Innovative Sellersville three-piece I&I has a knack for crossing boundaries. At the front of the band is Imani Williams, a rapper with a bold delivery and lyrics that range from lighthearted (“House Party”) to philosophical (“Una Mas”). Drummer Ryan Chud propels her rhymes forward with punchy reggae rhythms, while guitarist / bassist Daniel Faga enhances the vibes by building and manipulating loops of sampled sound. At one point during their Key Studio Session, it sounded like there was a full harmonizing horn section backing I&I up, but no. It was really just the three of them, embracing possibility to spectacular ends. Download the five tracks they recorded below, and catch them in concert this Friday, November 30, when they play The Fire with Blayer Pointdujour and the Rockers Galore.
