned.
As we’ve previously established, A.T. Branch is unafraid when it comes to tackling uncomfortable topics. It’s why his forthcoming EP is called Renegade.

Here at Underground Music Collective, we decided that it’s time to get real. About the music industry, and the attitudes and life factors that impact our creative journeys.
One of Elisabeth Beckwitt’s key tenets as an artist is to shine a light on recovery from struggles with mental health and addiction. Sometimes, that journey takes those in recovery to unexpected places.
