Lamar is the latest project led by Minneapolis based singer, songwriter, saxophonist and composer Geoffrey Lamar Wilson. Former frontman of Brooklyn based Jus Post Bellum, also known for his multilayered looped saxophone performances and catchy podcast ditties. This latest project blends his idiomatic inspirations bridging Folk, Soul, R&B and Country, into a collection of songs with a constant ear towards issues of racial and social justice, and the shared human experience. He's joined by drummer James Taylor, Guitarist Steve Bosmans, and Bassist Jason Wells as well as a rotating cast of collaborators and special guests.
Akie is a Brooklyn native raised in a musical household full of jazz and politics fueled by his former- activist mom and dad. He began singing in church, moved it to school for a while, en route becoming some thing of a musical chameleon. His raucous, guttural and soulful vocals are a delectable fusion of Donny Hathaway and Tom Waits. He’s equally adept singing neo-soul, funk, contemporary jazz, alternative rock, and hip hop.
Over the past fifteen years, he has become a visible contributor to the fertile Brooklyn music scene as a musician, songwriter or featured vocalist though he is probably best known for his work with the popular band Lake Street Dive since 2017. When he is home in Brooklyn, he can be found performing at cutting edge venues like Rockwood Music Hall, The Owl Music Parlor, and Wild Birds, among others.
Molly Dean is involved in a multitude of creative projects as a vocalist, instrumentalist & composer. Her music has been described as "deceptively simple" and her presence "enrapturing - a songstress that eschews archetypal female folkisms with subtle rebellion."
